What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that there is a near constant barrage of sexual innuendo in this James Bond spoof. Parents may find the vulgar laughs and sight gags inappropriate for 'tweens, but 13-year-old and older kids will probably laugh all the way through it.
- Families can talk about media portrayals of women and how the young women in their family view themselves. How do they balance the pressure from society to be sexy with their own desires to be a well-rounded person? Do they like the way Vanessa Kensington handles herself in the face of Austin's constant come-ons? How would they handle themselves? Families may also want to discuss with their teenagers the two approaches to sex the film presents: free love 1960s-style vs. the more uptight 1990s. Which style would teens choose today, and what are the consequences of each? Families may want to discuss the importance of abstinence or safe sex, depending on their moral beliefs.
