Contains mild toilet humor.

Some girls are seen wearing bikinis.

Many random moments with women's cleavage revealed.

Bare-chested men are seen

A young girl (innocently) kisses a boy on the cheek, and Skeeter gets a kiss from Jill.

A mermaid is seen from behind with the side of her breast exposed.

One man is slapped by a hand that pops out of a gun. Other mild slaps and wrestling is shown. A guy accidentally sprays something in another person's eyes and these shouts follow: "this burns", "this hurts".

At least 2 uses of "hell", "what the hell" and 4 uses of "God", "Good God" or OMG. 1 "bloody".

One of the bedtime story character's name is "buttkiss". A guy slams the door on another person twice without any real reason. In one scene children are encouraged to lie to their parent.

A number of 'butt' expressions and flatulence jokes.

References are made to drinking champagne, and there are other minor references to going "for a drink", but no drinking of alcohol is actually shown.

Some monsters from the stories may be frightening for younger children, but all are portrayed in a humorous light. For instance, a mermaid has blacked out eyes and a booger monster is particularly vivid. A divorce is discussed as well which could be problematic for some children. There's a dubious ringtone in at least a couple of scenes that may worry younger audience. A man jumps to a pond with crocodiles as a suicide attempt, this scene is brief. A guy shouts in two scenes after what they call a "sleep panic attack". A girl is threatened in two scenes.

Because of the numerous possibly frightening parts I wouldn't recommend this for younger children.

Rated PG for some mild rude humor and mild language
