There are very brief scenes of women undressing, there is no graphic nudity.

A pedophile woman dates a ten year old boy, no sex is involved. In one scene the boy sniffs her hair. The pedophile woman nibbles the boy's ear in one scene. Another scene involves the pedophile woman cuddling her boyfriends, his head is resting on her breasts.

At the end, the garbage pail kids rip the dresses off the girls at the fashion show exposing their bras and panties.


Some bullies who are least 20 years old beat up a kid a few times in the movie.

Some comic violence and slapstick.

A garbage pail kid is shown carrying a pocket knife.

A garbage pail kid vomits on other people in several scenes. Very disturbing.

A group of 25 year old retards bully a ten year old for pathetic reasons.

A crocodile garbage pail kid bites peoples toes off.


"Damn" is said a few times. The language is very tame compared to the gratuitous amount of unfunny and unnecessary toilet humour and slapstick violence.


There is some smoking and drinking in this film.

The garbage pail kids dance to crappy 80s music and dance around awkwardly. The only explanation could be drugs of some sort


The garbage pail kids might scare young kids.

The garbage pail kids are just very ugly puppets.

Overall rating: 22/50

Final note: Even though rated PG and being promoted as a family flick, this is not recommended for any kids. In fact, it's not recommended for anyone as this film is just plain awful to enjoy by lowest common denominator. If you're a child, never watch this film. If you're a parent, never show this to your child.

Suggested MPAA Rating Update: PG-13 for crude humor, thematic elements, and some drug and sexual related content

Iceland:L / UK:PG (cut) / USA:PG (certificate #28712)
