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

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.
