Cop and a HalfClose
Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this comedy has quite a bit of slapstick violence and potentialy frightening mobster characters. Bullies take money from smaller children, and kids call each other names, though bad guys always lose in the end. Expect a fair bit of rude/crude language ("ass," "jerk," "idiot") and plenty of unrealistic scenarios in which an 8-year-old character fends for himself.
