Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that, like The Incredibles, this movie is too violent and intense for the youngest viewers. There's gunfire, explosions, widespread destruction, crowds panicking, and some deaths -- including one in which a good guy picks up a gun and accidentally shoots a bad guy, with no real consequences. Much of this is played for laughs, but it could be quite scary for young kids. One of the good guys is briefly presumed dead, which could also be upsetting. On the other hand, language is mild ("jerk," "stupid," etc.), and sexuality is mostly just flirting and discussing love/marriage, though there's one scene in which a couple is about to make out in a parked car. The movie is being released in both 2-D and 3-D versions; the 3-D one could be scarier for kids due to the finer line between fantasy and reality.

Sexual Content

A couple is in a parked car about to make out when an alien ship interrupts them. The general makes a gesture referring to Susan's breasts (but it will probably go over kids' head). BOB flirts with a Jell-o mold.

Violence

Lots of gunfire and big explosions, including some alien deaths (one via accidental ray-gun shooting). A "good guy" character is attacked and thought to be dead. The alien robot shoots at and nearly destroys the Golden Gate Bridge, along with everyone on it; the monsters' fight against him is fairly intense. Buildings are crushed. The president instructs the military to "do something violent" when his negotiations with the alien robot fail.

Language

Some insults and mild language like "jerk," "stupid," "boobies," "jerk," and "idiot." One exclamation of "Sweet Lord!" during a chaotic moment and an "oh my God" (as well as one use of "OMG!").

Social Behavior

Teamwork and determination save the day here, but there's also a disrespect of authority figures who are shown as stupid and thoughtless.
