Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Maggie -- which stars Arnold Schwarzenegger -- is a zombie drama with an unusual (and touching) view of life and death. Adventurous teens may appreciate the movie's attempts at something different, but more traditional, die-hard zombie fans may find it slow and boring. Expect brief but very disturbing zombie violence/scares, including infected skin and creepy-crawlies, as well as dripping blood. A character breaks a finger and then chops it off. Zombies (including a child zombie) are killed, and a rifle is shown. There's some fighting, and suicide is an issue. Teens kiss in one scene, and there's a brief reference to teens getting into their dad's beer. Language is mild; just "crap" and "ass."

"Crap" and "ass."
Raises interesting questions about life, death, and love. What's most important in life? What do we cling to while we're here? How is it that death is so much harder for those left behind?
