MPAA Rated R for violence, language and brief drug use

Sex & Nudity

  • Budd works in a "titty bar". No explicit nudity, but girls can be seen in skimpy clothes. Cleavage is shown.
  • A character comments on a woman's breasts in a lewd way
  • A poster depicting a woman wearing a dress and nothing underneath is shown for a few lengthy seconds.
  • Not really any

Violence & Gore

  • Some scenes of strong violence.
  • In the first opening minutes of the film we see the Bride getting shot in the head. It is in black and white, but much blood splatters out of her head. The blood can be seen only for an extremely brief amount of time, because it cuts off to the opening credits almost as soon as she's shot.
  • Several close-combat fighting scenes with lots of kicking, punching, and Mêlée weapons. Sometimes, the results are somewhat bloody.
  • In the cast sequence we see brief images from Kill Bill, Vol. 1 that contain several bloody injuries -- including a brief image where a woman is holding a man's decapitated head.


  • There is frequent language throughout the movie but it's not as constant other Tarantino movies like Reservoir Dogs or Pulp Fiction.
  • "Fuck" is said 30 times
  • "Shit" is said about ten times.
  • "Cunt" is said once, in a joking way
  • Some milder language throughout: "bitch," "ass," and "goddamn."

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Three characters are smokers.
  • We see two characters clearly snorting cocaine casually, one of them a prostitute and the other telling her to do it.
  • A drunk man continues to drink. Other characters drink as well, sometimes to excess.
  • A woman tells a man to smoke some pot.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • This film is less violent than the first
  • One extremely tense scene involves The Bride (or Beatrix) being buried alive in a wooden box. This is very intense and considerably somewhat hard to watch, especially when she is seen crying in the box underground. The scene may also trigger claustrophobia (the fear of enclosed spaces), which could make it even worse to some as well. In fact, Uma Thurman, who plays Beatrix, developed claustrophobia due to her being terrified right after filming this scene.
  • The Bride's final confrontation with Bill (although they only fight for about 30 seconds) and the lead up to it is very intense, emotionally.


The Parents Guide items below may give away important plot points.

Violence & Gore

  • Budd is attacked by a snake. It bites their face several times and we see him on the floor with a swollen face. He later dies from the snake bites.
  • In a scene, Beatrix Kiddo (or The Bride) quickly pulls out the eye of Elle Driver and we briefly see Elle's very bloody face where the eye used to be, where she is shown thrashing around in the bathroom while screaming in extreme agony. We later see Elle's eyeball fall onto the floor, and we see a close up of it being squished under Beatrix's foot. This is undoubtedly the most gruesome scene of the movie.
  • A character's heart is implied to have exploded, we only see a small amount of blood at their mouth as he walks away and falls to his death.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Though slightly comical in nature, the scenes in which Elle Driver's eyes are literally plucked out of her head could be painful to watch for some, not for the squeamish.
