Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this fairytale-spoofing sequel is full of double-meaning jokes for kids and adults, as well as loads of cartoonish, action-style violence. Both the heroes and the villains know how to fight -- with their fists, feet, and fancy weapons. A couple of minor characters seem to be crushed or fall to their presumed deaths, but there's more property damage than actual injuries, and no overt deaths. There's also one use of "damn" and a fair bit of "insult" language ("stupid," "doodie," "shut up," etc.), and some families may be bothered by the somewhat stereotypical way that an ogre and a giant are portrayed. That said, there are a few positive life lessons about redemption and collaboration, not to mention that most of the best agents are female (like Granny and Red).
- Sexual Content
- Two female squirrel visitors come out of Squirrely's mobile home to kiss him good-bye.
- Animated violence, trickery, and deceit includes martial arts-style confrontations, two overgrown characters that wreak havoc on a city (turning over vehicles, demolishing buildings), a giant that pounds and squashes things (as well as a character or two), and a group of pig thugs that uses weapons to try to eliminate their targets (via explosions, guns, car chases). Some characters are injured, but except for one villain who plunges to his (presumed) death, no one really seems to die. It's all intended to be very cartoonish and humorous.
- One "damn," plus insults including "shut up," "doodie," "stupid," "little girl," "loser," and more. The word "muffins" is used as a stand-in for curse words.
- Social Behavior
- The two major storylines make the point that being "number two" doesn't mean you're a failure unless you yourself believe that, that it's always OK to need help, and that you shouldn't let your pride get in the way of helping others. But the depiction of the Italian mob boss-like giant and the Eddie Murphy-imitating ogre might disturb some audience members. While not overtly racist, they could be off-putting to some viewers.
