Since the beliefs that parents want to instill in their children can vary greatly, we ask that, instead of adding your personal opinions about what is right or wrong in a film, you use this feature to help parents make informed viewing decisions by describing the facts of relevant scenes in the title for each one of the different categories: Sex and Nudity, Violence and Gore, Profanity, Alcohol/Drugs/Smoking, and Frightening/Intense Scenes.

Sex & Nudity

Contains discreet sexual innuendo as a man finds himself surrounded by young women who ask to be spanked. The leader of the group then requests "oral sex",

Also contains infrequent still images of artistic nudity.

There is a scene in the unedited film when they are at the Castle Anthrax and there is a woman who is completely naked. Her breasts as well as private parts are clearly visible. A naked man, whose private parts are also visible, gets up and stands next to her as they look over the balcony.

Violence & Gore

The blood is cartoon-like, and is unlikely to disturb younger viewers.

Two Knights sword fight. The fight ends when one Knight throws a sword, which goes through the other Knight's head. Blood sprays out. It's unrealistic and comical.

Two men sword fight. One man cuts off the other mans limbs. He is left on the floor without any limbs. No open wounds, little blood, the scene is comical and the Knight continues to fight without each limb.

Various sword fights occur throughout the film, resulting in the bloody deaths of numerous characters. In one scene, a knight has his limbs cut off in a fight.

In a humourous scene, a seemingly harmless rabbit bites several peoples' heads off; causing blood to splatter everywhere.

a knight is eaten by an animated monster.


Contains sparring uses of mild coarse language (e.g. "shit").


Some parts of the film can be intense.

Suggested MPAA Rating: PG for comic violence, language, and some sexual humour.
