A woman shows cleavage throughout the movie. A man is comically being shocked with electricity and falls on his knees in a vibrating motion (because of the shock) unintentionally cornering a woman against a wall, but has his head directly facing her breasts, which angers the woman because she thinks he's being vulgar.

A woman talks of passion and thinks the man is being passionate when he knocks her to the floor.

An old woman 'adopts' who she thinks is one of a man's many children, because her eyesight is terrible. At a wedding, when the man decides that he wants to marry the girl who went with the old woman, the old woman exclaims, "Incest?!", although she is not his child, but his former house maid.

The father works in a funeral parlor. He talks about his troubles to the smiling corpse of an old man (the corpse is pale, but not graphic).

The children play a trick on a nanny by pretending to eat a baby (they put baby socks on drumsticks, etc. while the real baby is hidden in a pot).

A girl almost catapults a baby into a pot of boiling water.

A man grabs an electrically charged doorknob and gets a shock.

A child makes a science-experiment type of "bomb" out of green goo to "blow up the cook" who is tied to a table.

A child hits an adult in the head with a pot.

There is a spirited food fight with colorful cakes.

A man knocks a woman to the floor to protect her from tricks the children try to play on her.

A child tries to get a woman to sit on an arrow.

Children try to dump gelatin on a woman.

A man gets hit in the back with a wad of paste flung by a large slingshot.

A man smacks a woman in the head to get a "bee".

A young boy is seen chopping a doll's head off with a miniature guilotine.

2 mild obscenities (hell, bugger).

We see wine at a wedding.

Small children may be concerned during the "baby eating scene" until they see that the baby is fine.

A character wants to take one of the children away to live with her, which upsets the family.

During an episode of naughtiness, the children wreak havoc in the kitchen, including one child putting objects in a makeshift catapult that another child jumps on to fling the items across the kitchen and into a pot of boiling water.

The children are put under a spell that speeds up their naughtiness out of their control, and they cannot stop themselves--the sleeping baby is put into the catapult at the last minute, but ends up not getting thrown.

Rated PG for mild thematic elements, some rude humor and brief language
