14 and up.

extraordinary measures is a drama and emotional movie that deals with heavy themes such as medical problems,children's life-threatening genetic disease,consequently, several scenes depict sick kids who are near death,and their inconsolable parents that maybe too much for your young kids this movie is best for older teens although the movie does not have violence but it shows very disturbing images of very sick hospitalized children there's no sex but it shows john and Aileen kiss and they make out on a couch half-dressed after she makes a seductive suggestion about helping him take off his clothes there's also some strong language used and also Adults that drink socially in a bar and at dinner the message is about a family fighting for their children.

Nice Story, but Intense

This movie was intense for the longest time. My brother and I wanted to see it because of Harrison Ford mostly, however his character was unlike the ones I have seen him play before. There were several cuss words and many occasions of the Lord's Name being taken in vain. It deals with a very serious story line which would be upsetting to young children. However, minus those aspects, it was a nice message about a family fighting for their children. God is the ultimate Healer should have been the main message. It was a very interesting and nice story though. The two main children make it, which is awesome!! Thx and may GOD bless<><

Inspiring

This is an excellent movie. It shows how love and determination can be driving forces behind achievement of what can seem like impossible goals.
