Ok, so I checked this out at my local library and we are going to watch it tonight. The question is, is it appropriate for my grade school daughter to watch? The rating is PG but there are some PG movies I'd let my daughter watch and some I won't. What's the worst kind of stuff that happens in this movie?

//Edited to add://

Found this quote on IMDB:

Bratty kid: [looking through telescope at a girl getting undressed in window] If I'm lucky, I may get a view of Venus' two moons.
Adam: [pointing at the sky in the other direction] Hey, Einstein - isn't Venus over there?

Is there nudity? It's a definite no if there's nudity!

Type in the name of the movie, and it'll tell you everything you need to know about language, sex, etc. A great site.

I checked but it didn't come up. The movie is probably too old. Oh well, I guess we will start the movie and turn it off if it starts looking iffy. Thanks. :)

The rating is PG...

Is there nudity?

I'd be pretty surprised if there was any nudity in a movie rated as PG! I can't remember any nudity in the movie when I saw it, but I probably last saw that movie 20 years ago, so it's not like I have a photographic memory of the movie.

But really? Has there ever been a PG movie with any sort of nudity at all? Seems like even a statue of David in the background would have disqualified it as PG (which I think is stupid, but that's another story....)

I asked if there was nudity but I guess I should have asked how much you got to see because the reference clearly stated that the kid was watching someone get undressed. I was surprised when I read that because I didn't think you'd be able to see something like that in a PG movie which is why I asked. I don't remember what was considered PG in the 80s and whether a bare backside would have been "ok." Turns out, all you ever saw her take off was her cardigan sweater, but my finger was poised on the stop button on the remote.

There were some iffy parts in the movie, like when the clue was "Look between the giant melons" and they meant the busty waitress with the lowcut uniform. Luckily, most of the iffy parts went right over dd's head.

No, no nudity - just the suggestion of, and comment about.
