MPAA Rated R for strong violence and language throughout, and some sexual and drug material

Sex & Nudity

  • Roman's home is filled with nude art.
  • A woman is asked to get on a table in public and take her dress off. Her dress is cut off and her bra and underwear are partially exposed. The camera doesn't fully focus on either. The act is more about humiliation, not sexual.

Violence & Gore

  • Huntress shoots people with a bow and arrow. People fall on the ground and there is a small amount of blood shown from the impact.
  • Harley smacks one man's leg with a baseball bat. His leg is shown twisted at an opposite angle briefly. Then she smacks his other leg. A brief crunching noise is heard as well as his yells and falls on the floor. Not too graphic.
  • In an extended fight scene, Harley raids a police station and shoots many cops with a gun- however all of these blasts are non-lethal paintballs, confetti, gas canisters, and large marbles and nobody is killed.
  • Harley sets a man's beard on fire. He is then shown screaming and batting at the fire as it grows. Comical
  • Harley shoots a man in the head. Mild blood is shown briefly out of his head.
  • In one of the more brutal kills, Huntress shoots a man in the neck with an arrow as he is struggling with another person. The person wrestles against his grip for a while, as he tries to stop her and strangle her. Huntress then shoots him in the head and he falls forward and dies. A bit graphic and some brief blood
  • The violence is mostly comical and some brief brutality
  • Harley jumps on a man's outstretched legs and breaks knees. A bit graphic but no blood
  • Harley fights several goons and caves-in one man's head with a baseball bat. Another man runs towards her but she throws the bat at him and he does a backflip, landing on his head.
  • Huntress tackles a man and the two slip down a slide. She lands on top of him and stabs him three times. Some blood but it is shown from a distance.
  • Hyena is briefly seen eating a mans torn off limb
  • Sionis backhands Harley in the face twice and she has a split lip.
  • There is a lot of violence but it is all comical and only some is a bit graphic
  • A grenade is planted on a man. He's thrown off a pier and we see the body explode before it hits the water. We see blood but it's not that graphic or brutal
  • A crime scene shows four dead men with bloody wounds sitting and lying around a table in a restaurant; we see a person approach the table, she shoots one man and the others draw their weapons and shoot at her as she shoots and stabs the others and one man is struck by an arrow in the throat (he gurgles as he dies).
  • Not that bad. The violence is bloody but not that brutal. 13+ if they can handle blood
  • This movie is pretty tame for an R rated crime movie, the violence is comical


  • 78 uses of "fuck", 25 uses of "shit", and around 5 each of "hell", "damn", "piss", "bastard" and one use of "slut" and one use of "cunt"
  • The language is around the same level as films like Deadpool

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Harley is hiding behind a stack of kilos of cocaine as gang members shoot at her. The drug dust drifts all around her face and puts her in a hyper, crazed state.
  • Harley Quinn is drunk in multiple scenes.
  • Harley Quinn offers a teenage girl a margarita, but a cop takes it away from the girl.
  • Some drinking is shown. Characters are shown drunk.
  • Very brief smoking

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • This movie is very intense and despite its black comedy, it has lots of graphic bloody violence. The film also tends to be dark at times due to its graphic violence and subject matter.
  • Huntress's origin story could be sad and disturbing for some viewers though most of it is handled in a sardonically humorous manner.


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

Sex & Nudity

  • The main antagonist tells a young woman to get on a table and dance. A few minutes later, he has her boyfriend rip off her dress. Her bra and underwear are shown. (Reminiscent of a stripper)
  • Harley is drunk and a man tries to shove her into a van.:)

Violence & Gore

  • A man cuts off another man's face. You see him pull the blade out but it's pulled off offscreen. You see him holding the face from a distance and he drops it on the ground, making a splashing sound. He then proceeds (but is not shown) to cut off two other people's faces.
  • Harley pushes a man off of a bridge and pins a grenade on him. He falls off the pier and explodes. His limbs and organs are briefly shown being blown apart in the small explosion and the water below the pier turns red with his blood.
  • The main villian string henchman tells a woman to cut open a little girl to get a diamond that she swallowed near to the end of the movie.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Early in the movie, the main villain and his henchman cut off one person's face, slit another's throat, and it is implied they cut off one more face- that of a little girl.
  • When Roman slaps Harley in the face in her head she becomes Marilyn Monroe and sings and dances to a eerie version of "Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend" during this scene there is a loud gun shooting and the scene is very freaky and eerie. This scene could frighten viewers but it's not that bad.
