Sex & Nudity

  • Kevin looks at a Playboy Magazine in Buzz's private stuff but it only shows the front cover. He makes a comment while throwing it behind him that the people don't have clothes on.
  • Buzz and his cousin talk about French babes not shaving their pits and them having nude beaches, but not in the Winter.

Violence & Gore

  • Kevin watches a movie called Angles with Filthy Souls and a robbery happens with the character named Johnny killing another man with a machine gun. Not graphic, but smoke can be seen and his sadistic laughing while killing the man. Black and white.
  • Comedic action and slapstick violence:
  • Kevin climbs the shelf in Buzz's room and it breaks, he and everything falls.
  • Kevin shoots action figures down the laundry chute with Buzz's BB gun.
  • Kevin sets traps for the bad guys. They burn themselves, step on stuff that hurts, fall on stuff etc. They step on spikes and ornaments that hurt their feet, while wearing no shoes nor socks, get hit in the head with an iron, slip on ice, and get hit with a paint can.

Profanity

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Mild drinking on the plane.
  • A man dressed as Santa Claus smokes a cigarette.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Robbers are threatening towards Kevin.
  • Robbers finally catch Kevin and hang him on a door hook by his jumper. They then threaten to 'blow his head with a blowtorch', 'smash his face with an iron', 'shove a nail through his foot' and 'bite his fingers off'. However, Kevin is saved by Marley and none of the actions take place. Intense and quite frightening.
  • The slapstick finale is comically intended yet some of the booby traps (For example; one of the robbers steps bare foot on a rusty nail sticking up on the floor) can be fairly disturbing/cringeworthy for young children or particularly squeamish viewers. No blood is ever shown in these sequences.

Spoilers

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Kevin puts out milk and cookies for Santa on Christmas Eve, which are still there the following morning. Not really 'intense' as such, but could spoil the magic for children that still believe in him.
