SEX/NUDITY 1 - A young boy reports to the school nurse, having weak knees and a pounding heart, describing his condition to a friend as "severe inadequacy" with girls; he says pretty faces make him nervous. A boy is afraid to ring a little girl's doorbell and hides behind bushes or runs away in several scenes.
 In elementary school, a girl asks a boy, "Are you trying to hold my hand? You sly dog!" when he is reaching for his test paper. A girl chooses a boy for a school project partner and says, "I do! I mean, I will." A girl calls a boy "My sweet baboo" a few times and hearts appear in the air around her face; brown hearts appear around a grimy boy's face. A girl teases her brother by saying, "Ohhh, you're in love!" and she later tells him a phone call for him is from his girlfriend, but it is not. A boy looks at a new neighbor girl and says, "Wow! She's pretty!" A girl draws a slip of paper for a book report partner from a bowl and says, "No boys! No boys!"; another girl rejects each slip of paper until she draws a boy's name and after drawing a girl's name, a boy asks, "How will I support her? How will I afford a mortgage?"
 A girl receives a lick in the face from a dog twice; the first time, she shouts, "I've been kissed by a dog! Get the disinfectant! Get the iodine!" and the second time, she shouts, "I've got dog germs!"
 A beagle falls in love at first sight with a female poodle and hearts appear in the air; the female dog blows a heart made from a cloud to him.

VIOLENCE/GORE 1 - A girl knocks soup cans off tree stumps and a smaller girl's head with a puck and a hockey stick. A dog throws a portable typewriter and hits a girl in the head as "BONK!" appears in the air (the girl does not appear hurt). A girl breaks her alarm clock with a hockey stick one morning.
 A boy with a kite falls down and slides across a frozen pond, taking a hockey goal net with him and knocking down a few children, who are unhurt. A boy pitches a snowball at a snowman and it speeds back at him, knocking him down; his dog pretends to be a ball club manager and hops up and down, cursing in nonsense squeaks.
 A girl grabs a male classmate by the shirt and shakes him hard in two scenes. A bird and a dog argue about the dog's writing, using squeaky noises. A girl shouts at her brother to get up.
 A girl stands on a smaller girl's head and hurts her by pulling her hair with her shoes (the small girl complains) and a boy walks up to them, accidentally knocking down a fence and upsetting moving boxes (the children run away).
 A dog pushes a bird down between keys on the typewriter. A small bird falls when a glob of snow hits it (no injury). A dog catches his finger in notebook rings and squeaks nonsense syllables. A dog catches his finger in a typewriter keyboard and shouts nonsense syllables, then rolls a little bird up in the carriage; the bird comes out and kicks him in the nose. A boy blows dust into the dog's eyes, making it cough.
 A dog and a boy practice magic tricks for a talent show and the boy nearly pokes the dog with cardboard swords in one trick. During a talent show, a girl wearing a green karate belt walks off a stage and a smaller girl limps and staggers off stage with a broken board in her hand; another girl's toy hobbyhorse breaks and the audience laughs, making her cry and she twirls a lariat, sits on a dog's back, and chases her older brother, who disguised himself as a spotted steer, then hog-ties him and hangs him from the ceiling on stage. A dog and a boy have a staring contest and the dog wins with bloodshot eyes and the boy's eyes water. A girl snores in a classroom and in a school auditorium. A bird snores in a nest. A dog snores loudly in a bed in a house.
 A boy falls while dancing in a gym and sets off the school sprinkler system causing all of the other children run outside. A boy removes his squeaky shoes in a library, sliding across a floor in his socks accidentally. A boy climbing a ladder knocks over a whole wall of bookshelves, but no one is hurt; he selects a book as big as his body and puts it on a sled. He loses control of it, slides down a flight of concrete steps, down a hill, across a frozen pond, and through a neighbor's house. A boy writes a book report and his ink pen explodes all over the paper and his hands. A boy's paper catches in the wind and a flying toy airplane demolishes the report, making confetti. A boy kicks a self-improvement book to a spot under his bed. A boy remembers flying a kite and we see him hanging upside down by a kite string in the rain. A boy at a party slips on some spilled punch.
 A unit of birds line up their airplanes, but the planes up-tip on their noses on the ground and fall over; the birds gather tools and stampede over the lead bird and a hammer hits him on the head (no injuries) and one of the birds opens the roof and repairs a red doghouse that services as an airplane for the dog; the bird takes his screwdriver and flies to a plane, where he dislodges all of the rudders and the plane falls off-screen; a plane falls when a poodle throws a red chair at it through an open window of a dirigible and a doghouse backfires twice, covering the beagle pilot once in soot and then in oil and the doghouse crashes and falls to pieces, but the dog is fine; birds fly a plane that is falling apart, landing in a wedding cake inside a bakery, unharmed. A dog imagines himself flying his doghouse and chasing a plane in France during a rainstorm, gliding under a bridge and skimming a river and in real time, he falls into his food dish. A dog imagines a plane hitting another plane and a female poodle parachuting out of it. A dog imagines that he misses hitting a mountain with his plane at the last second. A dog imagines walking through snow, rain, lightning, a hailstorm, and a desert, and ends up crying over a picture of a pink poodle. In end credits, a toy plane runs out of fuel and falls into a pond.
 At a carnival, a baseball hits a boy in the shoulder at a game booth and he is fine; he spits out a fountain of water as he falls past a water game booth; he becomes dizzy and stumbles in a house of mirrors and when he leaves there, the long kite string of a kite tangles in his legs and carries him along a path to a bus, where the kite falls onto a girl's foot (no damage).
 A boy learning to dance says that his old self would still be lying in bed with a stomachache; he dances with a mop, but his dog takes the mop and breaks it over its knee. A toy plane flies around a classroom and splatters a little girl with paints. A toy plane splashes a large amount of root beer foam into a beagle's face in a restaurant.

A CAVEAT: We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and some of our early standards were not as stringent as they are now. We therefore need to revisit many older reviews, especially those written prior to 1998 or so; please keep this in mind if you're consulting a review from that period. While we plan to revisit and correct older reviews our resources are limited and it is a slow, time-consuming process.

INAPPROPRIATE ADS? We have little control over ads since we belong to ad agencies that serve ads automatically; a standing order should prevent provocative ads, but inappropriate ads do sneak in.
