MPAA Rated PG for mild language and thematic elements, including a child's exposure to domestic abuse

Sex & Nudity

  • The girls briefly discuss doing "it" and seeing boys naked.

Violence & Gore

  • A character is beat up and left unconscious. We don't see the fight, but we see the woman in her house later.


  • Some mild language, but not much.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Jodie's mother is described as a "boozer" by a teenage girl, and she has a reputation around town for being an alcoholic.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Beth gets trapped in the mountain midway through the movie, with a big rock crushing her leg. She nearly drowns while Jodie runs for help, but she ends up being okay. She is just hospitalized briefly for hypothermia and a broken arm.
  • Jodie faints in the middle of the road in one scene after walking several miles. A police officer revives her with smelling salts, and she ends up being okay.
  • Beth and Jodie reach for something that they think is gold, but it ends up being glow worms. This might make some audiences squeamish.
  • There are some chase scenes and suspenseful moments in the final third of the movie, while Beth and Jodie are lurking around inside Bear Mountain. For example, there is a huge gaping hole that they jump over to get to the other side.


The Parents Guide items below may give away important plot points.

Violence & Gore

  • Jodie has marks on her back/shoulder area, which we eventually learn is the result of her stepfather coming at her with a sharp blade. We don't actually see that happen, but Jodie tells the story.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Jodie's stepfather is an abusive man who hits both Jodie and her mother. A lot of it is just talked about by Jodie and not actually seen on screen, but the man does beat the mother in one scene. We don't see the fight, but the woman is later found in her home unconscious and bleeding. She is hospitalized and seen in serious condition.
  • Ray grabs Jodie around the neck and basically says he's going to hurt her, but she is saved when someone else comes up behind him and hits him with a shovel, knocking him unconscious.
