The movie is promoted as it is made for every age group. However, some of the scenes in the movie are not appropriate for young kids. In one scene of the movie, Ming is seen holding some kind of sanitary pads. If you watch this movie with your kids, be ready to explain to them the use of sanitary pads. 

Other than this, Turning Red gained a lot of controversies after Sean O’Connell wrote his point of view about the movie on Twitter. He wrote, 

“I recognized the humor in the film but connected with none of it. By rooting Turning Red very specifically in the Asian community of Toronto, the film legitimately feels like it was made for Domee Shi’s friends and immediate family members, which is fine – but also, a tad limiting in its scope.” “Some Pixar films are made for universal audiences. ‘Turning Red’ is not. The target audience for this one feels very specific and very narrow. If you are in it, this might work very well for you. I am not in it. This was exhausting,” he added.

The fans of Turning Red do not seem to be happy with Sean’s review and started criticizing him. This criticism made Sean delete his tweet and also he wrote a tweet again in which he apologized for his previous tweet. In the second tweet, he wrote,

“I’m genuinely sorry for my Turning Red review. Thank you to everyone who has reached out with criticism, no matter how harsh. It is clear that I didn’t engage nearly enough with the movie, nor did I explain my point of view well, at all. I really appreciate your feedback.”
