Where to Invade NextClose
Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Where to Invade Next is a Michael Moore documentary in which the famously controversial filmmaker "invades" various countries to "steal" good ideas for the United States -- specifically services geared to help ordinary citizens (more paid vacation, better food in schools, less homework, prisoner rehabilitation, sex education, etc.). There's occasional strong language (a few uses of "f--k," etc.), mentions of mass murder, and brief violent images: police beatings, prisoners being humiliated, riots, and protests. Viewers see brief, non-sexual male and female full-frontal nudity (in a health spa setting), and a man's naked bottom is shown. There are references to sex acts, sex education, STDs, teen pregnancy, and abortion, as well as brief images of people using drugs. Despite the sometimes-strong material, high school teens could get a lot out of this (although anyone not on board with Moore's lefty politics will want to beware).
