The content of this page was created directly by users and has not been screened or verified by IMDb staff.
Since the beliefs that parents want to instill in their children can vary greatly, we ask that, instead of adding your personal opinions about what is right or wrong in a film, you use this feature to help parents make informed viewing decisions by describing the facts of relevant scenes in the title for each one of the different categories: Sex and Nudity, Violence and Gore, Profanity, Alcohol/Drugs/Smoking, and Frightening/Intense Scenes.

Sex & Nudity

One woman always sports formfitting dresses or shirts. She's dripping wet in a scene. And we also see her in lingerie. Curly's pet rat crawls down her front.

A number of other women wear low-cut outfits as well.

One of the nuns shows up at a pool party wearing a wimple and a very revealing bikini-like swimsuit.

A male hospital attendant flirts with Curly who's wearing a nurse's dress as a disguise.

Violence & Gore

Moe runs a whirling chain saw along Curly's cranium.

Curly accidentally bumps a guy into the street where he's hit by a bus, snagged and scrubbed along the roadway by a street sweeper, hopped on by a kid with a pogo stick and impaled by an arrowthat Larry had launched into the air earlier.

A man accidentally steps on a woman's face and breast while climbing over a fence.

The Stooges manhandle guys hospitalized in full-body casts, sticking dynamite inside the cast of one.

When a hospital guard is knocked out, Moe calls for crash cart paddles to revive him. But Larry hands him two hot clothes irons that he proceeds to plant on the guy's bare chest.

Larry plugs the airhole of a dolphin with a peanut, causing the animal to gasp for air. When Curly gives the marine mammal the Heimlich maneuver, the peanut shoots out like a bullet and careens off the scrotum of a nearby lion, causing that animal to fly into a rage.

We later see a guy's face decorated with a claw mark.


Six religious exclamations; and much name calling.

A nun says our Lord and Savior made a woman barren.

A man says, "Fosters is Australian for beer."

People are shown at a party drinking what looks like alcoholic beverages, and a man drinks from a champagne fountain.
