Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that in Home Alone 3 the bad guys get really banged up by a smart little kid. Traps and tricks at every turn result in painful pratfalls involving electrocution, car accidents, and explosions. Sensitive kids might be frightened by the fact that these bad guys carry real guns and are hunting down an 8-year-old boy who is sick at home alone. Some name calling, like "dumb broad" and potty talk, like "butt" and "winky."
Older brother has posters of women in bikinis. One poster shows most of a breast exposed, and is featured in a prank.
Just what you'd expect from the Home Alone franchise: lots of slapstick violence at the expense of the bad guys. There are guns -- real and toy -- that are used to threaten people. Electrocution, slapping, heavy objects crashing on people, a guy gets hit by a car, explosions. But everyone comes out alive, if black and blue. No blood.
Marginal language and name calling: "butt," "buttock," "damn," "hell," "dumb broad," and "winky."
