Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that while there are scenes in this film in which the Potts family members and others are in jeopardy, they are fantasy sequences filled with comic pratfalls, exaggerated action (Grandpa, in his outhouse-like hideaway carried away by a zeppelin; a baroness shot into the sky and retrieved by canon shots letting the air out of her billowing skirt), and arch clown-like villains with twirling mustaches, and one even wielding a hook. Only the very youngest or most apprehensive children may find the images scary; other kids will understand the intent and likely find it funny. There is an entire kingdom made up of buffoonish Germanic stereotypes who are more bumbling than menacing.

Sexual Content

One romantic kiss as a man asks his sweetheart to marry him.

Violence

All of the action is exaggerated and clownish; no one is injured or killed. A couple of minor car crashes occur in a sequence showing very early 1900s auto racing. One car catches on fire. An experiment with a rocket ends when it sparks and catches fire, briefly putting its inventor at risk. In a fantasy story-within-a-story, the Potts and friends end up in danger in a fictional kingdom. There are numerous pratfalls, pirate attacks, canon fire, and dynamite, an evil "child catcher," two farcical villains who try lots of cartoon measures to capture the Potts family, and a lengthy comic battle between soldiers and our heroes, who fight alongside an army of children.

Language

One use of "ass."

Social Behavior

There's beauty and worth to be found in even the most unconventional people. The most valuable part of life is having people to love and care for and being loved and cared for in return. Even failure can be a positive experience if you learn from your mistakes ¿- "from the ashes of disaster come the roses of success." And finally, dreams can come true, but you have to be practical, too.
