Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this movie has some fun moments that will appeal to kids (especially those into the Indiana Jones movies), although it may be too talky for some. There is some PG-level profanity, violence involving guns, and a rather condescending portrayal of native people.

Sexual Content

Flynn does not take a hint easily. He lusts after Nicole, who wears tight clothes. Women are objects of desire.


The Serpent Brotherhood uses guns to threaten their target. They inject poison into Marshall's neck. They even point guns at monks at a Buddhist temple. Flynn's geeky passes at Nicole provoke her to violence. She slaps him, threatens him with a machete, and tells him, "I hate you so much."


PG level: "I hate a kiss ass," "don't piss them off," "damned good," "don't screw with me."

Social Behavior

Portrayal of native people in the Amazon is unrealistic (they speak Portuguese that deep in the Amazon?) and condescending (their native dress, dancing, and adornments are stereotyped).


The Metropolitan Library and its supposed treasures are touted.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Nicole has a glass of champagne on the airplane.
