Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that the jokes in this movie are pretty vulgar for a G rating. T.J. uses the school public address system to make an announcement, pretending to be the principal, and talking about how he scratches his "big, saggy butt" once an hour. T.J.'s parents say they are going to take his temperature with a baby thermometer and some Vaseline (eliciting a few uncomfortable squeals from the audience). T.J. reads aloud from his sister's diary, including dramatic descriptions of teenage romance.

Sexual Content

Mild references to teen and adult romance.


Comic peril -- the kids fight the bad guys with water balloons and silly string.
