this is a great movie
Seeing as this is a Speilberg movie, you almost have to automatically love it. It has that certain charm that only a Speilberg movie has. It's great and a great movie for kids. There are some minor things that might concern parents, though. There is some swearing (not a ton, though) that includes "a**", "sh*t", "d*mn", and "hell", but not much of a concern. There are only two scenes that are slightly sexual. There is one scene where one of the main female characters is riding in a car with a guy who adjusts his rear-view mirror so he can look down her shirt (nothing is shown though, and she tells him to stop). The other scene is when a group of teenage guys are standing around and mention "making it" (refering to sex) with that same female character. There is a scene where one of the kids falsely translates for a hispanic woman on purpose as a joke, mentioning drugs, "sexual torture devices", and locking her in a closet with cockroaches. Most young kids will not understand what they're talking about, and older ones will probably be mature about it. Kids are shot at, but nobody is actually hit. In all, this is a great and somewhat beautiful movie that most parents who grew up with it will enjoy showing to their children. Hope this review helped.
