Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this movie is not for those with weak stomachs -- it has lots of theatrical (though mercifully camouflaged) vomiting and dares to eat disgusting food combinations. Male characters anchor the action while two appealing girl actors are reduced to decorative sidekicks. A grandma, dad, and son make up the main family unit, and a multicultural group of friends sticks together.
- Sexual Content
- Teen flirting and one kiss.
- Mild bullying and intimidation; repeated food fights, including one battle royal.
- Not applicable
- Social Behavior
- A student tries to win popularity through stunts like chugging a gallon of milk and doing wild magic tricks. A female student is talked out of running for class president so that two boys can compete, and doesn't seem to see this as a letdown. An unsupervised (though apparently dry) teen party is shown. The main character learns hard lessons about embracing the gift that makes him unique.
- The cast is studded with Disney Channel stars.
