Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this adaptation of Alice in Wonderland contains elements of absurdity and the surreal that could make it potentially frightening for younger viewers. With its casual references to beheading, some nonsensical scenes such as a baby turning into a pig, Alice shrinking and expanding, and an overall otherworldly logic, it risks being more confusing than fun.

Sexual Content

Not applicable


The violence in Alice in Wonderland is minimal, but there is enough surreal absurdity and casual references to beheading to warrant a warning for young kids. In a few scenes, Alice grabs a large bird by the neck. In another, a hedgehog is used for a ball in croquet. When Alice is small, she often faces peril, as when she's chased by larger animals, such as a dog.

Social Behavior

Alice in Wonderland espouses the value of curiosity, problem-solving, and courage in the face of fear.


Alice in Wonderland is a well-established story associated with any number of characters, books, games, and other themed items marketed to children for decades, but this movie in particular has no specifically associated merchandise.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Alice drinks unknown liquids which make her shrink and expand. She eats mushrooms to return to a normal size. In one scene with the Mad Hatter, wine is offered to Alice, only to be rescinded due to her age.
