Sony Pictures Home Entertainment provided with the featured product for promotional consideration. Opinions expressed are honest and my own.

We had a fantastic family movie night watching LYLE, LYLE CROCODILE courtesy of Sony Pictures providing us with an advance copy of the movie before its official December 13 home video release on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD. I actually wasn't expecting to like LYLE, LYLE CROCODILE as much as I did to be honest thinking it would be more focused towards entertaining the young children that the book which inspired the movie was written for. This movie though will actually captivate audiences of all ages! The adults in our family as well as our teen kids all thought LYLE, LYLE CROCODILE was great.

My family loves the Paddington movies that mix in a mischievous cgi bear with live action. This film has the same setup and many similarities when it comes to an orphaned animal being adopted by an off-kilter family leading to humorous scenarios that ultimately result in everyone's attitudes and spirits being uplifted. In this movie though it isn't a bear from darkest Peru but rather a singing crocodile that is the star of the show.

LYLE, LYLE CROCODILE is elevated beyond the funny hijink of a friendly crocodile living in the city by also including toe-tapping musical sequences. The entertaining songs incorporated into the movie soundtrack provide an energetic vibe to the film. Plus, LYLE, LYLE CROCODILE is filled with original, new music from the songwriters of THE GREATEST SHOWMAN. I really have to say BRAVO to the music in this movie!

LYLE, LYLE CROCODILE is rated PG by the Motion Picture Association of America. The MPAA rating is for mild peril and thematic elements. As a dad have to say in my opinion this movie is all ages friendly without anything parents should really be worried about a child seeing. A great film for a family movie night!

In LYLE, LYLE CROCODILE when the Primm family moves to New York City their young son Josh struggles to adapt to his new school and make friends. All of that changes when he discovers Lyle -- a singing crocodile who loves baths, caviar and great music -- living in the attic of his new home. The boy and crocodile become close friends, but when Lyle is threatened by evil neighbor Mr. Grumps, the Primm's must band together with the crocodile's charismatic and aloof owner, Hector P. Valenti, to show the world that family can come together from the most unexpected places. There is nothing wrong with a big singing crocodile with an even bigger personality!
