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.

Violence

Some flubber-coated golf and bowling balls bash villians, a confrontation with bad guys ends in a Flubber-fuelled fist-fight.

Language

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.

Consumerism

The Professor sells his flying car to Ford.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Characters refer to moderate drinking.
