How to Eat Fried Worms
Source: Catholic News Service
Loose adaptation of Thomas Rockwell's children's book about a weak-stomached boy (Luke Benward) who, desperate to fit in as the new kid at school and silence a bully's (Adam Hicks) taunts, agrees to eat 10 worms within the span of a Saturday afternoon. With a yuck factor that may disturb some parents, director Bob Dolman's film sends a misguided message about peer pressure that undermines charming performances and themes of friendship, honesty and standing up for oneself. Scattered mildly crude language and humor, some bullying and gross-out images and a scene of breaking into a shop. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-II -- adults and adolescents. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG -- parental guidance suggested. Some material may not be suitable for children.
