Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this Sinbad vehicle about the growing pains of the president's son is filled with comedic pratfalls. We get a brief glimpse of bare bottom when the "First Son" moons the press corps as a prank. There is some bullying, and the idea that learning to box will fix that problem. There is a sublot involving an online stalker, but this topic is dealt with less in a substantive way and more as tools to advance the story, but the fact that they are in the film does offer families the chance to discuss these issues in more constructive ways.
- Sexual Content
- Brief nonsexual glimpse of Luke's bottom as he moons the press corps at the mall as a prank.
- Lots of comedic pratfalls in this one. Characters fall into walls, trip on floors, roller skate into giant birthday cakes. As the new kid at his school, Luke encounters bullying, and gets into two fistfights with another boy. During a climactic scene, characters pull guns as Luke is nearly abducted.
- "Sucks" is said twice, "hell" is said once, and Sam is often called a "dork" by the bullies at school.
- Social Behavior
- Even if he is the "First Kid," Luke is still a kid and needs to go out and experience life like any other boy. If kids don't get the love, attention, and care they need, they'll act out.
- At a roller rink, Sinbad's character dresses as a giant Coke Classic mascot on wheels. Characters are seen eating McDonald's, Domino's Pizza, and Dunkin' Donuts.
- Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
- Early in the film, Secret Service officers are seen at a bar holding and drinking beers, and one character appears quite intoxicated.
