Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this film features some immature kid behavior: sneaking into a movie theater, breaking into an abandoned house, and stealing baseball equipment. But the larger lesson that Tommy learns is that he doesn't have to always be bigger and better, and that he doesn't have to be a jerk to be successful. Expect a little bit of mild language ("fat ass," etc.).
- Sexual Content
- Tommy kisses his wife.
- Tommy gets hit in the face with a baseball twice. Tommy tries to hit some firework technicians with the baseballs he hits. Young Tommy threatens to fight the town bully.
- Mild language, including "nuts," "fat ass" and "buttface."
- Social Behavior
- At the beginning of the film, Tommy repeatedly sells out the people and things he loves to make himself look better. But in the end, he learns that he can be just as successful doing good things and listening to his heart. The kids do some irresponsible stuff (breaking into an abandonded house, stealing baseball equipment). An umpire tries to perform mouth-to-mouth resuscitation on young Tommy, and the group freaks out at the prospect of two men's lips touching.
- The Fox Sports Channel insignia appears in the bottom-right corner of the screen at the beginning of the film. Major League Baseball teams are prominently featured. Tommy and his mom go to see the film Young Einstein.
