What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Dear Mr. Watterson is a documentary about the creator of the great "Calvin and Hobbes" comic strip, and while there's almost no objectionable content, kids will likely be bored by the talking head format. Be prepared for one use of the word "bulls--t," but other than that, the movie includes no sex or violence. It does have some very strong messages about art versus commerce, what it means to "sell out," and what it means to raise the bar on your particular profession. Fans of "Calvin and Hobbes" -- especially adults -- will enjoy this.
