Parents need to know that Paulie is a sweet, sensitively handled tale about the bond between a bird and his owner, with some great lessons about friendship, but it does include the death of a caretaker (implied, not shown explicitly or with any scariness), a tearful separation between a child and her pet, and a few other potentially frightening scenes. In one, a girl falls off a roof but is rescued; in another, the bird is abandoned, and later becomes trapped in a house. Additionally, for a portion of the film the bird is an accomplice to theft and robbery, though he learns it is wrong.
