The content of this page was created directly by users and has not been screened or verified by IMDb staff.
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

Georgette is very flirtatious during her musical number "Perfect Isn't Easy".

There are some very subtle sexual references between Georgette & Tito near the end of the movie but it is so subtle that children probably do not even notice. And it is quickly covered up by Georgette telling Tito that she will start by giving him a bath.

Violence & Gore

In a phone call, Sykes tells one of his underlings how to beat up a man who owes him money.

There is a dog fight in which Dodger gets hurt.

Two dogs get electrocuted after being thrown onto electric rails. One gets electrocuted off-screen, while we see the other one get brutally shocked.

The main villain, Sykes, gets run over by a train at the end climax.

Profanity

A hot dog salesman at the beginning of the film smokes a cigar.

Sykes is constantly seen smoking a cigar.

Tito holds a cigar and sniffs it while talking about a life of luxury.

The beginning is very emotional and unhappy. Oliver gets very unlucky after the adoptive kitty box gets ripped apart and dragged into the sewer by a huge wave on a very big stormy night. Oliver is very frightened when he doesn't have a box to stay in for the night, when encountering violent and rogue dogs in the alley, and going to sleep by sitting on a pick up truck tire.

Stray dogs growl and chase Oliver which may be frightening to some children.

Syke's dobermans may frighten some children.

Sykes gets hit by a train near the end of the movie. There is also a quite frightening scene involving all of the major characters trying to get away from Sykes with the train coming towards them in an enclosed tunnel. Sykes ties up Jenny before all this happens and his dogs creepily sniff out the other dogs.

The World Trade Center appears in the background in a few scenes. This may prompt questions from children who live in New York City but are unaware of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
