The content of this page was created directly by users and has not been screened or verified by IMDb staff.
Since the beliefs that parents want to instill in their children can vary greatly, we ask that, instead of adding your personal opinions about what is right or wrong in a film, you use this feature to help parents make informed viewing decisions by describing the facts of relevant scenes in the title for each one of the different categories: Sex and Nudity, Violence and Gore, Profanity, Alcohol/Drugs/Smoking, and Frightening/Intense Scenes.

Sex & Nudity

A pre-teen girl yells "He touched my breasts!" to escape from a man.

Later, whilst at a pay phone, the man mutters to himself "She didn't have any breasts!".

A boy leans in to kiss a girl, but she pushes him away saying that she will never kiss a guy. The boy then asks, "How about a girl?" In rebuttal, she grabs him by the shirt and kisses him.

Violence & Gore

Man threatens another man with a (very) small knife (intended as a comedic scene). Man attacks another man's car with a shovel while he is trying to drive away, smashing its lights and mirror.


Some mild use of profane language by adults and by children.

A father gets mad at his delinquent teenage son for having been drinking.

The bounty hunter pursuing the children can be frightening at times. However much of the movie is played off in a comedic manner and, despite the attempts at drama and family characterization, you might say the movie "never takes itself too seriously." For every frightening scene, there is something comedic or more pleasing to balance things out.
