Plugged In exists to shine a light on the world of popular entertainment while giving you and your family the essential tools you need to understand, navigate and impact the culture in which we live. Through reviews, articles and discussions, we want to spark intellectual thought, spiritual growth and a desire to follow the command of Colossians 2:8: "See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world rather than on Christ."


Family uses Plugged In as a ‘significant compass’

"I am at a loss for words to adequately express how much it means to my husband and me to know that there is an organization like Focus that is rooting for us. Just today I was reading Psalm 37 and thinking about how your ministry provides ways to 'dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.' We have two teenagers and an 8-year-old in our household...Plugged In has become a significant compass for our family. All three of our kids are dedicated to their walk with Christ but they still encounter challenges. Thanks for all of your research and persistence in helping us navigate through stormy waters."

Plugged In helps college student stand-up for his belief

"Thanks for the great job you do in posting movie and television reviews online. I’m a college freshman and I recently had a confrontational disagreement with my English professor regarding an R-rated film. It is her favorite movie and she wanted to show it in class. I went to your Web site to research the film’s content. Although I had not seen the movie myself, I was able to make an educated argument against it based on the concerns you outlined. The prof said that she was impressed by my stand and decided to poll the whole class and give us a choice. We overwhelmingly voted to watch a G-rated movie instead! I’ve learned that I can trust your site and I will be using it a lot in the future.”

Plugged In brings ‘Sanity and Order’ to Non-believer

“Even though I don’t consider myself a Christian, I find your Plugged In Web site useful and thought-provoking. No one reviews movies like you do. Instead of being judgmental, you put entertainment ‘on trial.’ After presenting the evidence, you allow the jury of your readers to decide for themselves what they should do. In my opinion, you bring sanity and order to the wild world of modern day entertainment. Keep up the good work!”

Mom thinks Plugged In is the ‘BEST Christian media review site’

"Our family doesn't go to the movies until we go online and check out your assessment of a given film. I think this is the BEST Christian media review website that I've found, and I recommend it to my family and friends. Keep up the good work!"


Our hope is that whether you're a parent, youth leader or teen, the information and tools at Plugged In will help you and your family make appropriate media decisions. We are privileged to do the work we do, and are continually thankful for the generosity and support from you, our loyal readers, listeners and friends.

Movie Review

When Winnie the Pooh organizes an elaborate plan to harvest honey from a beehive, he leaves out Piglet—because he’s too small to help. Naturally, Pooh and the gang have their honey of a plan end in disaster. But that's not the worst of it. Once things calm down, Pooh and his pals discover that Piglet is missing. Using Piglet’s scrapbook as a guide, they go off looking for him. As they search they remember warm and fuzzy stories about Piglet and realize that their cuddliest cohort played a robust role in their lives. Piglet, of course, isn’t lost. He's learned that his friends' honey harvest went badly and is, himself, searching for them.

positive elements: Themes of self-sacrifice and true friendship stand out. Tots, especially, appreciate the message that you don’t have to be big to accomplish great things. Piglet’s memory book shows his friends how much they’ve meant in his life. And by looking at the pictures to try and find Piglet, his friends (especially Winnie the Pooh) figure out how important Piglet is to them. Characters are polite to each other.

sexual content: None.

violent content: Bees chase Pooh and his friends when they try to get their honey. They also destroy Rabbit's violin. Storms look ominous and could frighten very young children. After being given a tonic, Piglet ricochets off the walls. Rabbit is hit by a metal tub. A snowball runs over Pooh, Piglet and Tigger. A pin accidentally goes into Tigger's rear when they play Pin the Tail on the Donkey. Tigger and Rabbit fight over Piglet’s memory book and end up throwing it in the river. Pooh risks his life to save Piglet’s scrapbook by walking out on a log over a huge waterfall. When the log breaks, it seems as if Pooh and Piglet may be lost forever.

crude or profane language: None.

drug and alcohol content: None.

conclusion: Piglet’s Big Movie is anything but an oinker. Kids will love it simply because it's vibrant Pooh. Adult fans of the classic A.A. Milne tales will appreciate the tenderness and care with which these previously unproduced stories were brought to life. Kudos to John Fielder for lending his wonderful voice to Piglet for all these years. His presence here is pretty special since he's the last remaining cast member from the original Winnie the Pooh featurettes.

Told as a series of flashbacks, viewers learn along with Winnie the Pooh that "Piglet seems to be the hero of every story." And he’s the hero of this film as well. Always humble and a little unsure of himself, however, Piglet sighs, "I’ve never done anything great." That’s when his friends show him all the times he’s made a difference. What parent wouldn’t want their children to be like Piglet, who’s described by his friends as "always happy to see you. Always thoughtful. Always brave. Never thinking of himself."
