Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that although the hero is 5, this movie comes with caveats for those who are squeamish or easily scared. Also, parents should know that the contrived story is unnecessarily sinister, neither true to its comic-strip origins nor suitably updated.
- Sexual Content
- Dennis and his pals discuss how babies get into a mother's stomach (the mother's belly button opens up so the baby can enter). Dennis tells Mrs. Wilson how his parents "wrestle" on Sunday mornings, by themselves and with their shirts off.
- When Christopher Lloyd takes his lumps, the result is a bloody, swollen face. Dennis is kidnapped by a hobo.
- Mr. Wilson says the initials "G-D" out loud when he's really upset.
- Social Behavior
- All the female characters wear dresses only. Margaret is obsessed by girlish things, such as turning the boys' fort into a house with curtains. Some bathroom humor and mean-spirited gags.
