Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this movie includes multiple references to dead bodies, skeletons, decay, and death, though all in good fun. The corpse bride's eye pops out occasionally, to show the talking maggot who lives inside and offers romantic advice. The story concerns a young man and woman who meet for a marriage arranged by their parents, both families in need of money. The young man's betrothal to the corpse bride leads him to contemplate his own death, in order to fit in with her friends. Song and dance numbers feature skeletons, corpses, and ghosts. Both sets of parents are using their children to achieve money and status. And when the live bride-to-be asks the local pastor for help, the film raises questions concerning the effectiveness of organized religion.
Some scariness (crows in trees, talking skeletons, and dead bodies with rotting flesh and maggots).
Some spicy sayings but nothing too out of line.
Love and selflessness are presented neatly in this quirky fairy tale.
Drugs / Tobacco /
The skeletons drink, but it's clearly fantasy.
