Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that the film includes some scenes in the dark woods that might be frightening for younger viewers. The brothers argue and sometimes fight physically. Characters drink and behave boisterously (it's 19th-century rural Germany). Language includes German and French versions of "s--t" as well as some slang for "breasts." The brothers' investigation centers on kidnapped girls, producing spooky, sometimes violent images (in particular, a girl is whisked into a well by a black blob and a horse eats a child, in silhouette). Creatures in the forest include tree roots that grab at passers-by and a gigantic wolf. A powerful witch looks alternately ancient and beautiful, casting spells and wreaking havoc.
Sexual references, some bawdy drunkenness, a couple of kisses.
Witches cast spells, magical creatures assault humans, some sword and hand to hand fighting.
Mild, one use of s-word.
Brothers are charlatans, until they meet up with a real curse; some arguing, some abuses of authority.
Thematic only: the brothers "market" themselves as curse-banishers.
