Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this movie is packaged with Benji's Dog Tale Collection, but is much more graphic and mature than Benji movies. Instead, viewers will see an intense portrayal of a troubled teenage girl lost in the desert with a teenage boy. The movie includes racial epithets directed at Latinos, a family dog driven mad by rabies who gets shot and killed, graphic scenes of injured legs and snake bites treated with maggots and pocket knives, and mild profanity.

Sexual Content

Before falling asleep while lost in the desert, one character tells another character, "Don't get any ideas. We're not sleeping together."


Graphic scenes of maggots crawling on an animal carcass, later removed by a character and used to treat the bleeding, infected, and nearly gangrened wound of another character. A venomous snake is shown biting one of the characters, and another character treats the bite by taking out a knife and cutting into the skin where the bite happened. An older character falls to the ground, the victim of a stroke. The family dog runs away, catches rabies, is presumed dead, returns to the movie driven mad by the rabies and trying to attack the two main characters, is later shot to death by a border patrol officer.


Profanity from the older characters as well as the teenage character include "hell," "ass," and "damn." The older character uses racial epithets derogatory towards Latinos.

Social Behavior

In spite of their perceived differences, Andy learns to like Antonio as they try and survive in the desert.
