Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Dudley Do-Right is the 1999 live-action movie starring Brendan Fraser as the beloved Canadian Mountie from the classic 1960s cartoon. While, like the cartoon, there are lots of puns and slapstick, there's also some humor that could be inappropriate for younger kids. For instance, a pigeon lands on Snidely Whiplash's head and defecates; also, a recurring joke shows Dudley Do-Right's horse audibly passing gas. Aside from this, there is some drinking -- one of the main characters acts very drunk then is shown waking up the next morning moving slowly, moaning, and complaining about his hangover. There is also cartoonish violence with guns and cannons.
