Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that No Place Like Home -- a predictable story about an alien discovered by a teen sister and brother -- has some name-calling between siblings. Also, a man makes a homophobic insinuation at the expense of a female law enforcement official. Aside from this, have fun keeping track of all the 1980s film and television stars packed into this otherwise unremarkable movie.
