This film got an average rating of 5 ½ out of 10. However, I would give this movie a 9 out of 10. They gave a woman a role at the end of the movie that is generally played by a man. That is something that is really empowering for women, and it is nice they are finally getting a voice. The movie is a great film to watch with the whole family, and it will not disappoint.
