Sex & Nudity

  • A woman in a bathtub, body obscured by bubbles.
  • In one song, Eliza's lower class Father sings: "The gentle sex was made for man t'marry. To share his nest and see his food is cooked. The gentle sex was made for man t'marry But, with a little bit of luck, with a little bit of luck You can have it all and not get hooked" Which not only is insulting and might upset young girls, but also goes along to the fact that the character earlier mentions that he never married Eliza's mother and that marriage is "middle-class-morality".
  • None. No sex or nudity.
  • In one scene, a man jokes that he would sell his daughter for money. A few references to kissing (and some kissing shown as well) and one to "making love."

Violence & Gore

  • In an imaginary sequence, Eliza orders the execution of Professor Higgins, and he is then bloodlessly shot by a firing squad; this is played entirely for laughs.


  • Professor Higgins calls Eliza a "Brazen Hussy" Which is the equivalent to "B*tch".
  • Fifteen uses of "damn," eight abuses of "God," one use "arse," and two of "bloody."

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • No drugs.
  • There is drinking at parties, at home, and in a bar, sometimes to excess. There is also some cigar smoking.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • A scene where Eliza's clothes are forced off in order to bathe her, she fights back and yells, may be distressing for some.


The Parents Guide items below may give away important plot points.

Sex & Nudity

  • Professor Higgins is quite misogynistic throughout the entire film. Breaking into song several times all about "why can't a woman be more like a man". In the end, he "has a change of heart" only realising he can't live without her because he is "accustomed to her".
