Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this movie includes a very tame relationship between George and Ursula. There's also some sexual innuendo (Coffee, Tea, or Me, mating rituals of apes, female excitement over George's physique, etc.). The film also includes poop jokes, flatulence, wedgies, and similar potty humor.
- Sexual Content
- George only wears a loincloth. Romantic relationship between George and Ursula. Humorous scene that explains the behaviors of monkey mating. Funny reference to Coffee, Tea, and Me. Implied nudity.
- Slapstick violence (falling, running into trees, racking one's self on a tree branch), professional wrestling-style fight with a lion, threat of a lion attack. The film jokingly states that no one dies in this film; they just get really big boo boos. Poaching of a friendly ape.
- Not applicable
- Social Behavior
- The good and bad guys are clearly marked. Lyle treats the natives in a terribly condescending manner, but the "primitives" are actually more advanced and intelligent than the ignorant white "civilized" men. Max and Thor travel to the jungle to exploit the people and animals; however, the film clearly marks George, Ursula, the natives, and the animals as kinder, more open-minded, and more advanced.
- Nike is shown onscreen.
- Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
- A character drinks coffee and experiences a major caffeine high.
