Is Paw Patrol: The Movie Safe For Kids? Parent Movie Review
If you have a Paw Patrol fanatic, they have probably been counting down the days for this movie to come into their life.
If they can count, of course!
Paw Patrol: The Movie is rated G and thankfully that is a true rating making Paw Patrol ok for kids (most of them, anyway).
Here’s what we can tell you about the language, peril, violence, and content that could affect your decision on if Paw Patrol: The Movie is kid-friendly.
Language in Paw Patrol: The Movie
There really isn’t ANY concerning language in this movie. Huzzah!
There are some phrases that aren’t necessarily kind, as well as some bullying, but overall, the language in Paw Patrol: The Movie is pretty clean.
Think of sayings like calling someone dumb and trying to disparage by using egghead in a negative way. Pretty harmless for most kids, but just some examples of what the language is like in this one.
Violence and Peril: Is Paw Patrol The Movie Ok For Kids?
The movie is slightly more intense than the show on this level.
More perilous situations for the pups to maneuver than what they have experienced on the tv show.
But again, mostly what you’d expect if you’ve seen the tv show.
Content Warning In Paw Patrol: The Movie
There are some things to consider before watching this movie with your family.
If you have an adoption story/history that is emotionally sensitive, this could be a trigger for young kids.
Chase is dealing with a lot from his past in the movie and his anxiety is clearly seen.
It may impact how your young child reacts if there have been specific adoption-related traumas in their lives.
What Ages Can Watch Paw Patrol: The Movie?
Any kiddo who can sit for 90 minutes watching a movie should be fine for this one! And parents, thanks to the voices involved, you probably won’t mind sitting through this one as well.
So ages 3 to 93 are good to go when considering heading to the theater for Paw Patrol: The Movie.
The runtime is pretty typical for G-rated movies but it is obviously longer than a Paw Patrol tv episode. Keep that in mind before you go to the theater for this one.
You can also watch this on Paramount Plus, so if you are concerned about seeing a movie in a theater at this time, that’s a great option!
