age 15+
The main movie contains some violence with some blood but not R levels of blood sexual content is mild and fuck is said so for that I’d say 12+ but due to the blu-Ray containing the short film simply (tit)led catwoman I’d don’t think it would be suitable for 12+ the short in question mostly takes place in a strip club. A character in underwear does a pole dance and takes of her bra offscreen, another scene depicts Catwoman pole dancing before unzipping he skin tight cat suit revealing her cleavage and that she doesn’t have nipples because the animators thought it was too edgy although it was already too edgy.

This title has:

Too much sex
