Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this uplifting movie about a teen activist who started "the world's largest environmental network of young people" will be of interest to activist tweens and up. Except for some language -- mostly "hell" and "friggin" -- and a car getting run off the road, the content is pretty mild. One long scene plays out like a big ad for the band The Trews as the band plays a song and then invites Simon on stage to talk about saving the spirit bear's habitat.
- Sexual Content
- One kiss and some mild innuendo.
- A bear almost attacks Simon and then two bears fight each other. Simon is repeatedly rear-ended and then run off the road while driving, suffering a broken leg. Simon gets some threatening phone calls and emails.
- "Hell" and "friggin" are said the most with a few emails to Simon shown that say "burn in hell." "S--t" may have been said once but it's barely audible; plus "bloody," "piss off," "hard ass," "a-hole," and "screwed you over."
- Social Behavior
- The strong message that even one voice can have the power to change the world if it's persistent and passionate enough. However there are some stereotypes here that stand out: the loggers are cruel and threatening -- even violent -- and other activists are called "freaks" who no one will listen to for dressing like hippies and protesting with signs on government property.
- Practically an ad for the band The Trews. Simon gets tickets and is invited on stage to speak.
