JoJo hehehe. what kind of a name is that! What is he… GeRmAn!?!?!

Jojo Rabbit is a fantastic movie for critics and viewers alike but it’s not for people who take offense to many things. The overall plot of the movie is a German boy named Jojo who lives with his mom and wants to be a Nazi soldier one day. Jojo’s mom is hiding a Jewish girl in their house and she doesn’t want Jojo to find out. Jojo ends up finding out. Jojo hates her at first but ends up falling in love with her even though he’s like ten. 

The story is well written out with a good plot and detail. At first, it seems like a silly kids comedy but it turns out to be much more. Taika Waititi the writer of the movie did a great job of capturing a movie version of the book Caging Skies. They took the usually not funny offensive humor that is actually funny and placed it right into the movie. The humor is pretty kiddy at first but then the humor will grow on you. The humor is based on how Jojo thinks Hitler is a good funny guy and he helps him. It isn’t actually Hitler it’s just Jojos imagination. This comes from how Jojo’s dad went away and didn’t come back and Jojo sees Hitler as a father figure.

The actor that played Jojo is up for many awards in many categories. He won Critics Choice award for the best young actor and he was up for nomination for many more like best actor-motion picture for musical or comedy, outstanding performance by the cast in a motion picture, and many more. The performance in the role brought the movie to the great ratings it has. The movie has an 80 percent on rotten tomatoes for the Tomatometer and a 95 percent audience score. It also has 8/10 stars on IMDB and the ratings are very favored in a good direction.

*Spoiler Warning!!* The movie Jojo Rabbit has a very interesting ending to it. The movie ends a while after Jojo’s mom was hung after the Nazis found out she was hiding a jew in her house. The Americans come and invade the Nazis and the Nazis don’t have nearly as many soldiers as the Americans. This is towards the end of the war when Hitler killed himself and the Germans were hopeless.  Jojo gets saved by one of the Nazi soldiers that were friends with Jojo and he acted like Jojo was an American and he was a Nazi. This saved Jojo and they killed the Nazis.
