Stuart Little (1999)


Stuart Little (1999)

Rated: Rated PG for brief language

Length:  84 min.

Age: 5 and up.    Commonsense Media sez: 6 +

Scary Factor: Stuart in the washing machine as water is filling up; chased by cat several times; two major chases from alley cats in park

Intense: concept of getting mafia-like cats to rub him out (“scratch him out”); police station conversation about killing sprees and grisly crime photos; alley cats menace a lot but don’t get very close; alley cats dispatched in end by dumping them in pond (aren’t hurt, are seen climbing out and running off)

Bad Behaviour: George pushes another boy down, fists flying, etc. and doesn’t get in any trouble for it (the impression we’re left with is that it’s all right because the other boy was so unpleasant)

Language: swearing! “damn”s, “hell”; presumably included for sole purpose of winning a PG rating; also rude language, “shut up”, “moron”, “loser”, “speak to the butt”

Interests: mice, cats, New York, adoption, family

Next: read the book! More
