Double Movie Review: The Rescuers and The Rescuers Down Under
My Thoughts: I am happy to report that these two films, which I loved as a child, hold up to adult viewing. While they cannot quite match the best Disney animated movies, the charming characters, colorful animation, and heart-warming stories are likely to be please anyone who enjoys animation and animal fantasy.
The Rescuers is the stronger of the two films, due to being a bit better written, but The Rescuers Down Under is still a good movie and has better music. If you like The Rescuers, you are pretty much certain to like its sequel, which gives those of us who appreciate classic animation a charming pair of movies to watch for years to come.
Content Overview: The Rescuers has a villainess who dresses immodestly. Some viewers may be bothered by a female character getting sent on dangerous missions. There is also some mild violence and a few mild scary scenes.
