There is some mild bad language, and a moment when Alexander's mother stubs her toe and almost swears.

Sex

There are some mild sex references, including to teenagers "making out". There is a scene in which a group of dancers are about to perform at a children's party and it looks like they might take their clothes off. The parents rush up to them shouting "PG! PG!"; and the dancers instantly understand and adapt their routine so they dance in a non-sexual way. Alexander is humiliated at school when someone superimposes his head onto a series of photos of women, including one in a swimsuit, one in a bikini, and one wearing stockings and suspenders. The effect is comic.
