Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that there are some serious themes in this outrageous film: a young married couple comes to grips with the fact that they're dead, and a teenager contemplates suicide. Some of the imagery is pretty creepy, and there's some strong language to be aware of (both "s--t" and "f--k" are used). But there's nothing here that tweens and up can't laugh at.

Sexual Content

A miniature Beetlejuice finds a whorehouse in a model-sized city; some women invite him inside.

Violence

A woman blows cigarette smoke out of her slit throat. An afterlife waiting room abounds with people in various states of deadness (but it's more funny than scary). Main characters are chased by giant striped worms in a desert. A teen shrivels up like a mummy in a matter of seconds. The teen also contemplates suicide.

Language

A couple of uses of "s--t" and two "f--k"s (one is hard to hear).

Social Behavior

The characters eventually learn to live together peacefully but this is more ancedotal than a deliberate positive message.
