Sex & Nudity

  • Gwen often wears low-cut outfits that show (to varying degrees) her ample cleavage. She comments that past interviews focused only on her "boobs" and not her.
  • Kwan, Fleegman and Laliari are in a control room where Kwan unleashes the captured rock monster on a group of aliens in another room. After the three watch the attack on the monitor, Laliari starts kissing Kwan passionately in front of Fleegman. During the moment, she starts feeling up Kwan with her tentacles. Eventually, Kwan and Laliari disappear behind the control board, causing Fleegman to comment "Oh that's not right!"
  • Due to a deleted seduction scene, with 20 minutes left in the movie there is a very abrupt change where Gwen's uniform switches from being zipped up to be zipped down to her belly button. Her chest and bra are partially on display for the remainder of the movie.
  • There's a visual joke about Nesmith kneeling and bending over to look for his shoes (while only wearing a shirt) and that the four aliens get a view of his bare butt sticking up in the air, but due to our angle we don't see what they do.

Violence & Gore

  • There is a scene where Fred uses the ship's digital conveyor to transport an animal to the ship, but the animal has been turned inside out. The animal is spurting up green blood and finally explodes in a gory mess.
  • Sarris shocks Mathesar (as a means of torture) and then grabs Nesmith by the neck. Moments later, one of Sarris' crew members gutpunches Nesmith, doubling him over. Then they shock Nesmith before Sarris orders the actors into space.
  • We briefly see playback footage of Sarris zapping the Thermians' former commander (and then see the grimaces of those watching the playback). We then see Sarris holding one of his former crew member's reptilian-like head on a stick.

Profanity

  • At least 4 hells, 3 damns, 2 asses, 1 slang term for breasts ("boobs"), and 3 uses of "Oh my God" and 1 use each of "G-damn," "For God's sakes," "Oh God" and "God" as exclamations. The word "f--k" is clearly dubbed in one scene (to keep the movie's PG rating) with the words "screw that!" There is also one half-use of sh-t.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Nesmith pours booze from a bottle and we then see him wake up the next morning after having passed out on his living room floor. He then has something of a hangover.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • It's possible that the sight of Sarris, his troops, and various other creatures could be somewhat unsettling or even a little scary to some younger kids if they're allowed to watch this film.
  • The film's ending has the crew racing against time to save the Thermians, stop the villains, and prevent a core explosion from destroying the spaceship (most of them happened in a comically adventurous manner).

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Part of the climax of the movie involves using a (sci-fi gizmo) to undo fatal mistakes, and thus there is initially the impression that very bad things have happened to the characters which may surprise younger viewers. Similarly, the bad guy isn't really dead (surprise surprise), and his sudden and threatening reappearance may startle young viewers.
