A man says Sex is creeping in.

Several scenes of people being punched in fights as well as strangled and hit with various things. Some scenes of people being threatened with guns and shot at (though no one is ever shown to be actually shot).

There is talk of disemboweling a person. Never shown!

Ringo is attacked by Clang and his men, Nothing bad happens to him, but sone attempt's can be frightening for young audiences, but most of this is comical and played for laughs.

Overall this is a G rated picture so violence really cant get stronger.

The Beatles do smoke cigarettes in the film. It does not appear to be a major plot point.

The Beatles also visit a bar and drink briefly.

It should be noted that The Beatles are high on drugs throughout the film. Although it isn't actually said in the film but It is implied by the way how they act.

The idea of Ringo being offered as an unwilling sacrifice may disturb some viewers.

Ringo is approached with a chainsaw, which may be frightening for young viewers.

Overall the scenes that may seem frightening or alarming are played for laughs as the outcome is comical.

Ringo gets kidnapped and is about to be sacrificed. Can be disturbing.
