Great Movie

Most of the violence is cartoonish but in a couple of scenes the violence is intense but not too intense. Kid treatened. Refrenced that a guys testicles fall out. Guy gets covered in dog crud. Great movie for kids 9 and up.

Should have been rated PG-13.

No films that include off-screen castration and off-screen indecent exposure after his boxers being ripped off should ever receive a PG rating at all. Oh, my God! What was MPAA thinking? Avoid the childish title at all costs. It’s like a wolf in sheep’s clothing. Even 1968’s Barbarella should have earn an R rating on DVD.

This title has:

Too much sex
