Mostly family fun, watch the language and gun violence.

Inappropriate language: Shut up, idiot, stupid. Very blatant and easy for the kids to infer usage. Violence: there is a scene where the professor is shot at (with a gun!) and it hits the side view mirror. Also, a commander in the army threatens to shoot the car out of the sky with missiles.

One of Disney's Best Comedies

I saw it when I was on a campout for Boy Scouts. All the boys who were watching it thought it was very funny, and they clapped when it was over. Nothing really is an issue,and the main character is a good role model, even though he's so absent minded.

A Classic, Silly Fun, All White

Our six year old loved it, and her parents enjoyed it too. The "flubber" jumping effects worked because they weren't realistic in the way modern effects try to be. The movie does portray a strange mythical all white America. Not a person of color to be seen in the entire film which could off putting, especially to children of color. Subtle jokes about Congress and the military Joint Chiefs at the end still hold up today.

This movie has all kinds of goofy action and funny characters. Nothing offensive about it. A true family movie.
