Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this movie, based on an 18th-century book of tall tales and directed by Monty Python alum Terry Gilliam, has some fairly edgy content. Though it's steeped heavily in fantasy, there are still graphic scenes of battle with many explosions, sporadic beheadings and near executions, scenes of a harem with some shots of naked women, and a creepy Angel of Death.
Brief female nudity (a bare backside and hazy shots of breasts), scenes of a harem, kissing, and heavy sexual innuendo, including two jealous husbands and a character who sounds like she's about to have an orgasm (though her feet are getting tickled instead).
Many scenes of battle, lots of explosions, beheadings, and torture, though they are surreal and strangely bloodless. A creepy, skeleton-faced Angel of Death tries to take the Baron on numerous occasions.
"Hell" and "damnit."
Epic efforts to reunite friends in order to defend a town under siege underpin the story, but just as much screen time given over to lust, selfishness, and avarice. The Turkish sultan and his army are depicted as cartoonishly evil.
