Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this film offers nothing in the way of genuine family fun. Young kids may enjoy the action, car chases, and explosions, but they aren't worth it for the miserable messages about consumerism and buying your child's love.

Sexual Content

Some brief kissing between parents. Ted is constantly hitting on Liz. Some unwitting double entendre by Jamie.


Lots of punching, kicking, threats, and one explosion. While pervasive, the violence is comic, and no one actually gets hurt.


Liz utters "damn" once, but other than that, it's mostly clean.

Social Behavior

Harold yells at his son and neglects him but eventually redeems himself by dressing up like a superhero and procuring the prized holiday gift. Jamie learns that the gift is less important than the love of his father, but only after parents and kids obsess over getting the gift.


Gumby, the Cat in the Hat, and Crayola are all prominently displayed during a holiday parade. Two dads go to extremes for a toy.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Harold and Myron sneak liquor into their coffee after a long day of toy hunting. In a fantasy sequence, Jamie drinks liquor from the bottle.
