While trying to disguise a skunk, a cork is shown and we hear the skunk scream while it is presumably inserted in its backside (to prevent it from spraying).

Several animals sit on the ground and bend over acting as if they are going to lick their private parts (their tongues are sticking out).

When a male turtle's shell comes off in two scenes its bare buttocks are exposed and in one scene it holds a cookie over its front.

A woman tries to kill several animals using a weed whacker and a man uses an electrified prod.

A woman kicks a possum, and it is thrown into a wall and falls to the floor still (we briefly think that it is dead, but it is OK).

A bear lunges at several animals, they dodge, and the bear lands on a man and a woman: we see a bright glowing beam, we hear a scream and we see the bear, the man, and a woman smoldering in a cage and missing most of their hair.

A large bear is shown in several scenes with pointed claws and teeth and a scary, deep voice.

A woman punches and kicks a few police officers.

A woman is caught in an animal trap (her feet are wrapped in netting and she falls to the floor).

A squirrel pretending to be rabid is attacked by two girls; they hit it with a book, and then spray it with pepper spray.

A bear attacks a truck as it speeds out of control along a road, and it tries to get a raccoon and in the process tears the roof off the truck; the bear is then struck by a replica of a man swinging a mallet, a porcupine sends tines into the bear's nose, the bear is pulled off the truck when it is caught in the ropes of large balloons, and the truck flips and crashes into a house.

We hear a thud and see a possum on the street in front of a truck (although uninjured it plays dead).

Several animals are afraid when they think a turtle has been eaten by a large hedge (the turtle is fine).

A dragonfly flies into a bug zapper; it is zapped, turned to ash and falls to the ground.

A dog picks up a turtle in its mouth and shakes it back and forth (the turtle is OK).

A truck runs into a wagon filled with food, a raccoon slams onto the windshield of the truck, the driver slams on the brakes, and animals in cages in the back of the truck are thrown and the cages open.

Several animals are caught in traps and put in cages (they are all afraid).

A truck speeds toward a raccoon in the road, and drives right over it (the raccoon is uninjured).

A bear wakes up to find a raccoon stealing its possessions, and the bear says, "I'm gonna have to kill you," it chases the raccoon, catches it and holds it in the air by the head; the bear then opens its mouth wide but does not eat the raccoon.

A dog chases a raccoon and a turtle, the two break through a fence, they are launched into the air, and they float downward while holding an umbrella; then a propane tank hits a car, it explodes and sends burning shrapnel into the air, which burns through the umbrella and the two animals fall to the ground (they are OK).

A raccoon talks about "the weed whacker incident" taking his family away.

A raccoon has a nightmare about a bear eating it.

A replica of a man on top of a truck moves and swings a mallet down onto the head of a replica rabbit. Traps are set to kill animals and they are tested on animal replicas (we see them being sliced in half, charred and trapped in a cage).

A cooler falls off the roof of a car and lands on a turtle, pushing it into the street. Several animals run into a glass door.

A raccoon falls from a tall shelf and lands on the floor, and a bottle falls from the shelf and shatters near the raccoon.

A turtle is sprayed by a sprinkler, nearly pierced by barbecue utensils (including a knife and fork), nearly run over by a bicycle and struck with a hockey stick (although uninjured, the turtle is shaken up).

A skunk talks about having kept something in all winter and that it's about to come out scaring several other animals out of a pile of leaves covering a log.

A skunk sprays a house (we see a green fog) and a woman gags and vomits (we hear her retching).

A turtle is frightened by something and says, "I may need to change my shell."

A squirrel burps loudly in a few scenes.

A raccoon makes reference to humans "having food out the wazoo" and other animals try to figure out what the "wazoo" is.

One oh my god, one butt, mild exclaimations (jeez, heck, dang)

Name-calling (vermin, stupid, ignorant, scoundrel, dirt-bag.)

Animals drink a caffeinated beverage and it makes them all move much faster.

Hammy gets high on caffeine.

Vincent chases after RJ and then picks him up in his paw to eat him, but RJ promises he'll replace all of his snacks and the bear relents (played for action-comedy, but younger kids might find it as intense).

Vincent then says that RJ has 1 week to do so, and warns him not to try to run away as he'll have to hunt him down and kill him.

While RJ sleeps up in a tree, we see a huge bear paw (with sharp claws) come up and then grab him.

Vincent then holds RJ above his open mouth and is ready to eat him, but we then see that it's just been a nightmare.

Younger kids may worry when Dwayne captures all of the animals (except for RJ) and Gladys tells him to dispose of them in an inhumane way.

The animals run and hide in the hedge, with Dwayne (with an electronic zapper) and Gladys (with a weed whacker) on one side, and Vincent on the other, all trying to get the animals.

Dwayne ends up zapping Vincent who then punches Dwayne in the face.

Vincent then has RJ, but Hammy moves so fast (on caffeine) that he essentially stops the world (making everyone else seem frozen). That allows RJ to escape, with Vincent landing on Dwayne and Gladys.

The laser beam activated pest trap system is then activated, with all three of them being zapped, leaving just tufts of hair on all of them. That beam also travels into outer space and hits a satellite, destroying it.
