Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that nature documentary Monkey Kingdom is family friendly overall but does have a few scenes that could frighten preschool-aged viewers. While Maya, the monkey who's presented as the main character of the story, and her baby remain safe, other members of her clan of macaques do die -- one to an alligator and one to a warring monkey clan. There are also tense moments when it seems like Maya's baby will be hurt, and Maya herself is beaten by more prominent monkeys. On the lighter side, there are strong positive messages about motherhood and sacrifice, and -- thanks in part to Tina Fey's narration -- humor and laughs for the whole family. And on an educational note, everyone will learn a good deal about Sri Lankan macaques.

Sexual Content

Violence

Violent, disturbing sequences of Maya getting beaten and of her newborn being kidnapped as she's driven away. A violent confrontation between monkey clans leaves one monkey dead and others injured (blood is visible). Another monkey falls victim to a predator. One alpha male has a scarred face and a split lip that make him extra scary looking.

Language

Not applicable

Social Behavior

Family-friendly messages about a mother's ability to overcome obstacles to protect her baby and the responsibility of all members of a tribe to protect one another from external threats. A tribute to motherhood and the sacrifices parents make to keep their babies safe and well-fed.
