Sex & Nudity

  • Subtle references to college professors having intimate relationships with and photographs of students, inference to their being underage.
  • some mild sexual jokes/dialogue
  • The main character Ira has a crush on a CDC scientist and makes a few references here and there, although none of these are explicit and are only meant for laughs.
  • Ira moons his old army boss (he sticks his butt out a car window) Not graphic.

Violence & Gore

  • Several alien creatures get shot (no blood). Some other creatures die of asphyxia.
  • An alien mosquito enters a man's body and we see it crawling underneath his skin. Some doctors discuss the possibility of amputating his leg. The whole scene may be a bit disturbing but it's supposed to be funny.
  • A man approaches a lake and a creature drags him inside the water. Later we learn that he was eaten by it.
  • In one scene, a doglike creature pretends to be cute and innocent, but when a middle-aged lady reaches out to stroke the creature, it quickly opens its mouth, and its tongue turns out to be a huge beak, bites a finger off the lady. Blood is seen but it's very quick.

Profanity

  • A few variants of the word "Shit" are used. 1 "horseshit" and 1 "Shittin' me" appear in the dialogue.
  • a few uses of Lords name (GD), damn" and "ass"

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • some of the military men smoke cigars
  • there is one scene at a party, and it is implied that one man is trying to get another woman drunk so shell have sex with him (this is never said outright we just assume this)

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • One of the largest blob-monsters ever seen would be frightening to younger children.
  • There are various creatures featured in the film which some children may find scary.
  • The scene where Ira and his two friends run through the mall with shotguns looking for the alien bird may upset some people. A girl is dragged around the mall by a creature.
  • In one scene, a doglike creature pretends to be cute and innocent, but when a middle-aged lady reaches out to stroke the creature, it quickly opens its mouth, and its tongue turns out to be a huge beak, bites a finger off the lady.
