Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that The Angry Birds Movie is a loud, silly, sometimes crude -- and sometimes funny -- animated film based on the popular app. The main character, Red (Jason Sudeikis), is truly an angry bird: He tries to exist in polite society, but his bad attitude won't let him, so he's forced into anger-management class. As you might expect, there are plenty of scenes of birds being kicked, punched, and hurled through the air, as well as explosions. Eggs are stolen from their parent birds and put in peril, and their parents are visibly upset. There's also some drinking (out of coconuts, etc.) and few sexual situations/innuendoes (which will likely go over many kids' heads), including an unpleasant Peeping Tom scene. Language includes "idiot," "weirdos," quite a few "butt" jokes, and cursing stand-ins like "pluck my life." Although there's only one main female character, the movie has some messages about taking responsibility and not judging others. But mostly its goal is to be funny -- putting it squarely in the category of movies that kids will like and parents will tolerate.
Chase scenes, explosions, and birds being thrown into buildings. Birds and pigs are punched, kicked (including a baby bird), and shoved. Eggs are kidnapped and almost dropped into boiling water; parents cry about the lost eggs. A door opens to show twin pigs in matching outfits that say "redrum." Piggy planes attack birds. Red says to remember him when he's gone, and at one point it seems he might be dead. A bird couple cries when they think their egg has died.
No actual swearing, but stand-ins like "pluck my life," plus insults like "idiot" and "weirdos" and quite a few "butt" jokes.
Don't judge people before you know their story. Everyone has something to offer society. It's important to take responsibility for your actions.
Angry Birds is based on the wildly popular app that already has tons of merchandise associated with it, including clothing, toys, and much more.

A bird is in a bar and says, "drinks on me." There's a party scene where everyone is drinking out of coconuts. A wine bottle is in a gift basket. A subtle drug reference. Birds suck on helium balloons.
