Sex & Nudity

  • Strong sex references.
  • Probably the tamest out of the Trilogy including Hot Fuzz, and Shaun of the Dead
  • A robot woman tells a man that she wants him inside her.
  • A man follows a woman into a pub toilet thinking she wants to have sex with him.
  • Mild sex references.
  • Nothing out of the ordinary for a british comedy
  • A man says that he may have gotten a woman pregnant because "she was two weeks late" (referring to her menstrual cycle).
  • Three women dance suggestive in schoolgirl outfits and kiss three men as they dance on them; one of them swallows a man's wedding ring.
  • There are no sex scenes and the only nudity is a man's buttocks
  • A man's nude buttocks are shown for three seconds as he proves the existence of a scar of his.

Violence & Gore

  • A man's head smashes against a mirror. A tiny spot of blood is seen on the window and on his forehead.
  • Strong fantasy violence.
  • All the violence is comical and over the top, there are scenes of violence but it's done to human-like robots with blue blood so no actual gore is seen.
  • Frequent strong violence in the second half, however all the blood is like blue paint and only the robot/aliens are injured.
  • A human-like robot's head is smashed open, and blue liquid pours out from it in a blood-like manner.
  • Many scenes of limbs being torn off, head smashed open, being cut in half or smashed through things, but this is all done to alien/robots and they can re-attach their limbs.
  • The blue blood/liquid is sprayed all over the characters in a comical fashion.
  • Some humans are thrown about and punched but none of them suffer bad injuries.
  • A man smashes his head into a wall 11 times to prove that he is human.
  • A man dives of a wall onto a car and the windows smash; he appears to be seriously injured but is actually fine.
  • In the middle of a dramatic argument, a man's bandaged arms are shown with a hospital bracelet on his wrist, implying self-harm and/or a suicide attempt.

Profanity

  • Frequent swearing throughout the movie
  • Very strong language.
  • 3 uses of "cunt", over 70 f-words, and several uses of milder language such as "shit" and "cock".

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • The plot of the movie revolves around five men attempting an epic pub crawl. Naturally you see them drinking a lot.
  • Implied mild drug use
  • Most of the film is set in various pubs and people are seen drinking, a few are seen drunk.
  • Some people are seen smoking in the background.
  • Some references to marijuana (shown onscreen for about 15 seconds total) and an ex-drug dealer is seen. They ask him for marijuana but he refuses, saying that he no longer deals drugs.
  • Some men jokingly make a hand gesture to their friend snorting cocaine in the bathroom; later when a policeman arrives, the man checks his pockets and says, "Oh, never mind, I did it all in the services."
  • A main character is an alcoholic, shown in a help circle once in the beginning of the film. It is also said that he once overdosed (this is not meant to be comical).

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Out of all the films in the cornetto trilogy, this one is the most tame.
  • Moderate comic threat, horror.
  • Not a scary film, but a number of intense scenes.
  • The way the robots look may scare some children, as they have blue beams of light coming from their eyes and mouth
  • The violence is rather intense, however it is all presented in a highly stylized and comical manner and all done to robots that look like humans with blue blood. This may still scare younger children though.
  • 15: very strong language, strong fantasy violence, sex references.

Spoilers

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

Violence & Gore

  • Just like the other movies by Edgar Wright and Simon peg this movie has an extreme amount of violence but it doesn't seem that bad as 99% of all the blood is blue.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • The main character is an alcoholic. However, it's heavily implied in the final scene that he's beaten his alcoholism.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • After coming face to face with a man who once bullied him at school, a man explains his torment at the hands of the bully and that the most upsetting thing about seeing him again was that he didn't even recognise him. The scene is quite sad and may upset viewers who have suffered similarly.
  • There are some dramatic scenes during the end of the film involving arguing (not meant to be comical) and a man's bandaged wrists are shown with a hospital bracelet, implying self-harm and/or a suicide attempt.
