MEET DAVE is a children’s sci-fi comedy about an alien space ship in the shape of a human sent to Earth who befriends a boy and his mother.

Language

There are infrequent uses of mild bad language (‘jerk’, ‘hell’).

Violence

There are occasional scenes of mild violence, including the alien protagonist being hit by a car, flipping over a bully, foiling an armed robbery and a moment where he is electrocuted by a taser which reboots him.

Threat

Mild scary moments occur when the miniature crew of the alien ship are let loose in New York City and have to negotiate relatively giant dangers (such as dogs urinating and bus windscreen wipers).

There are two very mild sex references as a police officer refers to ‘a roll in the hay’ and a ‘hot’ woman, as well as some instances of toilet humour including fart jokes.
