MPAA Rated PG for thematic elements, action and mild language

Sex & Nudity

  • A reference to a man wearing a woman's underwear is made.
  • Arthur speaks to Trillian while she is showering. She is in a stall where only her head is visible.
  • The main characters kiss.

Violence & Gore

  • No blood or gore. A robot is shot in the head and falls in a dramatic fashion. It is implied that a robot's arm is forcibly removed. A woman is nearly eaten by an off-screen monster of considerable size. An inhabited planet is destroyed in a mere second. A man is comically punched in the face by a concealed third arm. There is one scene where a man vomits, but it is depicted by colored yarn.
  • A whale falls to its death from a great height.


  • Nothing vulgar mostly confined to "damn" and "ass" if any. There is one use of "oh, bollocks"
  • There is, however, several instances of people using the word "Belgium", which in the Hitch-hiker's Guide universe is considered the most offensive word ever.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • One scene where two men drink fictional cocktails which are said to have the effect of "having your brains smashed out by a slice of lemon wrapped around a large gold brick". Two men go to a bar on Earth; one orders six pints of beer, and the other comments that it's a bit much for before lunchtime.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • This is a pretty friendly movie. There is one scene with an alien that has thousands of tiny legs attached to a human top which could frighten kids. Also a scene where a man gets his second head cut off but it is played for laughs, and depicted in a silouette. Any other things would only be slightly frightening to a 5 yr. old kid and they would have to be very immature at that.
