The Shaggy D.A.Close
Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that there's some 1970s-era smoking and beer drinking in a bar. There's also some mild peril. The bad guys are pretty crooked, stealing and cheating to keep control of the local government. Actually, more of this comedy is concerned with the adult world than a kid's world. In fact, there's only one kid in the whole movie! Kids will like the slapstick and dog moments, though.
- The crooks are a bit seedy. One of them uses a tranquilizer gun on the dog. The Daniels' neighbor has a shotgun, which he uses to shoot at trespassers. The dog punches a crook. Scary ladder climbing and walking on a high plank.
- Social Behavior
- This movie goes to show that even important dads can have their shaggy moments. The gangsters who are affiliated with the crooked current D.A. get their comeuppance.
- Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
- '70s era cigarette-smoking by gangsters and people in a bar. Adults drink beer in a bar.
- Age appropriate
- Not an issue
- Depends on your kid and your family
- Not appropriate for kids of the age most likely to want to see it
