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.

Sexual Content

An alien who looks like a man in his early 20s is shown naked behind a bush covering his private parts. A sister accuses her brother of having a "dirty magazine" under his mattress.


Early in the film a rabbit is run over by a jeep. A boy crashes into a rock and hurts his head.


"Hell." One character calls another a "pervert." A brother tells his sister to "bite me."

Social Behavior

In the words of the film's title, there is "No place like home."
