Bigfoot Family | 2020 | TV-Y7 | – 1.3.1

content-ratingsWhy is “Bigfoot Family” rated TV-Y7? The TV Parental Guidelines Monitoring Board rating indicates that “this program is designed for children age 7 and above.” The Kids-In-Mind.com evaluation includes a kiss between teenagers and some flirting, scenes of dangerous activity to thwart a man’s activities that will harm the environment including people and animals being shot at with tranquilizer darts, driving vehicles fast on unpaved roads, falling great distances with a couple of injuries, being chased by armed drones, and a little mild language. Read our parents’ guide below for details on sexual content, violence & strong language.


After a man’s (voiced by Alexis Victor) DNA is altered in a lab experiment and he becomes Bigfoot, he determines that his newfound fame should be used for good. Hence, he embarks on a mission to uncover the lies being told by an oil company that claims to have no environmental impact during their retrieval process in a pristine Alaskan wilderness. Also with the voices of Kylian Trouillard, Marie Chevalot, Frederic Souterelle, Sébastien Desjours, Pierre Tessier, Xavier Fagnon and Clara Quilichini. Directed by Jeremy Degruson & Ben Stassen. [Running Time: 1:29]

Bigfoot Family SEX/NUDITY 1

 – A teen girl kisses a boy and takes him by the hand to walk together. A woman on a TV show seems to be flirting with a guest; she remarks about his appearance and touches his knee during the interview. A woman talks about how shy her husband was when they first met. A teen girl talks about a teen boy being “so cute,” and “shy.” A woman complains that a TV host is getting “handsy” with her husband on the air. A raccoon says, “Oo-la-la,” a couple of times teasing a teen boy about having a girlfriend. A raccoon throws a kiss to a teen boy.
 A woman on a TV show wears a low-cut and short dress that reveals cleavage, bare legs to the upper thighs and shoulders.

Bigfoot Family VIOLENCE/GORE 3

 – A man jumps a fence at night and runs through a heavily guarded area, he hears explosions and sees a deep pit where we see a flash and the scene cuts away; we then hear that the man has gone missing. A rabbit darts through snow-covered terrain chased by a wolf, it slides through an ice tunnel, pops out and the wolf continues chasing it to a ledge where they are both startled by explosions and a flash in the distance (the rabbit gets away). Armed guards pound on the side of a van and a bear and a raccoon from inside the van attack them, they shoot them with tranquilizer darts and chase a teen boy through woods shooting at him; the boy runs and falls over a cliff where the guards assume he did not survive and leave (he is not harmed). A wolf prowls toward a teen boy in woods, it lunges at the boy and grabs his leg, and the boy pulls away and convinces the wolf to leave him alone. A man puts handcuffs on a teen boy and throws him down a deep hole and shoves a mining car in after him (we see the boy pinned among structures and he eventually frees himself, unharmed), the boy lands and catches a skull in his hands and he throws it as he screams. A man is shown tied to a pillar and he frees himself but wooden beams collapse on him breaking his leg; his leg glows but does not heal completely and a teen boy waves his hands over the wounded limb repairing the break.
 An explosive device is lowered into a deep hole where a man, a woman and a teen boy are hiding and they dodge drones that chase them through passageways, and they get in a coal cart and speed along a track; the drones have weapons that they use to try to harm the humans, the teen boy hits one with a hammer breaking it, one drone pulls the boy off the cart and he and the woman fall to another cart. A teen boy lowers himself into a hole and switches off an explosive. Three people climb into an elevator in a mine and a drone cuts the cable causing them to fall a great distance (there are no injuries).We hear an explosion and the ground shakes; a family of beavers scurry through the forest floor as oil bubbles to the surface and pools, they run into a road and are nearly hit by a truck. Armed guards patrol a gate leading to a bridge outside an oil company set up. Three people ride in a coal cart through an area where oil is burning and they cough; the woman says the smoke is toxic. Three people fall into rapids and are swept toward a waterfall; a teen boy gets out of the water and a man and a woman are taken over the waterfall but are OK. A man says that he blew up his old foster home with a fracking bomb. A man speeds toward an explosive with another bomb, he is cut off by a bear pushing a van toward him, the bomb is thrown into the air and a man catches it, but throws it far into the sky where it explodes causing no damage. A man runs from police helicopters, a rabbit jumps on his face, a wolf chases him, and the man falls in a pool of oil.
 A moose chases and butts a man as he runs away, the moose butts a tree where the man has climbed to get away and the moose yells, “Buzz off, get off my land”; the moose does this with others that it encounters throughout the movie. A moose butts a man and throws him into the air; he lands on top of another man in a pool of oil. A dog walks in front of a car and the driver stops short (the dog is not harmed); causing a raccoon in the car to slam into the windshield. A man yells at an employee in several scenes.
 A teen boy climbs out a window in a school, lands on a dumpster, falls inside the dumpster and is discovered by a teen girl (flies buzz around). A teen boy is chased by other teens and a man to get an autograph from his father; they follow him into the bathroom and reach under the stall where he sits on the toilet, trying to avoid them. A teen boy falls on the ground and holds his foot, it glows and he talks about having the power to heal. A man is frightened by a pilot flying a small plane, spinning and diving rapidly; the man vomits twice after landing (we hear retching and splatter and do not see goo).
 A truck drives off the road after passing a van with a bear in the backseat. A van blows a tire and a bear holds it off the ground by the bumper to change the tire. A van is stuck in mud and cannot move. A bear, a raccoon and a moose push a van out of mud and up a hill where the moose chases the others away; the raccoon speeds on narrow roads, crashes through a gate, crashes through warning signs and over a cliff and slams into a tree.
 A man yells at another man trying to get him to sign a contract; he growls and the man runs out of the house. We see several advertisements for a “clean oil” company and references are made to the possibility of actually producing clean oil being fake news. A man talks about DNA and genetic sequencing; he says that an experiment he was conducting caused a mutation that transformed him into Bigfoot; he says that he was pursued by pharmaceutical companies after his mutation and that all he wants to do is make the world a better place. There are many references to the environmental impact of oil drilling. A teen boy yells at his father and becomes upset about his leaving home again. A teen boy threatens to jump out of the window while his mother is driving if she doesn’t stop asking him questions. A woman threatens a bear, “You let anything happen to him and you are a rug.” A reference is made to an animal having fleas. A raccoon yells while playing a video game and complains that the raccoon is the weakest character.
 A man pretends to be shooting guns and says, “Pew, pew” while making a pistol gesture with his hands. We see an abandoned mining town in Alaska and we are told that nature has reclaimed the area. A bear showers in a bathroom in a house; other wild animals also live in the house with humans. A raccoon flips pancakes from a pan and one splats onto a woman’s in the face. A woman flips a pancake and it splats onto a raccoon’s face. A teen boy spits while he talks (we see spittle spray). A woman stuffs marshmallows in her ears while a man sings.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
