MPAA Rated PG-13 for intense battle sequences and some sexual content

Sex & Nudity

  • General Custer talks about "muscle spasms and Poison to the gonads" He describes this as "medical terminology". This may be too suggestive for younger viewers.
  • During most of the movie there is a strong sense of sexual tension/sex. It's presented in an almost funny way, but it's one of the key components of the movie.
  • Includes scenes in which sexual intercourse is strongly implied, with Little Big Man under the sheets with a giggling woman, in one case followed by two others in the same tent.
  • There is a scene where a married middle-aged woman bathes a teenage boy (he was fully able to do so himself) and kisses him after he gets out of the tub. Soon after this scene, Little Big Man hears/sees the same woman cheating on her husband with another man----the scene is not visually graphic however it is strongly sexual and lngthy---the two's legs are shown intertwined, lying in bed and we hear the two orgasm, explicitly.
  • Main character visits a " of ill-fame" where a worker describes herself as a "...fallen flower." She rolls off her stockings, unbuttons her bustier (only shows stomach), lays on bed waiting for customer (nothing sexual happens beyond that point).
  • An Indian woman gropes Little Big Man's sister's (clothed) breasts, to confirm whether she is male or female.
  • During a battle scene, a woman's clothes catch on fire, she takes them off and she is seen fully nude for a brief moment before falling into the snow. She is seen for a relatively far distance, so her breasts aren't really that easy to see. Nothing explicit about that scene.

Violence & Gore

  • Includes attack scenes, including the killing of unarmed men and women fleeing attacking soldiers. Some fighting scenes include bloody injuries.


  • Damn & Hell are used. There might be other profanities used but I don't remember.
  • Gonads is used by General Custer.

  • Some drinking and smoking is present during the movie.
