Girl teams with lively alien in uninspired sequel.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that while this movie isn't particularly scary or violent for young children, there are some scenes that may disturb the youngest set, particularly toward the end, when evil characters nearly cut Stich in two and threaten to teleport Hawaiian earth girl Lilo to another realm. There is also a scene when Lilo learns that a group of girls have excluded her from a camp-out, calling her a "liar" and Lilo and Stitch "total freaks." On the other hand, the film emphasizes the "one of a kind" traits that make each character unique and Lilo waxes eloquently about her "family," even when its members may come from another planet!

  • Families can talk about whether people who are not related to each other can still be close, and show loyalty toward one another. How would they handle being teased by children who would only want to associate with people who looked or acted like them?
