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.

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