Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this British movie about twins separated at birth is marketed as family friendly but the language ("s--t" three times by a 9-year-old) and some intense scenes make it best for tweens and up. Children are kidnapped by some really creepy guys in an adoption racket and in a climatic scene one twin tries to save another and almost dies. There's also some bullying, beating with a switch (leaving Tom with two big welts on his back), and a few tense chases involving a rottweiler.
One kiss between adults and some comments from Paul's agent calling one woman "delicious." Paul keeps telling his agent he's painting a series of nudes.
Thomas visits his adoptive mother's grave and there's some talk about the mother who couldn't keep him. Tom is chased through his school and then beaten with a switch and two long marks remain on his back. Talk of orphans being drugged and kidnapped for an adoption racket; Tom sees one kid loaded into a car. The climatic action has one twin drugged and kidnapped and the other almost killed as a plane stowaway. A man brandishes a gun in the airport. Bullies and a rottweiler both chase and torment the twins. One bad guy head-butts and bloodies another.
"S--t" is said three times by a 9-year-old. Plus British slang "sod" and "bloody hell."
Bravery and teamwork save the day. And there's a very positive depiction of a widowed father raising an adopted son. But in one scene a character shoplifts, and in another the twins cheat on tests by trading places; both are seen as acceptable.

A mention that the twins' biological mother was an alcoholic.
