Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that the story of this movie is a good vs. evil parable. There are some frightening moments when the kids travel through time and space. There are separations -- the father is missing, the mother is sad, the siblings who need each other become parted for a while (although it ends happily) so kids going through an emotional time might want to pass. The giant brain IT is never shown in its entirety, which disappointed several kids who love the book and wanted to see the real evil.
