Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that 101 Dalmatians is the 1996 live-action remake starring Glenn Close as Cruella De Vil. Cruella De Vil is played to the over-the-top hilt in this one: She's never without a cigarette in a holder, and she's constantly demanding that the titular dalmatians be dog-napped and skinned to make a fur coat. There is frequent pratfall comedic violence throughout the movie. The two bumbling puppy thieves are shown falling on an electric fence and getting their groins electrocuted before they're violently thrown off. The two protagonists are shown being tugged by their respective dalmatians while riding their bikes, avoiding several near-collisions and crashes before riding out of control into bodies of water.

Pratfall violence. Two bumbling dog thieves fall on top of an electric fence; there's a close-up of their groins being electrocuted before they're violently thrown off the fence. Characters run into each other, fall into frozen water, and fall into vats of molasses. Two of the protagonists are tugged by their dalmatians while on bikes; this results in several near crashes and collisions before they finally fall into bodies of water. A woman hits a man in the face with a purse filled with bricks, knocking him on his back. Cruella De Vil is shown sticking a pitchfork in hay where a puppy is trying to hide. Open talk throughout of skinning dalmatian puppies to make a fur coat.
