Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Shaun the Sheep Movie is the full-length spin-off of Aardman Animation's same-named short-form TV series. There's no actual dialogue -- just animal noises, exaggerated gestures, and evocative music. It's appropriate for older preschoolers mature enough not to be bothered by brief scenes of mild peril (a cruel animal control officer is after the farm animals and uses a weapon-like device with a claw-like attachment that can discharge electricity). While no characters are seriously injured, there's one tense/frightening sequence when it seems the animals will plunge to their deaths. There's also some silly potty humor (fart, poop, pee jokes) and a photo of a nude man (all sensitive parts are covered by a chair), but overall this is a sweet little adventure that's fine for almost all ages, with positive messages about teamwork, friendship, and acknowledging and fixing your mistakes.

Sexual Content

Violence

The animal control officer takes pleasure in grabbing animals and keeping them caged. He uses a device to collar the animals and is bent on hurting them -- to the point of wanting to push them over a quarry. He tries out his scary-looking tool (which looks like a gun, has a menacing claw attachment, and discharges electricity) on a teddy bear, with destructive results). A climactic scene between him and the animals is a tense/frightening, but everything ends up OK. A little lamb starts crying. A surgery scene shows a scalpel about to cut skin.

Language

No discernable dialogue, but lots of potty humor (fart, burp, and poop jokes).

Social Behavior

The animals learn to work together, to trust and protect new friends, and to help Farmer remember who he is to them -- and what they mean to him. The sheep also learn that the grass isn't always greener on the other side, and that it's important to fix your mistakes.

Consumerism

Nothing in the movie, but some tie-in products are available.
