Sex & Nudity
- There is almost no sexual content in this film.
- At the beginning, Michael exposes some of his chest, and all his shoulders at a concert.
- In the "Smooth Criminal" segment, there are some sexual dances, but very brief, and a little revealingly.
- In the "Come Together" segment, an unbuttoned shirt reveals a lot of Michael's chest, and there is a little sexual dance.
- There are several "crotch-grabs," not only by Michael, but by the child and claymated rabbit who imitate him.
Violence & Gore
- There is no gore in the film, however there is intense violence throughout the "Smooth Criminal" part of "Moonwalker".
- In the club, Michael Jackson shoots the goons to escape the club. One sneaks up behind him with a knife, and is shot (He dissipates into a police outline), one is beaten, and one is apparently shot by someone other than Michael.
- Katie (Kellie Parker) is kidnapped and thrown around roughly at the end of the film, which includes having her hair pulled, and being knocked in the head.
- There is a fight at the end, where Michael Jackson is beaten (there is no gore) with a kick to the stomach. Several things are blown up and shot at.
- When Michael turns into a robot, most of the violence turns to screaming, yelling, and guns. When he turned into a car, he ran away.
- Overall, only one profanitic word, "hell".
Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking
- In the "Smooth Criminal" segment, Mr. Big tries to inject an addictive drug into Katie, but fails.
- There are tarantulas that have been genetically engineered with venom that includes addictive drugs, by Mr. Big.
- There is little use of drugs in the club.
Frightening & Intense Scenes
- In the "Leave Me Alone" segment, Jackson is shown dancing with the Elephant Man's bones, a bit graphic and frightening. There is also a giant pair of dentures that are "chomping" along to the song, very intense for minors.
- In the "Speed Demon" segment, animated and real figures often shapeshift into numerous disguises. Some are especially graphic, and frightening.
- Overall, this is a good anthologic film for young viewers.
