Critics Consensus: The Vietnam War would seem an unlikely backdrop for a family-friendly comedy involving an airlifted elephant, and Operation Dumbo Drop lands with a thud.

Wartime adventure has language, violence.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Operation Dumbo Drop, which is set during the Vietnam War, portrays Vietnamese people in a stereotypical way and oversimplifies the atrocities of the conflict. American characters mostly act respectful during the film, though there are moments otherwise, such as someone urinating in a temple. Soldiers joke and tease each other but also show compassion and teamwork. Violence includes physical fights, explosions, and frequent shooting, though the aftermath isn't shown. Occasional language includes "ass," "damn," and "hell." There is a reliance on potty humor at times, with a number of scenes involving the elephant's bodily functions. The death of parents is mentioned, a young character is orphaned, and there's a separation of characters at the end that may be upsetting for younger viewers.
