Rated PG for comic action and mild language.


Kevin looks at a Playboy Magazine in Buzz's private stuff, but it only shows the front cover where a woman's bare breast are partially shown. It is not noticable.

Buzz and his cousin talk about french babe's not shaving their pits and them having nude beaches.


Kevin watches a movie called Angles with Filthy Souls and a robbery happens with the character named Johnny killing another man with a machine gun. Not graphic, but smoke can be seen. Black and white.

Comedic action and slapstick violence:

Kevin climbs the shelf in Buzz's room and it breaks, he and everything falls.

Kevin shoots action figures down the laundry chute with Buzz's BB gun.

Kevin sets traps for the bad guys. They burn themselves, step on stuff that hurts, fall on stuff etc. They step on spikes that hurt their feet, while wearing no shoes nor socks, get hit in the head with an iron, slip on ice, and get hit with a paint can.


- 1 use of Shit

- 2 uses of Ass

- 2 uses of Damn

- 3 uses of Hell


Mild drinking on the plane.

A man dressed as Santa Clause smokes a cigarette.

One of the main plots of he movie is people, comically, trying to break into a house. This could scare a younger audience if easily frightened.
