Sex & Nudity
- Light PG-13 material due to brief sexual content and partial nudity. Not very noticeable and not obscene. Suitable for high schoolers and classroom use.
- Sexual innuendos, but these are subtle and not vulgar in any way. The dialogue in the film is almost all taken verbatim from Shakespeare's play.
- A man and woman embrace then part and look down, suggesting male arousal.
- A brief back shot of a nude man
- Fairies are seen in the water, and some nudity is seen.
- Near nudity shown in several scenes but covered by strategically-placed hair.
- Mudwrestling scene with two women in early 19th century undergarments
- The night of a triple wedding, two of the couples are seen nude in bed, although no private bodily parts are ever shown in the film.
- The dialogue is filled with sexual interpretations, most of which will go unnoticed by children.
- A female fairy has sex (very strongly implied, but not actually shown) with a man whose head has been transformed into that of a jackass. They kiss several times, and nudity is suggested.
Violence & Gore
- Mild slapstick violence
- None whatsoever. Every line is taken verbatim from Shakespeare's play.
Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking
- In the first scene with the fairies, several of them are drunk. They are never drunk in the original play, although they speak the same lines.
Frightening & Intense Scenes
- Nothing really disturbing or altogether inappropriate in this film, except for a bit of partial nudity and sexual implications. Altogether a decent portrayal of Shakespeare's comedy.
