Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this short movie is fun and quirky, but includes some sexual innuendo and a suprising death. The movie reverses the standard "hero" model, by focusing on Dr. Horrible, an evil villain bent on world domination who is hoping to win admission to the Evil League of Evil. Though his plans include stealing rare materials for his secret weapon, and attempting to kill his nemesis, the valiant Captain Hammer, inside Dr. Horrible is also a sweet, shy romantic, who has fallen in love with Penny, a girl he met at the laundromat. Captain Hammer, conversely, is a vain egomaniac who uses his hero status to get women into bed. There's some cartoonish violence and mild swearing ("ass"), as well as references to sex and one character's penis.

Sexual Content

Plenty of romance, awkward flirting, some sexual innuendo (talk of giving Penny "the night of her life"), and a few references to sex (including a mention of one character's penis).


Several scenes feature superhero action, including super-strength fistfights, freeze rays, and other unrealistic feats that have little impact on the participants, though there's one tragic, accidental death.


Some swearing, including "balls," "kick your ass," and references to being gay.

Social Behavior

The film flips convention by making Dr. Horrible, an evil villain, into the romantic hero of the story, while Captain Hammer, the do-good champion, is a callous and vain womanizer who capitalizes on his reputation to meet women.
