  • The announcing woman's dress in the music competition can be revealing.
  • The skeletons are shown nude but nothing is seen as they are covered in sparkly lights and designs, some also wear low cleavage
  • There is a subtle reference to large breasts in the French version of the song named « Juanita » but no « sexual » word is said of course.

Violence & Gore

  • A grandma chases after a child and adult men hitting them with her shoe.


  • Infrequent use of words like: "stupid", "dumb", "jerks" etc.

  • A character poisons another character's drink to kill him.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Some tense chase scenes. A character falls from a great height.
  • The ending of this movie is heartwarming and emotional at the same time.
  • A murder scene is played out and is sensitive to some viewers.
  • Overall, one of Pixar's darkest films, next to 'The Good Dinosaur', 'Toy Story 3' and 'Up', mainly because of the thematic elements and emotional moments.
  • It's implied that an elderly character has passed away off screen, though nothing explicit is shown.
  • Pepita's roar can startle viewers.
  • Many skeletons lose limbs and their skulls and other body pieces throughout the second half of the movie. Eyeballs also fall through the head into the mouth of one skeleton.
  • Pixar's #1 saddest film. Extremely emotional moments, deaths, (not graphic) intense moments, etc. I cried big time on it.
