Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this movie has commercial tie-ins, non-stop cartoon violence, and possible bad role models for children. Kids may want to imitate the evil RoboGadget, which scares a little boy by demanding money and threatening him with knives and other weapons. RoboGadget also burns down the town after yelling, "I'm going to kick some butt!"
- Sexual Content
- No sex per se, but there does seem to be an undue emphasis on leering innuendoes.
- There are lots of battles between the good and evil Gadget, featuring limbs being ripped out and a disembodied talking head.
- Not applicable
- Social Behavior
- One race-related joke. An Asian man, running from RoboGadget, screams "This is why I left Tokyo!" Conversely, Penny, Gadget's young neice, is a great role model for little girls.
- The movie boasts blatant commercial plugs for Disney as well as Coca-Cola, Skittles, and M&Ms candy.
