Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this movie offers more of the tween-friendly content that families have come to expect from Wizards of Waverly Place. Teenage Alex gives her parents and siblings fits with her rebellious -- and often disrespectful ¿ behavior (she talks back, sneaks out of the house, etc.), but she learns important lessons about family ties and self-confidence when she's forced to team up with her brother to save her family. There's no cause for concern in giving tweens the go-ahead on this feel-good movie.
