Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this movie opens on a family of seven children who take pride in harassing and scaring nannies hired by their father. The kids are abusive in Home Alone-ish ways, pulling violent and sometimes disgusting pranks on adults who are supposed to look after them. Their efforts to thwart their father's marriage to a tarty (and cleavage-revealing) widow include the use of reptiles, insects, and slimy substances. The instructive nanny looks like a traditional witch, arrives on a stormy night, and uses a magical cane. Some kids may be disturbed by the death of the children's mother (not shown). The father works in a mortuary, and we see shots of dead bodies.
Mostly chaste romance develops between father and servant girl; his gaudy fiancee wears tight, bright dresses, shows cleavage, and makes mildish, crude sexual suggestions.
Cartoonish splatty hijinks, kids wreak havoc in the household, adults cry out and fall down. Shots of dead bodies in a mortuary.
Mild and infrequent language ("Bleedin' hell!").
Naughty children learn to behave, care for one another, and respect adults.
