Getting Even With Dad | 1994 | PG | - 1.2.1

Macaulay Culkin and Ted Danson star as an ex-convict and son with the son bent on redeeming the father and the father set on one last great heist.

SEX/NUDITY 1 - A brief scene where a woman is shown dancing suggestively in a bar: her midriff is shown but all else is clothed. One passionate kiss between Ted Danson and Glenne Headly.

VIOLENCE/GORE 2 - Most of the violence is played as slapstick: Danson and a cohort spray mace into police officers' eyes then hit them and tie and gag them. One of Danson's partners falls down the steps at a baseball game, gets hit and bonked on the head a few times, and then falls down the steps of a church.

LANGUAGE 1 - A couple of really mild profanities.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
