What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that kids will see spaceships blown up and alien spiders blasted with ray guns. Dr. Smith, who has been turned into a human/spider creature, is attacked by his own offspring. There is also moderate profanity, and sexual innuendo between two characters. Will Robinson, whose ingenuity in problem solving and extensive science knowledge frequently gets the family out of danger, may inspire an interest in computers and robotics.
- Families can talk about movie remakes and nostalagia. Why make a movie that essentially reproduces a TV show most popular when many of today's parents were kids? Do you think it's harder or easier than creating new characters, new themes, new stories? Is there an element of safety in remaking a once-popular movie or TV series?
