This movie was around before they started rating movies. I rate it "G", for the whole family, but you might have a hard time getting a little boy to sit through it. If you love Lucille Ball, or musicals, or both, you'll love this movie. It's on my top 10 favorites list. I taped it several years ago, but part of it got taped over and I have been looking for it on DVD for years. It's a good Christmas movie, the song "I need a little Christmas" comes from it.
