This movie is rated TV 14, and even though there are some nude scenes, they are quick (when the animals change), and you don't see anything more than a butt, as far as obscenity goes, so it's easy to cover the younger kids' eyes. The story is a cute one, and if you ever wondered what your pets are thinking, this movie tries to give you that experience. Justin Chatwit pretty much steals the ENTIRE movie with his protayal of a cat come to life. He has all the moves perfect, attitude included. While the movie is a mite bit predictable, it's much more charming than most of what your kids are being fed on 'teen channels', and it might just bring together some family discussion over not overlooking what is right in front of you!, and learning to stand up for yoruself (and  make lots of backups, LOL). It's a charming movie and a fun one to take the teens too!
