Please give me some advises about this sentence. It is from an review for a movie called The Secret World of Arrietty. "There are misadventures along the way, including a run-in with the housekeeper, Hara (Carol Burnett reprising a bit of her Miss Hannigan traits), that show just how heroic our little heroine is. As in: smart, bring-your-daughter-to-this heroic." What is the last sentence mean? Is it a kind of example?

There's nothing wrong with the sentence. It's not slang either. It's a short phrase giving a clearer idea of what the writer means by "heroic". The protagonist is smart, and a good example for young women ("bring-your-daughter-to-this heroic" = it sets a good example; your daughter should see it).

It's either bad English or a typo, but one could assume that the author intended to write "heroic film."
