What Parents Need to Know

logo for common sense media

Parents need to know that Dave is a charming political comedy about a regular guy (Kevin Kline) who ends up impersonating the president of the United States when the latter experiences an unexpected (and scandalous) health crisis. Dave isn't perfect -- he willingly participates in the deception at the heart of the movie and does a few other iffy things along the way -- but his big heart shines through, and he ends up improving the lives of his fellow Americans while he's "in office." Some of the movie's political satire and power struggles might go over younger kids' head, especially since politics have changed somewhat since the film was made. But it has strong themes of compassion and integrity, as well as some big laughs and a sweet romance between the jaded first lady (Sigourney Weaver) and the idealistic Dave. Expect some swearing throughout (including "s--t" and one use of "f--k") and some partial nudity. Dave's naked chest and backside are shown in the shower, and a couple has sex under the covers, but nothing sensitive is shown.
