Great new movies for kids seem few and far between these days. But instead of watching Frozen for the hundredth time, you can introduce your kids to the cynical Flora (Matilda Lawler), whose parents have separated, and her amazing squirrel friend, Ulysses. Flora is an avid comic book fan, and her life changes when she rescues Ulysses. She finds out that he isn’t just any squirrel — this little buddy is super strong, extra intelligent, and can fly. He becomes a superhero in her colorful and imaginative world.
This movie has plenty to entertain parents, too. The comedy is loaded with comedians from some of your favorite movies and TV shows: Alyson Hannigan (How I Met Your Mother) and Ben Schwartz (Parks & Recreation) play Flora’s separated parents. The cast also includes Danny Pudi, Bobby Moynihan, Janeane Garofalo, and Kate Micucci.
