  • Details
  • Cast
With a cast of child actors -- including Scott Baio as the titular Bugsy Malone and Jodie Foster as a speakeasy songbird -- director Alan Parker's audacious musical sends up Prohibition-era mobster flicks. Young wiseguy Bugsy finds himself drawn into a turf war when a rival gang unleashes its newest weapon, the splurge gun -- which fires whipped cream instead of bullets. Paul Williams snagged an Oscar nomination for the film's score.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that while all the violence here involves cream pies and cream-loaded "splurge guns," there's still menace behind it and characters do "die" of their cream-filled wounds. There are cream massacres and cream-pie hits. There's also a great deal of sexualization of tween girls, with young girls saying that they watch their figures and dancing suggestively. Jodie Foster's character sings about how the men in the audience "don't have to be lonely."

Sexual Content

Lots of tween girls wearing sexy outfits, but no sexual behavior. Tallulah kisses Bugsy on the forehead.

Violence

Lots of comic violence with guns filled with cream. Instead of being shot with bullets, kids are "killed" with the help of semiautomatic "splurge guns." Scenes with these guns include a massacre at a speakeasy and pies in the face. Bugsy gets beaten up and robbed. Leroy boxes and punches someone out in the ring.

Language

One use of "hell."

Social Behavior

Lots of kid-themed debauchery, including a bootleg sarsaparilla racket, stealing, and breaking the law.

Consumerism

Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Only if you count bootleg root beer.
