Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this film deals with the loss of a parent, presents a child heroine with the mouth of a sailor, incompetent adult protectors, rampant, senseless violence and a message that women should stay home with children rather than work in the outside world. Curly Sue and her dad have little respect for the law; they pick and choose which rules they follow.
The little girl knows way too much about sex and boasts about it. The lawyer talks about photographs of a client in a compromising situation.
Curly Sue whacks her father in the head with a stick. Three people repeatedly punch a man in the face. A man is deliberately thrown face-first from a car into a cement girder. These examples are indicative of the senseless violence that occurs throughout the movie.
The child heroine swears often and with wide variety. The adults offer no example.
Misbehavior abounds with no real consequences.
