Is The Bob’s Burger Movie Appropriate for Kids Under 12?

If you’re a fan of crude humor and overall a Bob’s Burger fan, there’s no reason for you not to enjoy this film. If you’re a newcomer and want to watch something with the family this weekend that’s not a horrifying Stranger Things 4, well, just be careful. Some humor is very Simpsons like where it may make some uncomfortable, but being animated softens the blow.

This kind of humor is not my thing, but I understand why it appeals to many. Parents need to be aware that some jokes are inappropriate for kids and can be sexist and/or misogynistic, but hey as Linda says, “sex sells.”
