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

The flamboyant lemur King Julien XIII falls in love with a female bear. Their "love" is punctuated by him saying, "Ooh, you have a very hairy back. I like that in a woman," and scenes of the lemur getting accidentally crushed, battered and slammed around by the bear's bulky movements. At one point, Julienexclaims, "No means no!"

Julien sings the racy Nelly song "Hot in Here," changing the line "So take off all your clothes" to "So take off all your fur."

When Alex sees Gia for the first time, his eyes widen and he says "Wow!"

Somebody mentions a circus troupe that performed "in the nude."

Vitaly wears very suggestive tights.

Violence & Gore

Animals run inside a huge police assault vehicle and they are chased by the police: we see scooters run off a bridge without hurting riders and several parked cars are overturned, the police vehicle sails off a road landing on top of a hotel roof and leaving a parked car in the street bursting into flame (no one is harmed), and an airplane fires bananas at a woman, who chases the police vehicle (she dodges and is unharmed); the animals climb a rope to the plane, the woman grabs one of their feet, lets go and somersaults through building windows, reconnects with the animal foot and is finally dumped into a rooftop swimming pool unharmed.

A bear beats up a police officer, but we see no injury.

A large plane crashes and many police cars with sirens and flashing lights chase the animal passengers (they are uninjured and jump onto a train).

Large animals fall through a glass ceiling in a casino and are not harmed.

A police officer fires tranquillizer darts dozens of times at animals, people and seemingly into the audience; animals that are struck fall asleep and are unharmed, and people that are struck fall down and we see them later in a hospital with leg casts, body casts, a head cast and metal head braces.

A woman walks on feet and hands like a spider and then like a dog; she sniffs rods and rail tracks, sneers and threatens to cut animals' heads off.

A woman carries a handsaw several times in an attempt to remove heads from living animals, but she always fails to make blade contact.

A wall in a woman's office is entirely covered with mounted animal heads of all kinds and a shadowy display of large-toothed leg-hold traps.

While on a train, a knife throwing circus tiger twirls a dagger and in several scenes throws daggers, spears and cleavers at animals, creating outlines around them.

A pack of small circus dogs argue and threaten bodily harm twice with knives and a broken wine bottle but no one is harmed.

A tiger jumps through a small flaming hoop and we hear that he was badly burned because he used olive oil to smooth his hair, but we do not see his injuries; later, he looks at his hoop collection and imagines flames that fill the screen.

A dozen cobras escape their zoo pit, slither into a pool in another cage, and strike into the audience with wagging tongues.

A woman rolls under a train that passes over her without harm.

A zebra and a sea lion are each shot from a cannon several times: in one scene, each one hits a rock wall, but is unharmed and rappels down with a rope; later, a woman is fired from the cannon into an empty lion cage, where she roars loudly.

A lion hangs from the roof of a moving train, runs across the top of several cars and hoists himself through a boxcar door.

A lemur buys a motorcycle for a bear using a stolen ring; the shopkeeper is arrested by several police officers that point many handguns at him, seemingly from the audience.

A bear and a lemur argue and wrestle around a boxcar floor, but the lemur jumps away and leaves.

A nuclear reactor powers an SUV and explodes (it does not harm anyone).

A police officer enters a hospital ward and shoots out all of the lights but one with her dart gun.

Large animals practice walking a tightrope and swinging in a trapeze act, falling into nets or swinging around a tightrope by the neck; no one is hurt.

Several aerial circus acts appear at night in sequence on wires and swings attached under hot air balloons with rainbows, neon lights, fireworks and flashing lights filling the screen for several minutes.

A police officer shoots several rounds from his handgun into the ceiling of a jail cell, penguins knock out the officer along with several other officers, and the camera cuts to the inside of packing crates where we see the officers tied, gagged and duct-taped; we then see the outside of the crates marked "Madagascar" with a large freighter ship transporting them, as the officers scream.

Three lemurs step on slimy fish bones in a train car and red eyes in the darkness are illuminated to reveal a bear in a tutu on a tricycle.

A lion has a nightmare in which a giraffe is old and gray, seated in a rocker and having an IV drip, while an elderly hippo uses a walker; the lion wakes up and complains to a zebra that he and his friends will be old and wrinkly and die in Africa if they do not escape.

A TV is thrown out of a hotel window and into the audience, we see a pillow fight inside the hotel room and pillow feathers flying, fireworks fly into the audience and burst into colors and a zebra falls into the audience unharmed.

A lemur vomits mass quantities of pink cake icing.

A bear slobbers several times on one lemur.

The main antagonist laps up dirty water from a deep footprint.

Profanity

4 mild scatological terms, 2 uses of "damn", 1 anatomical term and 1 religious exclamation (an urgent prayer in Italian.)

17 cases of name-calling (ugly muggly, crazy, jerk, dirty animal, dirty, stinky, stupido, emotional whoopee cushion, hippies, roosky, retard, poo-woman, asshole), 14 stereotypical references to corporate greed, Canadians, the French, French Canadians, Italians, Africans, Russians, circus people, midgets, zoos, police officers, exclamations (heck, damn, chimichanga!)

2 uses of "retarded" (in rather mean ways).

When Dubois arrives at the casino in Monte Carlo and starts slapping the manager, at one point it looks like she says "You f***ing fool!", although we can't hear it that good.

Character exclaims, "That's Bolshevik!" in an obvious play on 'that's bulls**t.'

A woman frequently fires a tranquilizer gun at people and animals and when hit the people or animals fall asleep.

After being tranquilized a lemur stumbles and slurs his words.

A tranquilizer dart is marked with skull and crossbones as poison.

A woman receives a tranquillizer dart in the buttocks and falls asleep.

Small dogs argue and threaten one another with broken wine bottles.

Two characters briefly smoke bananas like cigars.

In the opening scenes, Alex is having a bad dream in which he sees all of his friends as very elderly. It is shown in harsh black and white and very in-your-face 3D, and the way the characters look may be frightening to young children. It lasts less than two minutes.

The cop chase in Monte Carlo might be intense for some much younger viewers, but is mostly played for laughs.

In a scene, where King Julien, Maurice and Mort are in a dark scary train car with scratches on the walls, a pair of glowing red eyes approaches them, although it turns out to be a relatively friendly bear.

Toward the end of the film, Captain Dublois hides a gun with a lethal poisoned dart in a foam finger and points it at Alex, who is trapped in his enclosure in the zoo. She fires the gun, but Gia comes and saves Alex at the last second.
