MPAA Rated PG-13 for some sexual content

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


  • 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.
