(2018) Turning the legend of Bigfoot on its head, this animated musical comedy charts the quest of a young yeti (voice of Channing Tatum) to prove that so-called smallfeet, that is, humans, exist, despite the fact that the inscribed stones by which the life of his mountaintop community has traditionally been regulated (their current custodian voiced by Common) deny this. Journeying below the clouds to look for proof, he encounters the host (voice of James Corden) of a nature-themed television show and, by presenting him to his fellows, throws their whole way of thinking into doubt. Adults will easily perceive the false opposition the film’s main storyline presents between revealed truth and those empirical facts that can be discovered through scientific investigation. Yet this can afford parents an opportunity to have an age-appropriate conversation about faith with their teens. A misguided portrayal of religion, some rude humor. (A-II — adults and adolescents) (PG — parental guidance suggested) HBO (cable)
