Alexander and the Terrible Horrible no Good

New Posters for Alexander and

This movie has good general themes (family, being supportive, appreciating the good things even in a bad day), but as other parents mentioned, there are some things that are just downright inappropriate for kids. There were several scenes that I was quite uncomfortable with my kids watching - all the "boob" and "penis" talk was just unnecessary and seemed gratuitous, like they were just going for lowest-common-denominator laughs from 9-year-old boys. The worst part, for us, was when a schoolmate used an app on his phone to put the main character's head on a buxom, scantily-dressed woman (in lingerie, for crying out loud! In a KIDS' movie!) and email it to the whole school. That was completely out of place and inappropriate, and the whole "getting picked on" thing could have easily been communicated without making a sexual thing of it and putting those kinds of pictures in my kids' heads. There were also the male strippers at the end, which was vague enough to go over the kids' heads, thankfully, but it's just another thing that didn't need to be in this "family-friendly" movie. Sigh. I'm afraid that this first recipient of the "Common Sense Seal" has totally undermined my trust in Common Sense Media. If the review had mentioned the sexual content, we could have protected our kids from those parts (if we saw the movie at all).
