Andy: You can tell by the plot summary that Turbo is an inherently ridiculous story. For the most part, the movie seems to understand that absurdity and embrace it. It does not quite get to the point of parody, but the movie is somewhat self-aware. This also makes for some awkward moments when the movie tries to get serious, but for the most part it carries enough charm that it is easy to overlook some of the missteps.
Turbo is a highly entertaining children’s movie. While it does not achieve greatness, it does provide a clean, fun hour and a half distraction worthy of a B.
Final Grade: B
