The Last MimzyClose
Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that despite its whimsical title, this fantasy adventure incorporates many sci-fi elements that may frighten sensitive children. It's unclear whether the mysterious toys the children find are alien, from the past or future, good or evil. Mimzy (a talking stuffed rabbit) speaks in a buzzing whisper that only Emma can hear, and the toy's many close-ups border on the menacing: Just what does the white rabbit want? FBI agents bust in the family's door and take everyone into custody under the laws of the Patriot Act. The young protagonists speak telepathically with each other and the Mimzy. Ultimately it's a harmless fantasy, but some scenes featuring the strange devices can be creepy, even for adults.
- Sexual Content
- Mom and dad kiss hello and goodbye. Larry is shown getting out of bed in a T-shirt and briefs; he and his fiancee Naomi kiss, and then she makes an innuendo-filled comment: "Is this what we're doing now?"
- Some disturbing images: FBI agents storm into the Wilder home and take the entire family into custody; Emma "atomizes" her hand and face and then shakes. Mimzy whispers in an eerie buzz, and some close-ups of the stuffed animal and the other mysterious toys are downright creepy. Emma is in danger during an important scene.
- Minor words: Noah says "sucks" several times.
- Social Behavior
- Parents learn that if their children exhibit odd, telekinetic behavior, it's best not to delay seeking professional help.
