Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that The Bracelet of Bordeaux is an unfocused, relatively worry-free movie with a confusing plot about dognappers. Some clumsy, mild cartoon violence (sneering, pushing ice cream into someone's face, chasing, tumbling over) with amateurish special effects (lights flash, colors change) provides what little conflict and the danger there is. The adults, with one exception, are either unreliable, self-involved, and incapable of adequate parenting or supervision, or unrelentlessly mean. A few insults ("crater face," "snot") are used; one very unlikable mother smokes cigarettes.

Sexual Content

Not applicable.


Some bumbling punk kids sneer and intimidate the heroines. The leader of the gang torments a little boy, throwing him around. Rough men, revealed to be members of organized crime, behave in a threatening manner to everyone. They tape the young punk leader's mouth and bully him. Kidnapped pets are thought to be in peril, yet no harm comes to any of them and they are not subjected to abuse. Some chasing, falling, growling. The girls wander into a insect-infested area and are swarmed.


Some name-calling and insults (i.e. "crater face," "snot," "are you afraid of girls?").

Social Behavior

Power should be used for good rather than to do harm -- a great message, but it isn't delivered effectively.


Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

In one scene a buffoonish mother smokes, puffing madly.
