(0:53:00) Steed helps Mrs. Peel change her boots, and begins a conversation about her staying with him, then the conversation starts to take on sexual tones.

Violence & Gore

there is no gore in the film but there is alot of fighting, especially towards the end of the film and in the opening scene.

Profanity

Sean Connery says, "What a horse's arse of a name." (1:15:29) Eddie Izzard's character says, "Oh, f***."

there is no alcohol or drugs references in the film but Jim Broadbents character smokes heavily in every scene he is in.

there is only one scene in the film and this is when Uma Thurman is locked in Sean Connerys castle and sweats and runs around trying to find a way out.
