Owen says: Jun. 14, 2014

One of the most family friendly movies that I have ever seen.  The worst “slur” that they use is white.  The coarse language refers to words that aren’t inappropriate, and ones that anyone over the age of 6 has used.  Also, the owners of the food truck live in Colorado, so, there is obviously going to be a pot scene.
