Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that The World's End is an offbeat hybrid that starts out like a buddy comedy and ends up being a whole other kettle of fish. Like Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, which were made by the same director and stars, it's irreverent and unpredictable, which makes it truly enjoyable, but its edgy content means it's definitely best for older teens and up. Expect loads of drinking -- the movie is, after all, about an epic pub crawl gone very awry -- and scenes of violence (though they're cartoonish and played for laughs at times) with limbs coming off, explosions, outright melees, and the like. There's lots of swearing, including "f--k," "s--t," and much more.

Sexual Content

Brief allusions to a sexual encounter in a bathroom; some cleavage and heavy makeouts. Quick glimpse of a man's behind. Sexual references in language.

Violence

Lots of mostly cartoonish violence, including brutal fights in which arms are twisted, heads are kicked off, and cars explode. But they don't seem as brutal as they are because some of those involved don't bleed red but blue, making the aftermath seem more strange than gory.

Language

Very frequent use of a wide variety of strong language, including "f--k," "c--t," "c--k," "s--t," "piss," "balls," "hell," and more.

Social Behavior

Amid the raucous comedy, heavy drinking, and (cartoonish) violence is the underlying message that friendship will see you through even the very worst situations.

Consumerism

Some products/labels are mentioned and shown, especially by characters who seem fairly materialistic or affluent (or both): Nokia, Audi, Foster's Lager, Starbucks, Marlboro, Ford. And Cornetto ice cream makes an appearance, as it has in Pegg and Frost's other films, Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Part of the film's premise is five friends going on an elaborate pub crawl that has them downing a pint of beer (and sometimes shots of liquor) at 12 different bars. Also some mention of weed smoking and flashbacks showing teens drinking to excess.
