Family guide to new movie releases

Katie Walsh, Tribune News Service on

Published in Parenting News


Rated PG for thematic elements and mild language.

What it’s about: A girl connects with a band of lonely "Ifs" — "imaginary friends" and tries to matchmake them with new kids.

The kid attractor factor: The animated characters and seemingly kid-friendly story.

Good lessons/bad lessons: It's important to stay connected to our inner childlike wonder in order to navigate the harsh realities of life.

Violence: None, but themes of illness, death, dying.


Language: No swearing but some mild language.

Sex: None

Drugs: None

Parents’ advisory: This rather somber film has some themes of parental death and dying which may be heavy for some young kids. Otherwise OK for kids of all ages.
