Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that while this entertaining made-for-TV movie portrays a loving family and good values -- such as embracing your heritage -- it also has some violence in the form of martial arts fighting against an evil spirit. Aside from the Asian family at the center of the movie, there are no other minority lead characters. Wendy herself is a strong, relatable female lead.
- Sexual Content
- Romantic feelings develop between two lead characters, but it's all very innocent.
- Many fight scenes involving martial arts as Wendy battles an ancient evil spirit.
- Very mild: "idiot" and "jerk."
- Social Behavior
- Teen characters are well-behaved and respectful of their parents, and the overall message -- that cultural heritage is important -- is a good one. Wendy is Asian and a strong female character.
