MPAA Rated PG for mild thematic material and language

Sex & Nudity

  • On their way to El Dorado, Tulio and Miguel come across a spring and you see clothes thrown off and the back of their butts are briefly seen as they run into the water and then they chase after monkeys and their butts are shown again as they come out.
  • The men agree that since they're supposed to be gods and not give in to temptation, that they'll stay away from Chel, to whom they're both obviously attracted.
  • Tulio decides to "give into his temptations" and accepts Chel's offer, leading into mild foreplay in the form of rubbing Chel's shoulders, (to Tulio and Chel's pleasure). After the conclusion of a Miguel interlude in the village (including a song), Tulio and Chel are later seen in the temple together in post-play and attempting to pretend nothing happened when they hear a priest entering the doorway. Mostly comical.
  • A lady can be seen wearing very little clothing throughout the film. Her legs and midriff are exposed, as well as a small amount of her cleavage is visible.
  • Near the end of the film, Tulio and Chel are officially a couple. After discussing their future together in Spain, they close their agreement with a kiss that turns vividly passionate. The kiss between Tulio and Chel turns immensely passionate that it can only be confirmed by the incredulous, jaw-dropping expression seen by Altivo the horse after he wandered in on the couple. Again comical.

Violence & Gore

  • Miguel in one scene gets a wound on his head. Blood briefly sprays when he gets it, and later on a trickle of blood comes from it.
  • A invisible person is run over by the bull
  • Tzekel-Kan slices his own hand with a knife and smears blood on a stone wall (his wound miraculously heals instantly).
  • Leeches are briefly seen stuck to Tulio's bare back.


  • In one seen, Tulio almost says "fuck" but he is interrupted.
  • The infamous phrase "holy shit" is replaced by "holy ship" to remain on the topic about boats.
  • 2 uses of "hell" spoken by Tulio, 1 use of "crap" also spoken by Tulio, and 1 use of "Oh my God" (spoken by Miguel and Tulio during the musical number "It's Tough to be a God").

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • During a musical number, Miguel and Tulio are briefly seen with cigars.
  • Miguel and Tulio drink during a musical number.
  • The Chief is seen with a cigar in one scene.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Overall, suitable for all ages.
  • Tzekel-Kan pushes a man into a supernatural stew he's brewing which then gives the high priest supernatural powers (and presumably kills the man although that is never verified). As a result, he causes a gargantuan stone jaguar statue to come to life and chase after Tulio and Miguel in a several minute sequence that might be rather riveting, unsettling or scary to younger kids. During it, the villagers flee from the creature, it steps down onto one man (although he yells that he is ok) and chases the men into a lava flow where they're nearly tipped into the magma that the creature eventually sinks into. It suddenly leaps out, however, and chases them to the edge of a precipice above a swirling whirlpool. Moments later, it and Tzekel-Kan fall into the whirlpool as the precipice breaks away, leaving Tulio and Miguel hanging from vines.
