MPAA Rated PG for action, smoking and slang humor

Sex & Nudity

  • Some innuendo, nothing to strong,
  • Two non-graphic mentions of pregnancy. Reference to Mrs. Fox being the "town tart" in her youth.

Violence & Gore

  • Farmers use guns frequently, but there is no blood.
  • When Mr. Fox's tail is shot off, however, the end of it that was attached to his body is red.
  • Comical fighting is shown. There are two scenes in which characters claw at other characters, leaving deep scratches, but no blood.
  • Animals are electrocuted by an electric fence, but no one is hurt.
  • Mr. Fox kills chickens with his teeth. There is a reference to how grisly and bloody the process is, but it is an over-exaggeration and meant for humorous purposes, complete with comical discretion shots.


  • Instead of using profanity, characters say sentences that would contain a swear word (especially the F word), but the word is replaced by the word "cuss" as a running joke. Some examples include "You scared the cuss out of us," "Don't you cuss with me," "What the cuss," and "cluster cuss."

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Franklin Bean is seen smoking a cigarette every time he appears. Bean also keeps a cellar full of hard apple cider, very alcoholic, which Mr. Fox steals along with Boggis and Bunce's chickens. The animals also drink the alcoholic cider. On one occasion, Mr. Fox is seen smoking a tobacco pipe.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The fight between Mr. Fox and Rat inside an electric generator room underground may be considered intense or scary for younger viewers. Most of the scene is in darkness, but brief moments of their fight are lit up by the crackling electricity. (Violent sounds may be heard.)After the fight, Rat dies, but not directly from fight injuries.
