In a couple of scenes (Gillian in the park trying to find Kirk after she finds the whales are gone and running into the cloaked ship, and toward the end when everyone is in the water), it appears that she is not wearing a bra because her nipples are very obviously appearing through her shirt.


One character falls from a great height and ends up unconscious and in critical condition, but is healed bloodlessly by scifi technology.

A punk on a bus is non-violently rendered unconscious. Played for laughs.

The heroes race in their ship to rescue some whales from whalers in open sea and appear too late as the whalers fire their harpoon at the animals. However, the harpoon suddenly strikes something hard in mid-air and falls harmlessly. The reason for that proves to be the heroes' ship, which was invisible at the time and arrived in time to block the shot.

During a tour of an aquatic facility, a tour group that includes the main characters is shown real footage of whalers butchering dead whales. This is accompanied by the tour guide describing the plight of the animals and their endangered status, and fits in with the film's overall "save the whales" message.


11 uses of "d**n," around 14 uses of "h***," two uses of "s**t," 1 use of "b**ch," and 6 misuses of God's name, with some being paired with "d--n".

One instance of a character giving "the finger."

Update: The infamous "Double dumbass on you!" After Kirk is called "dumbass".


Some social drinking of beer.

Offhand comment implying a character did a little too much "LSD" in the 1960s.

Slightly trippy time-travel scene may be somewhat unsettling for small children.

One scene of characters underwater, struggling for breath while escaping a sinking craft, may be intense for some.


Overall 9/50

Recommended Rating: PG for some disturbing whale hunting images, perilous action, language, and a rude gesture
