Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this movie about tween romance shows a little kissing and some wrestling around on the floor. The kids disobey their parents, leave their neighborhood, and take the subway alone. There's some mild peril when they encounter bullies. Gabe deals with his parents getting a divorce. He also speeds across the street on his scooter without looking.

Sexual Content

Young Adam and Leslie kiss, and again later, the adult versions of them kiss. Gabe and Rosemary sit on a subway train where a couple is making out next to them. Gabe kisses Rosemary once on the lips, and replays it in his head many times. The pair wrestles a little on the floor.


A lot of karate-related kicking, punching, and tripping. Gabe falls off his scooter but isn't hurt. A bully throws a ball hard during dodgeball and hurts some kids, but not seriously. Rosemary and Adam beat up the bully using karate. Gabe breaks his hand trying to break a board in karate.


Two uses of the word "hell."

Social Behavior

Gabe's friend talks about shoplifting candy. Gabe and Rosemary lie to their parents and leave their neighborhood on the subway alone. There's a lot of dangerous speeding across the street on Gabe's scooter. But the overall message is to follow your feelings and be honest about them.
