What parents need to know
Parents need to know that WarGames is a suspense-filled drama that will appeal to older kids, teens, and grownups. While there's no violent action and the film delivers a sound message, it's a race against time -- nuclear weapons are about to be launched. Young heroes face off against the FBI and the military; war and peace hang in the balance. There's frequent swearing and use of some obscenities, as well as product placement throughout.
