Hey Arnold! The Movie
Source: Catholic News Service
Humdrum animated comedy based on the cartoon television series in which a feisty young boy (voiced by Spencer Klein) and his friend (voiced by Jamil Smith) try to save their multi-ethnic neighborhood from being bulldozed by a heartless developer (voiced by Paul Sorvino) who wants to replace the area with a huge shopping mall. Director Tuck Tucker's film preaches about the evils of giant corporations and the value of looking on the bright side, which may be suitable for older children, but flat animation rarely rises to the witty heights it aims for and a drawn-out story lacks the inventiveness to make the film anything more than a longer version of a TV episode. Some cartoon violence and menacing scenes. The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops classification is A-II -- adults and adolescents. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG -- parental guidance suggested.
