Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this animated, musical version of Romeo and Juliet is meant for little kids. Starring seals and other sea creatures, the film sticks to the basic story of the original at least some of the time, but changes the play's tragic ending. Only a few speeches have any relationship to Shakespeare's English; the rest of the dialogue is casual and current. Numerous scenes show the seals fighting, chasing, and threatening one another, falling into the ocean's depths, and isolated in captivity. Several characters are either "missing in action" or appear to be dead; a long time passes before it's revealed that they are still alive and well. There are lots of insults directed at the overweight leader of the seals; he's taunted for his size and called "blubber-butt." Some kids may be put off by the incessant "smooching" of Romeo and Juliet -- they're innocent kisses, but there are many of them.

Sexual Content

Romeo and Juliet nuzzle a lot and exchange many chaste kisses.

Violence

Exaggerated cartoon action throughout. The villainous seal prince roars and bears his teeth, bites, and threatens the heroes. The Capulets and Montagues (two seal families) chase each other, bark, bite, and on some occasions fight in the manner of dogs and cats. Characters are swallowed by larger fish, fall from heights, are thrown into the ocean, and banished to the scary "Shark Island." Romeo, Juliet, and Mercutio (Romeo's friend) are all believed to be dead for a period of time. Romeo and Juliet lie unmoving for several minutes. Mercutio disappears in the ocean after a fight. There are no obvious injuries; everyone is alive and well in time for the movie's happy ending.

Language

"Blubber-butt" and multiple fat jokes are aimed at the leader of the seals.

Social Behavior

Hatred between families (or cultures or nations or "colors") breeds war, bigotry, and unhappiness.

Consumerism

Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

The Friar makes a potion for Juliet that will make her appear to be dead; in fact, she'll only be sleeping.
