Sex & Nudity

Violence & Gore

Lots of tense action and chase scenes but no blood or gore.

There are several "thumb" artificial creatures (their heads and limbs are all made out of huge thumbs.)

A girl spits special gum on a "thumb" and causes it to convulse as if electrocuted, and drop to the floor; a "thumb" is electrocuted and killed.

Two people jump off a cliff but are saved thanks to their parachutes.

Planes and helicopters fly over a wedding and people run and jump away; one person lands on a table.

A girl kicks a boy off monkey bars; he falls and hits his face on the floor but is fine.

A boy throws a dumbbell at a girl and misses (breaks a flower pot instead).

A robot boy twists a girl's arm; then the girl punches the presumably metallic robot and her hand hurts. She then head-butts it, but just falls to the ground and her head now hurts.

A man throws another man through a window, a man punches a window out and a man punches another in the face.

Several "thumbs" attack a man, busting a wall down and capturing him.

A boy pulls a man's leg and knocks him to the ground and a girl flips a man.

A man in a car almost runs over a woman but no one is hurt.

A car runs off the road over a cliff and into the sea, but then turns into a submarine.

Two kids are caught in a high speed boat-like vehicle that's out of control; a boy almost falls into the sea, but a girl pulls him back.

Then the vehicle speeds toward the face of a cliff but at the last moment turns into a submarine and goes underwater.

A boat runs into another boat, ripping it in half.

Two people are kidnapped and tied to chairs in two separate scenes (first with rope and then with colorful chains).

A floor collapses twice and people almost fall in.

A man lands face-first on a glass floor, and two people fall through a ceiling.

Several men are turned into "mutants": they have enlarged, squished faces in gaudy colors; one has extra fingers and hands growing from his head.

A man's face is distorted to make him look like a mutant.

A boy hits himself in the head with a metal lunchbox.

A boy hits both a girl and a man in the head with a lunchbox.

Kids throw toys at adults.

A man's hand is caught in a ceiling fan (no injury or blood).

A man grabs a girl's leg, and a woman is hit and knocked down by a small rocket; her hair catches fire (we see the flames on her head and later she's mostly bald).

A girl flies through a window.

A plane malfunctions and nearly crashes, scaring the two kids inside.

Sharks swim in front of a boat, scaring two kids.

A few men fly through a billboard.

A plane runs into a mountain and its wings are clipped (no one is hurt).

A robot girl lifts a boy over her head and spins him round and round. She then throws him down a corridor. He tries to tackle her but she shrugs him off with superhuman force, sending him sliding backwards.

A robot boy tackles a girl, and a robot girl punches a pillar and damages it. A boy tries to do the same and he just causes himself pain (no injury).

A robot girl lifts a boy by the neck and regards him sneeringly..

We hear several punches and kicks and then see four men on the ground.

A man busts through a glass window.

People serve gross-looking pig intestines.

Two kids swim underwater, through a cave filled with sleeping sharks.

A shark wakes up and chases them, with his mouth wide open.

At the last moment the kids get away and close a door behind them.

A boy says he urinated in the water.

There's talk of a girl wetting her bed.


Two mild scatological references.

One of the kids begins to say "s**t!" before quickly changing it to "shitake mushrooms."

Several instances of name calling.

One using the name of God in vain - "Oh my God"


The robot Carmen's facial expressions and tone of voice indicate that she is enjoying her dominance over Juni.
