What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this movie came out before the PG-13 rating, so it earned a PG rating. However, if this movie were released today, it would almost certainly be rated PG-13. There is some strong language (including one f-bomb) and some sexual situations (including a man fondling a woman's breast). There's also some drinking, smoking, and mild violence. A child forced to grow up too quickly is exposed to corporate life, sex, and other adult matters.
