Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “Featuring new music from the writers of “The Greatest Showman” / Based on the best-selling book series by Bernard Waber, ‘Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile’ is a live-action/CGI musical comedy that brings this character to a global audience.

When the Primm family (Constance Wu, Scoot McNairy, Winslow Fegley) moves to New York City, their young son Josh struggles to adapt to his new school and new friends. All of that changes when he discovers Lyle - a singing crocodile (Shawn Mendes) who loves baths, caviar and great music-living in the attic of his new home. The two become fast friends, but when Lyle’s existence is threatened by evil neighbor Mr. Grumps (Brett Gelman), the Primm’s must band together with Lyle’s charismatic owner, Hector P. Valenti (Javier Bardem), to show the world that family can come from the most unexpected places and there’s nothing wrong with a big singing crocodile with an even bigger personality.”

—Very clean and fun family movie. With a great message of family being there for each other. The movie has clean songs and the crocodile in the movie is a cute character the kids will like. This is probably one of the cleaner movies for Christians to watch, and I highly recommend it.
