Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Against the Wild features two tweens who are lost in the wilderness after their small plane crashes in the woods. With just their faithful husky, the siblings face harsh terrain and dangerous animals as they struggle to survive. The family-friendly film has no swearing or anything else that may alarm parents, though small kids may be frightened at the sight of other children threatened by a bear.

Sexual Content


Two kids are lost in the wilderness and are threatened at various times by animals, including wolves and a bear.


One girl mentions that her "bum" hurts.

Social Behavior

When faced with a life-or-death situation, kids can be surprisingly resilient and resourceful, and even siblings who normally bicker all the time can learn to work together.
