Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Ladyhawke is a dopey 1985 romantic fantasy that will probably bore most kids and sorely try the patience of most grown-ups. Expect the slashing and impaling common to cinematic portrayals of medieval violence. Blood drips from a victim's mouth but is otherwise scarce. Several people are stabbed or pierced with arrows. One falls though ice into a wintry pond. There is a drunk priest and some mild profanity ("hell" and "damn").

Sexual Content

A kiss. A bishop is obsessed with a beautiful woman.


Two men joust. Numerous soldiers shoot arrows at each other; several are seen wounded, although little blood is shown. Soldiers punch and kick each other. Several men are impaled on swords. One bleeds from his mouth in close-up. A man falls through ice into a frigid pond, and people dramatically try to get him out. There are close-ups of an angry wolf growling. A hawk is wounded by an arrow. Someone pulls an arrow out of a woman's chest, and she screams. A spot of blood is seen on her sheet.


"Damn," "hell."
