Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this movie has mild nudity (Professor Brainard stumbles into a life-drawing class), mild profanity (almost inaudible), a sad scene where a beloved robot "dies" and dubious ethics -- the film never confront issues of cheating and solving problems with violence.
- Sexual Content
- Semi-nudity when the Professor accidentally enters a life-drawing class. Relationship issues.
- Some flubber-coated golf and bowling balls bash villians, a confrontation with bad guys ends in a Flubber-fuelled fist-fight.
- Mild profanity. Two characters swear (Damn and Hell) very quietly. It is difficult to understand what they are saying.
- Social Behavior
- Stereotypes play a large role, the absent-minded Professor being the hero. There is very little diversity in the cast, no discussion of tolerance.
- The Professor sells his flying car to Ford.
- Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
- Characters refer to moderate drinking.
- Age appropriate
- Not an issue
- Depends on your kid and your family
- Not appropriate for kids of the age most likely to want to see it
