8/10 short take - multiple views of female bare breasts and bare butt in multiple portions of the film as well as a man's butt and genital only covered by his hands - see more details below:

Today this movie would at least be pg-13 if not R due to multiple scenes of nudity

Madison (Daryl Hannah) runs down the beach naked and we can see her bare buttocks multiple times. She walks up to Allen (Tom Hanks), kisses him on the mouth and runs into the ocean to swim.

Allen and Madison make out passionately in several scenes.

Madison passionately kisses Allen. He stops her and leaves for work. He returns a few seconds later and they continue to make out as he undresses and lies on top of her on the floor. They have sex offscreen.

Madison is swimming naked underwater, with noticeable glimpses of her breasts (they are partially covered by her hair but many times you see nipples)

Madison walks naked into a large crowd of people, we see her bare buttocks in an extended shot and her breasts occasionally, and a brief view of her genitalia.

Allen and Madison are naked in a very large tub of water. He covers his genitals with his hands, and we see his buttocks from the side. We see very brief glimpses of her breasts (they are covered by her hair, but we nevertheless see them at times.

A fight scene is underwater, involving Madison, who is a mermaid, and her breasts are shown.

Young Freddie (Jason Late) looks up women's skirts frequently, pretending he has dropped some quarters.

In order to convince the soldier guarding the door to the lab where Madison is being held that he and Allen are the Swedish scientists who were coming to study her, Freddie (John Candy) tells him, in Swedish, that he has a 12-inch penis.

A couple of innuendos.

There is an underwater fight at end of film involving a hard kick to the groin and potential drowning of the victim

A few characters are arrested

4/10 A couple uses of 'shit' Very little cussing. A few mild expletives

Casual alcohol drinking
