Sex & Nudity

Rated PG-13 for some crude humor, some language and comic violence

Brief moment where an elderly woman is asked her opinion on sex with furniture.

There is also a prostitute briefly shown.

Violence & Gore

A thumb is severed by table saw with copious amounts of cartoonish, spurting blood(That's why UHF got the PG-13 Rating). Fist fights, numerous gunfights, bodies non-graphically exploding after being hit by arrows or bullets, staple gun being fired an person's face, person comically cleaved in half by a sword with no blood or gore, karate players falling through windows, body flattened by giant rock.

A man backs out of a cave entrance and is comically knocked over by a speeding train

Dogs are "taught how to fly" by being thrown out of a 3rd floor window.


Four instances where "Hell" is used. Two utterances of "sucks," and one usage of God's name in vain.

George and Bob visit a bar. Uncle Harvey is always seen with a cigar

Stanley is held up at gun point by a bunch of thugs towards the end.
