Politics for your children.
15 February 2014 | by rushknightSee all my reviews

It's a cute little movie about a young girl who invites an intelligent derelict to sleep in the shed in her backyard. In so doing, her eyes are opened to the needs of homeless people everywhere.

It also includes several somewhat silly references to how bad he smells, some poor computer animation displaying his ability to clear rooms with his smell, toss his smell at people he doesn't like, etc. He's like a superhero.

All of that is fine and good, nothing wrong with it. It's entertaining for kids I'm sure.

However, if I DID have any children I wouldn't let them watch this nonsense, because it's a very thinly veiled propaganda video, displaying some particularly shallow political views.

It's clearly very left-wing (or whatever they call it in Britain, I'm from the U.S. so I may have the word wrong), and practices the usual tactic of making the other side (right-wingers) look like silly idiots who just happen to be insensitive to the needs of other people. But Oh! Once our eyes are opened we all want to help the homeless! In reality, such issues are far more complicated and require a bit more thought.

If you don't feel that you can adequately explain political topics to your children, then do them a favor and DON'T let them watch socialized propaganda designed to steer them in whatever political direction is currently deemed most popular.

You have public education for that.
