Sex & Nudity

There is a group bathing and dressing scene near the beginning (during the opening credits) that cuts back and forth between the men's baths and dressing room and the women's showers and dressing room and which contains both male and female rear nudity, including some brief glimpses of male genitalia, and some very brief views of the sides of women's breasts. <<Don't know how anyone could see "the sides of women's breast" since the only scene this could refer to is filmed in a blur and those women are in the distance with arms moving in front of them.>>

Women in the movie wear lots of low cut dresses which show cleavage.

There is a brief sex scene midway through the movie that includes some groaning and motion but no nudity. The villainous Don John is trying to make it appear that Hero, Claudio's fiancee, is cheating on him.

There are Shakespearean vague allusions to sex that most adults don't even recognize for what they are (e.g. a man telling a woman "I die in your lap").

Violence & Gore

None.

Profanity

Little by modern standards. Some Elizabethan-era oaths are uttered.

"Ass" roughly 7 times, "Bastard" once or twice.

There is a party scene where the wine flows abundantly.

Claudio is grief stricken when he is made to believe that Hero has died, but even his grief is not that intense. Hero bursts into tears when Claudio denounces her earlier, but there is nothing very intense in the film at all.
