Multiple animated bare bottoms.

Two young women look at and touch a man's private parts, no nudity seen.

Lots of blondes and brunettes from 16 to 19 and a half jokingly ask to be tied down and spanked, and given oral sex by Galahad (none of this actually happens).


Nearly all violence is exaggerated and played for laughs. All scenes of bloodshed are so unrealistic they are unlikely to disturb.

Two knights sword fight. The fight ends when one knight throws a sword (which goes through the other knight's head). Blood briefly sprays.

Two men sword fight. Eventually, one man cuts off the other man's limbs one by one, drawing much blood. He is left on the floor without any limbs. Lasts about two minutes.

A man is crushed by a huge wooden rabbit.

Somebody is stabbed, there is lots of blood.

Three men are stabbed, little detail.

Somebody gets shot in the chest with an arrow.

Lancelot slays multiple people at a wedding, and some people's clothes become blood-stained. His sword is also blood-stained.

A child jumps out of a window in the tallest tower of a castle on a swamp.

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

A knight is eaten by an animated monster.

A man suffers from a heart attack. Very brief.

Three men are flung into the gorge of eternal peril.


One use of "p*ssy." Two uses of "sh*t." Multiple British slang terms/profanities like "bugger," "bloody," etc. Two uses of "bastards" and two religious exclamations.

Lots of name calling and insults: bosom, tart, chicken, shut up, crapper, gay, sod, tit, git, weird, idiot, stupid.

Some scenes of bullying.

Battles are more comical than intense.
