I have kids ranging from 8-15, and itÃ¢Â€Â™s REALLY hard to find a movie we can all watch, and want to watch. This was one. While the Pixar movies are all good examples of younger aged movies that my teenagers will happily watch and the parents enjoy heartily as well, there simply arenÃ¢Â€Â™t that many well done G rated features out there. So we often end up trying to find PG and even PG-13 movies that work for the range of kids we have. We gambled on Adam Sandler, and it worked as a family film night selectionÃ¢Â€Â”hard to do. ItÃ¢Â€Â™s a sweet, slightly melodramatic and very slap sticky affair; cats get thrown out of a 5th story window, bounce off the rescue mat, and land in a cake, a guyÃ¢Â€Â™s afro, etc. The only potentially objectionable things are the periodic use of [email protected]

#$, and a couple of scenes where SandlerÃ¢Â€Â™s character pummels a bad guy. The latter are so funny, itÃ¢Â€Â™s hard (for me anyway) to call them objectionable, even for an 8 year old. The very occasional profanity was the only part of the movie I wish our youngest could have skipped.
