What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Flight of the Navigator is a 1986 science fiction movie in which a 12-year-old Miami boy from 1978 is abducted by an alien and ends up eight years into the future. There are some moments of iffy humor: The bratty little brother of the lead character calls the lead character's dog "retarded"; this same little brother, after a name-calling exchange between the two culminating in "skuzbucket" and "buttface," sticks out his rear end and at his brother while making a face. As a spaceship briefly hovers over Tokyo, all of the several Japanese people observing the spaceship immediately take out and start clicking on their cameras. A fat joke is made at the expense of an obese Florida gas station and gift shop owner. Occasional profanity: a teen says "s--t," adults say "s--t," "hell," and "bastard."
