Impossibly adorable and standing only 12 inches tall, the meerkat clan in the new National Geographic release Meerkats 3D is freakishly relatable. That’s likely due more to the film’s design then its subjects — the animals’ existence is narrated with highly emotive plot and each tiny desert dweller is granted a quirky human title. Still, when one meerkat embraces another or pops out of a hole like a nosy neighbor, forget it: Your heart simply crumbles and turns to dust. Meerkats 3D gives us the long-format (60 minute) tale of Clinky, the tenacious matriarch of a 20-strong family. As a tribe, they’ll defend their arid turf from invading adorable families, do battle with poisonous snakes and reptiles and cuddle under sunsets — which is all we really want to see anyway. Smile for a solid hour during the film’s 1:30 or 3:30 p.m. daily screenings. Visit perotmuseum.org. Tickets range $6 to $8.
