MPAA Rated PG for mild thematic elements and some action

Sex & Nudity

  • As a toddler, Riley is seen running around naked after a bath with her underwear on her head.
  • At one point a side character says "Step on it, daddy." It is used in a driving scene and is only noticeable to adults.

Violence & Gore

  • Anger ends up punching and choking Fear.
  • Anger ends up shoving Fear & Disgust (twice).
  • Fear is often on the receiving end of cartoon violence, often from Anger.


  • A running gag about all the curse words that Anger knows. He never actually says any.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The clown might be scary to some younger viewers.
  • The basement stairs can frighten some.
  • The Haunted Mansion music plays in Riley's first nightmare. Played for laughs.
  • A giant clown is featured as one of Riley's greatest fears.
  • A dog is briefly seen apparently cut by half during a nightmare sequence; the head end then chases the tail end.
  • Riley's teeth fall out in a dream sequence and in another one a zombified rat appears in reference to a dead rat she finds in her house earlier.


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


  • After Joy and Sadness disappear, Anger asks if he can 'say that curse word now'.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The last 15 minutes can be emotionally intense for many, mainly adults rather than children, as the film is about showing it is okay to be sad when life changes and people grow up.
  • Bing Bong dies by fading away. Very sad and powerful.
