This review of the movie contains the following information:
Bob (voice of H. Jon Benjamin) had a dream of opening up a wonderful burger place where people would flock for a taste of his incredible and unusual burger combinations. He and his wife, Linda (voice of John Roberts), made the dream a reality but when they begin to have trouble making payments to the bank and are denied an extension on their loan, Bob is faced with the loss of his dreams and wonders how things could possibly get any worse. Despite Linda’s perky hopefulness, Bob doesn’t have to wait very long. When a giant sinkhole opens up right in front of their shop, customers are unable to get in and Bob and Linda are unable to sell any burgers. The couple are told that it won’t be long before the hole is filled in but when their youngest daughter, Louise (voice of Kristen Schaal), accidentally falls in and discovers a body, the sinkhole turns into a crime scene and it looks like the bank will foreclose before customers will be able to get back into their shop. When their landlord, Calvin Fischoeder (voice of Kevin Kline), is charged with the murder, Louise, along with her sister Tina (voice of Dan Mintz) and brother Gene (voice of Eugene Mirman), set off to save their dad’s dream; to prove that Calvin is innocent; and bring the real murderer to justice.

Research shows that children are at risk of learning that violence is an acceptable means of conflict resolution when violence is glamourised, performed by an attractive hero, successful, has few real life consequences, is set in a comic context and / or is mostly perpetrated by male characters with female victims, or by one race against another.
Repeated exposure to violent content can reinforce the message that violence is an acceptable means of conflict resolution. Repeated exposure also increases the risks that children will become desensitised to the use of violence in real life or develop an exaggerated view about the prevalence and likelihood of violence in their own world.
