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

A.A. Milne never dreamed that when he created the gloriously unpolluted and uncrowded world of Winnie the Pooh for his own children, he would capture the imagination of generations of children (and children-at-heart). Various television specials have arguably diluted some of the original Pooh charm, but The Tigger Movie is a purist's dream, returning audiences to the simple beauty of those classic shorts most of us know so well from the feature film The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh.

Tigger's lonely. He can't persuade any of his friends to go bouncing with him. Despite his oft-repeated claim that "I'm the only one," he begins to think that surely there must be other tiggers like him to play with. Surely he has a family! So Tigger sets out to find his family, and of course his friends help him out. But it's soon all to evident that their help may do more harm than good. A snowstorm, an avalanche and "the biggest tree" in the Hundred Acre Wood set the stage for what follows.

Positive Elements: Very little isn't positive in The Tigger Movie. Friendship rules the plot. Children are taught about the value of teamwork, loyalty, respect and love. Roo learns that telling a fib, even if it's told to cheer someone up, usually backfires. Voiced by a 9-year-old girl, Roo gets a lot of screen time, providing young viewers with a great role model their own age. Roo ultimately steals the show by diligently trying to learn how to bounce, so Tigger won't feel so alone. When Roo confides that he wants Tigger to be his older brother, Kanga tells Roo that as long as they care for Tigger, he will always be a part of their family.

Spiritual Content: None.

Sexual Content: None.

Violent Content: An avalanche proves to be the most frightening element in the film, and it would only scare the very youngest of viewers. Roo and Tigger bounce around inside houses crashing into things.

Crude or Profane Language: A single use of darn and a single use of heck come as close to profanity as anything here (unless of course doohickey qualifies).

Drug and Alcohol Content: None. (Does honey count? There's lots and lots of honey.)

Other Negative Content: While not part of the film, Disney chose to promote sensual Latin singer Lou Bega by including a short feature before the movie in which Bega performs his hit song "Mambo No. 5." All of the objectionable lyrics in the song are "child-proofed," but his music receives a huge endorsement (the original lyrics celebrate drinking and imply that men should keep multiple lovers at their beck and call).

Summary: A giant bouncy "T-I-double guh-rrr" thumbs up for The Tigger Movie.
