What parents need to know

Parents need to know that in Home Alone 3 the bad guys get really banged up by a smart little kid. Traps and tricks at every turn result in painful pratfalls involving electrocution, car accidents, and explosions. Sensitive kids might be frightened by the fact that these bad guys carry real guns and are hunting down an 8-year-old boy who is sick at home alone. Some name calling, like "dumb broad" and potty talk, like "butt" and "winky."
  • Why is watching people get hurt funny? The bumps and bangs are played for humor here, but what would be the real consequences of these incidents?
  • Nobody believes Alex when he tells his family that he has seen crooks in the neighborhood. Could he have been more convincing? Or is being unheard part of being a kid?
