Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this spoofy comedy is up to its Dark Helmet in off-color jokes, sexual innuendo, and potty humor. When you're not giggling, you might cringe at the kind of humor it inspires in your tweens ... but, then again, they've probably seen a lot iffier stuff than this.

Sexual Content

Not too much is shown, but there's plenty of innuendo. Lots of groin-related jokes, the most explicit when Dark Helmet and Lone Starr activate their Schwartzes while cupping privates. President Skroob is shown in bed with a pair of twins. Much is made of preserving Princess Vespa's virginity.


Some cartoonish combat/violence. Princess Vespa shoots a group of enemy soldiers with a ray gun. Dark Helmet uses "The Schwartz" to inflict pain on a man's genitalia; he and Lone Starr have a battle with their respective Schwartzes.


A fair bit of strong language, with "s--t" being the most frequent. "F--k" is uttered once by Dark Helmet.

Social Behavior

The movie is always irreverent and often crude, but the core story has the good guys triumphing, love conquering all, and friendship persevering.


The movie mocks excessive movie commercialism. Lone Starr pilots a Winnebago, and Princess Vespa's ship is a Mercedes.
