Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Red Dog is the story about the loss of a pet. The setting is the hardscrabble Australian Outback, and there's a great deal of drinking, scrappiness, some violence, a scene of attempted suicide, and a few deaths. The dog is called "cheeky bastard" and "dirty filthy whoring ham." There are also numerous visual gags/references to farts. The film is most appropriate for older kids, but it does have positive messages about pet loyalty and friendship that families will appreciate.
- Sexual Content
- A couple kisses sensually in two scenes. In another, a couple is shown waking up in bed together in the morning and kissing. A man imagines a woman giving birth, her legs extended in the air, but nothing graphic is revealed.
- There are scenes of fist-fights, threats of physical violence, an attempted suicide, and a few instances of death or injury referenced, but not shown. In one scene, a dog is shot, but survives. In another, a man dies in a motorcycle accident.

Drunkenness is not depicted per se, nor is the booze shown as the cause of the violence or general roughhousing, but it's always present.
