Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this sweet movie where kids get to play the sleuths to save a girl from living with her mean stepmother is a perfect tween slumber party movie. Violence is limited to stereotyped meanie adults getting pelted with paint balls and a girl getting her dog taken from her. Diverse kids use their various talents (and numerous cell phone minutes) to solve their case.

Sexual Content

Not applicable.

Violence

Two characters have deceased parents, though there are no details. Anna is taken from her grandmother forcibly in a dream and her step-mom gives her dog to a mean dog catcher. The dog catcher makes a throat-slitting motion to tell a boy what will happen to his dog if he's caught without a leash. Kids are chased by adults through a house while mildly threatened and the adults are pelted with paint balls.

Language

The dog catcher is always yelling "shut up!" to the dogs.

Social Behavior

Ingenuity and perseverance are big here. Kids combine various talents -- brains, paintball skills, powers of persuasion -- to solve a case.

Consumerism

Kids are constantly on their cell phones but no brands are visible.
