Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this Nickelodeon-produced comedy about an orphaned brother and sister (played by tween faves Emma Roberts and Jake T. Austin) who set up a secret refuge for stray dogs is targeted squarely at the family market. Because the main characters are orphans living in foster care, there are some references to dead parents, but it doesn't get too emotional. And with no swearing or consumerism and only mild flirting (though there are a couple of kisses), the movie is age-appropriate for grade-schoolers while still appealing to tweens.

Sexual Content

Teenagers flirt, and one couple kisses, while another girl gives a boy a quick smooch. A teenage boy calls two characters "fine" and "hot."

Violence

Slapsticky violence like characters falling, stepping on poop and pee, etc. Also references to dead parents and "awful" foster care.

Language

Very mild -- "stupid."

Social Behavior

Overall, despite a bit of iffy behavior on the part of the main characters, the film sends the message that young people can make a difference in their communities.
