From the critics

ReadingintheCorner thinks this title is suitable for 14 years and over
Coarse Language: There is quite a bit of coarse language but it isn't used against anyone. It is simply stated...it makes sense in context nevertheless be prepared as it comes up every once in a while.
Coarse Language: Lionel encourages Berty to swear, let the anger out and especially at one point there is ALOT of swearing. Sometimes Berty will be practicing reading and break out in the F word or the S word, it's kinda weird and semi-desterbing but it's still a good movie.
