Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that The Mouse and the Motorcycle is a faithful adaptation of the popular children's novel by Beverly Cleary, blending live actors in the human roles with realistic looking puppet animation to bring the mice to life. Ralph, the mouse, is a mischievous scamp looking for some fun, and his new human friend Keith has just the thing: a toy motorcycle that's perfectly suited for a small rodent. The film is tailored for a young audience, with no swearing, drinking, or anything else that might alarm parents.

Sexual Content


Mice discuss the grim fates of some of their relatives at the hands of rodent-hating humans and predators such as cats and owls, and one mouse barely escapes such an unpleasant end as he undertakes a dangerous rescue mission.

Social Behavior

Parents will want what's best for their kids, but they may not always understand exactly what that is. That's why it's important for young people to be able to cultivate a sense of imagination and adventure, and to be open to new experiences that their parents may not completely endorse -- like making friends with a motorcycle-loving mouse.


The film is based on a popular title by the beloved children's author Beverly Cleary.
