Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Suburban Commando is a '90s movie starring Hulk Hogan. The violence is mostly slapstick and played for comedy, although the slimy and lizard-like alien villain may frighten small children. Spaceships and space weapons take a back seat to the Hulk's brawn in many funny physical confrontations. Much of the humor and violence derive from his unfamiliarity with earthly ways. General Suitor's hand is cut off, and a scary lizard-like one grows back. His life threatened, Charlie grabs Suitor's testicles, which triggers the bad guy to shed human form and appear as his slimy eight-foot lizard self. Expect some innuendo and drinking; profanity includes "ass," "Christ," and "crap."

Sexual Content

Charlie's wife appears in wig, black lingerie, silk robe after he's had a hard day; he says he's "not in the mood." A secretary presses herself up against Shep while describing how she enjoys watching football's "big burly boys beating the crap out of each other."

Violence

Using superhuman strength and wiles, Shep shoots, punches, crunches, and tosses around bad guys. The mayhem is mostly played for comic effect, much of it shot to echo Three Stooges stunts with rubber hammers and the like. General Suitor's hand is cut off, and a scary lizard-like one grows back. His life threatened, Charlie grabs Suitor's testicles, which triggers the bad guy to shed human form and appear as his slimy eight-foot lizard self. Charlie mock-drag races with his fellow commuters every morning. Shep falls while trying to skateboard. Mechanics next door block Charlie's driveway and threaten him. A purse snatcher is caught, and seeming rapists (one says, "She's mine first") are thwarted. Shep upends the sports car of two teenagers who drive recklessly through the suburban neighborhood.

Language

"Shut up," "Christ," "smart-ass," "piss ass," and "crap."
