Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this made-for-TV Disney movie about monsters and humans at a high school is the third of a trilogy that centers around a family of witches. Tweens won't be scared off by the somewhat crude special effects, but younger kids might. One scene has monsters running amok when a Halloween haunted house attraction actually turns into one.
- Sexual Content
- Some flirtation, and an almost-kiss, but that's it.
- Some yelling and benign run-ins among teens.
- "Loser" and "stupid" is as aggressive as it gets.
- Social Behavior
- The overall message is pretty sweet -- that we're more alike than different, and should all get along if we try. But the film pokes fun at Canadians with jokes that imply their naivete.
- Not too many branding messages, though the film is a Disney production and comes with the attendant marketing power of the studio.
