Not all Christmas movies are suitable for the whole family. What about Candy Cane Lane? Is this Amazon movie something to watch with the kids?
As we get into December, we start to get a string of Christmas movies. Some are great for the whole family, while others are for the older members of the household.
Candy Cane Lane stars Eddie Murphy as Chris, a man who just wants to win his neighborhood home decorating contest for the season. This is a huge local event, and he will do whatever it takes to win. Even making a deal with a mischievous elf.
Of course, he doesn’t realize who he is making a deal with at first. If someone tells you not to read the fine print, you probably should! What happens when he does make this deal? Well, it’s only that the 12 Days of Christmas come to life and cause havoc on the whole neighborhood.
It sounds like something you should watch with the kids, right? Let’s take a look at the age rating.
Candy Cane Lane age rating
Yes, this movie is a family one. Candy Cane Lane officially has a PG rating. This means that it is suitable for children, with parental guidance of course. There are some thematic elements to the story, but there is nothing overly terrifying. If your kids love other Eddie Murphy movies, they’re going to enjoy this one.
There isn’t any swearing in the movie, but there will be some adult humor. This is just a fun ride as the children will look at just how Chris and his family can protect the neighborhood from swans, drummers, lords, and even golden rings—what havoc will they cause? Oh, and we can’t forget the partridge in the pear tree.
Candy Cane Lane is available on Prime Video on Friday, Dec. 1.
