Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this inspiring true story about a promising young surfer who was attacked by a shark could give tween and teen viewers lots to think about, from trying to figure out their purpose in life (even at a young age) to trying to come to terms with adversity. With the exception of the attack itself -- which, although quick, unfolds in a gory, violent manner -- the movie is squeaky-clean, with no iffy language, sex, or alcohol or drug content. And the main character is an extremely positive role model, responding to tragedy with grace and kindness instead of bitterness.

Sexual Content

Flirting, girls in bikinis.

Violence

A shark attacks a young surfer. It happens quickly but ferociously, with lots of blood and some gore.

Language

"Jerk" and "oh my God."

Social Behavior

The movie's strongly positive message is that you can get over the worst of tragedies with perspective, self-determination, and the support of friends and family.

Consumerism

Brand names and logos for surfing sponsors, including Rip Curl and Red Bull. Spam.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
