Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that although this film is geared toward kids, it has less to do with its youthful main character, Dexter Riley, than the fictional cereal companies that are vying for a strength formula he created in science class. Watch out for the belittling portrayal of Asian-American culture.

Sexual Content

Dexter holds hands with his girlfriend.

Violence

Dexter throws mobster thugs around the laboratory and destroys the room and equipment.

Language

Characters call each other "idiot," "numbskull,""stupid."

Social Behavior

Dated, problematic stereotypes of Asian culture pop up here, especially when the villians go to Chinatown to get help in brainwashing a character. Though Aunt Harriet is the CEO of a cereal company, there are few women or girls with any lines in this dated film. Dexter lives in a house with all white guys, and all of his friends are white.

Consumerism

The premise behind the plot is to create a formula that can be added to a consumable food product to increase strength and stamina. Most of the adults in the film are portrayed as money oriented and ruthless.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

The strength potion taken by the characters could be termed a drug, since it creates physical changes after it's consumed. Cigar smoking by older male character.
