Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that there's nothing very objectionable in this classic film. There's a scene in which the princess tries her first cigarette and another including a frenetic brawl on a barge. Both the male and female leads are good role models by the end of the film. Younger children will be able to follow the plot easily.
- Sexual Content
- Very mild innuendo.
- A large (but relatively civilized) fight breaks out between government agents and dancers on a barge.
- Not applicable
- Social Behavior
- Themes include the importance of honesty and integrity.
- Not applicable
- Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
- Characters smoke cigarettes. Main characters also drink champagne and wine but do not act intoxicated while doing so. A young woman seems like she's drunk -- falling asleep on a bench, slurring her speech, and tripping over her words, and, although the lead male character suspects she's been drinking, she's actually been given sleeping pills.

- Depends on your kid and your family
- Not appropriate for kids of the age most likely to want to see it
