Critics Consensus: The story is heavy on syrupy uplift and turns Radio into a saint/cuddly pet.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Radio has a couple of bad words and a sad death (off-screen). In a cruel prank, Radio is sent into the girls' locker room (nothing shown). Characters are cruel but learn their lesson. Even though it is set in the South in the decade after the Civil Rights Act was passed, the movie avoids stereotyping the white residents as racist.
