Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in Chestnut...

In this predictable story of orphans with puppy love, the plot revolves around the silly antics of keeping a dog a secret. Some humor is derived from efforts to and discussions about potty training a dog. A child narrowly escapes being hit by a fast moving vehicle. Thieves break into various homes and steal personal belongings. They are portrayed in a comical fashion, except for a scene where they threaten a dog with a letter opener. The animal is injured and some blood is shown. Slapstick humor includes flying food, a woman hanging from a ceiling fan and some pratfalls. Alcohol is drunk at celebrations.
