Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull doesn't live up to the best of the series, but Indy-loving kids will definitely want to see it. It bears the marks of classic Indy fare -- meaning lots of adventures, some of which (like a scene involving killer ants, or another involving an atomic bomb test) might be too spooky for younger kids. There's a supernatural and extra-terrestrial undercurrent and lots of punch-heavy good-guy-versus-bad-guy fights, which do have some blood (as well as plenty of weapons, including swords and guns). There's also a bit of light swearing ("s--t," "son of a bitch," etc.) and innuendo, and enemies routinely hurl unpleasant threats at each other. But it's all handed with roguish, acerbic Indy wit, which makes it -- for the most part -- all in good, popcorn movie fun.

Sexual Content

Some sexual banter, but nothing terribly lewd.

Violence

Characters shoot at each other; there's lots of punching, kicking, and shoving; swords are pointed at enemies' throats; characters attack each other with guns and swords from moving cars in one extended scene. Minor characters are killed in various ways -- gunfire, falls, crashes, etc. One group goes out in flames when a powerful rocket ignites. A few parts may scare young kids -- especially a sequence in which a sea of killer ants engulfs victims, or an early scene in which Indy is nearly the victim of an atomic bomb test (scary images of mushroom clouds and exploding houses/mannequins). Lots of skulls and mummies and other spooky-for-young-children elements.

Language

A few uses of words like "bulls--t," "shut up," "son of a bitch," and "damn." One or two "s--t"s.

Social Behavior

Although there's plenty of havoc (and even some double-crosses that endanger Indy), it all appears to be for the greater good. Ingenuity, teamwork, and trying to do the right thing are ultimately rewarded, although some of Indy's methods are iffy.

Consumerism

Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

One character appears inebriated at one point, but it's just implied.
