Why Is Hoot Rated PG?


This film is designed for young audiences, and has low levels of sexual and language content (a low cut dress, a girl who sleeps in a boy’s bedroom—separately from the boy, as well as a mild expletive and one term of deity). Violence includes situations of vandalism such as letting the air out of vehicle tires, pulling up survey stakes, and defacing a police car. There are also a couple portrayals of bullying antics, the depiction of a dog bite wound, and two occasions when a boy is accidentally hit in the head with a golf ball. As part of the young characters’ efforts to have a guilty man arrested, they tie him up in his office.
