Conclusion

Pro-social Content

There's no place like home on "Nowhere (I Miss My Family)." Twelve-year-old Nat Wolff writes from his heart which, when it's not aflutter over girls (the benign "Beautiful Eyes," "Crazy Car" and "Girl of My Dreams"), belongs to "L.A." landmarks such as Universal Studios, Staples Center, Studio City and In-N-Out Burger. It doesn't get any deeper than that, unless you count observing the form and function of a "Taxi Cab" or a "Banana Smoothie." His little brother, Alex, frees his mind on "I Could Be," imagining his potential. Unfortunately ...

Objectionable Content

Dreams include being "a rapper, for example, Jay-Z." Similarly, "Alien Clones" gives nods to the horror films The Grudge and Child's Play (wishing the killer doll Chucky would feed Nat spiders and snakes). On "Fishing for Love," Nat is infatuated with "a pretty girl" who "wears little T-shirts that go up to her belly." A questionable gun metaphor mars "Long Distance."

Summary Advisory

Silliness? Fine. Puppy love? No problem. But this pre-teen bubblegum gets sticky with references inappropriate for its young target audience.
