Sci-fi adventure isn't too scary but has lots of clichés.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Spark: A Space Tail is an animated adventure about a 13-year-old monkey named Spark (voiced by Jace Norman) who ends up having to save an entire space kingdom from an evil space lord. There's some peril and cartoonish violence that includes space weapons, explosions, and characters being sucked into a black/worm hole. A group of violent space bugs threaten Spark who kills the queen bug. But all ends well for the main characters, so younger kids shouldn't be too upset. There's a bit of rude/insult language ("loser," "time to kick some as...teroid," banana breath," etc.), and one character asks another for a kiss. The film promotes teamwork, friendship, and communication, though it also makes jokes around the idea that someone short/small might feel inadequate because of their height.
