Gru puts a belt on that is supposed to detect something and he walks around thrusting his hips towards inanimate objects, he prolongs his thrusting towards a picture of another man. His thrusts can be considered to be vulgar and sexual.

They show a picture of Gru in a Speedo and is pretty detailed, and the youngest girl, Agnes, notices and says "ew, what is that" and the other girls cover her eyes.

A minion wearing a little-girl disguise loses the skirt on an escalator, revealing pink underwear and hides in a flowerpot.

In a beach scene, a minion runs off camera, tosses his coveralls back onto the sand, and the camera cuts to his posterior as he runs into the ocean.

An outhouse door opens and we see a seated man covered by a large newspaper.

Agnes tells Gru "I know what makes you a boy" and he is puzzled and asks "you do?", implying she knows about the male body part, and then she says "your bald head".

Everything is played for laughs

3/10 - Most of the violence is comedic.

The violence is similar to Looney Tunes. There are explosions, fire, crashes etc, but the characters manage to survive without serious injuries.

Minions receive purple injections and change into snarling, purple frazzle-haired zombies with raggedy teeth; they eat anything, including tricycles, bushes, a whole front yard and a police car; one of them chases two little girls and bites the bottom of a stuffed unicorn; many more minions are injected and become the same zombie creatures,

An overweight man drinks a purple serum and becomes a shaggy purple abominable snowman with a black beard; he chases a man who falls from a roof onto a scaffold, picks up the scaffold, and drops it as he roars at minions and the man until a scientist fires a "fart gun" to make him pass out after being shot with a taser (he convulses briefly).

A man pulls a knife and says someone will die in his restaurant tonight while a mad watch-chicken pecks at a man and a woman; the restaurant owner pulls out 10 knives and falls down unhurt.

A female spy argues with a man on the sidewalk and uses a taser gun on him and on two minions that fall into her car .

During closing credits, a black panel opens on screen as a minion lights a fuse with a cigarette lighter and the fuse burns up to a firecracker; the panel closes, we hear an explosion and we see the outlines of three minions embedded in the panel; the panel opens and the minions are dirty, but OK; they argue for several seconds, and break a sign over one's head, but do no long-term damage.

In two scenes, a fart gun fires a big blast of brown smoke toward the audience.

We hear that a woman's husband died.


2 mild scatological terms (poop), 1 moderate scatolgical term (shit), and 1 mild anatomical term (bottom). Name-calling (dream crusher, loco, crazy, bonkers, sheep's-butt and phony.) "Fart guns" are used. Also 2 f-word derivatives (m*****f***ers) (confirmed in the "unrated" version:


Three restaurant scenes show drinks on tables (no one drinks.)

Margaritas are served at a celebration (no one actually drinks).

A minion pretends to smoke (it's a toothpick).


Very mild scary scenes, but you may barely notice.

Total: 11/50


Rated PG for rude humor and mild action
