Jeremy Fink and the Meaning of LifeClose
Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Jeremy Fink and the Meaning of Life is a lighthearted film for young people about a 12-year-old who's looking for answers to some pretty big questions. There are some references to the tragic death of the main character's father (which happened before the movie starts). But overall the story is uplifting and simple, great for kids and tweens, and has only mild language and a little bickering.
- Sexual Content
- A boy's best friend is a girl, though he denies that there's any kind of attraction between them.
- Tweens bicker. The main character's father died before the story starts.
- Some derogatory speech between tweens, including "shut up," "jerk," and "dork."
- Social Behavior
- Jeremy learns that life is all about choices. In some cases, the right decision is obvious, and in others, it's not at all clear. Since some aspects of life are random and can't be controlled, he realizes that it's important to "eat dessert first" while still thinking carefully about the impact of the things that are in your control. Other life lessons include: Live in the moment, money can't buy happiness, and believe in yourself.
