Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that the premise of Tommy and the Cool Mule involves parental loss. The main character, a teenage boy, has lost his father in military combat. His death is not shown in the film but is referred to and reflected on, and the loss of his income drives many of the family's choices. The film also features budding romance between teenagers and adults, and isn't afraid of a flatulence gag or four. There's also some name-calling and mischief-related injuries.
A man and woman briefly kiss and embrace. A teenage boy and girl kiss.
There are some mischief-related and slapstick injuries. In one scene, a woman slams a door in a man's face, hitting his head. In another, a game of paintball knocks loose a two by four in an old barn that slams down on a teenager's head.
There's no profanity, but plenty of clever teenage insults of the "punk," "bottomfeeder," "slug," and "lizard face" variety.
Tommy and the Cool Mule offers positive messages about doing one's duty, and that money does not make the person.
