Curly Sue

1991 PG 1h 41m DVD
  • Overview
  • Details
  • Cast
This John Hughes film features the unlikeliest of pairings between street-smart youngster Curly Sue (Alisan Porter) and her guardian, Bill Dancer (Jim Belushi), a sometime con man with the proverbial heart of gold. Managing to stay a step ahead of authorities, the pair even charms an icy corporate attorney (Kelly Lynch). But before the threesome can be a family, they must contend with well-meaning but misinformed advocates from social services.

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.

Sexual Content

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.

Violence

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.

Language

The child heroine swears often and with wide variety. The adults offer no example.

Social Behavior

Misbehavior abounds with no real consequences.

Consumerism
