some language that i don't think is very good for the age csm says. 2 uses if the s-word they are both muttered(with headphones on full you can hear the second one) the most frequent word is a*s some other milder stuff. some younger kids may get upset because theres a tiger that wants to kill himself. the operation at the end is mildly intense you can see a bit of the open head. a man is punched in the face and is hit in the nose with a door. a funny movie but not for people over 9.

Funny movie about how animals can talk to Murphy!

Well, any Eddie Murphy TV show or movie is a fan of mine. He`s my favorite comedian. He`s hilarious along with the animals in the movie. A pigeon says "I prefer orange breasts", there`s a bit swearing as well. 1 use of friggin', t uses of ass, 3 uses of Hell, 1 use of Damn, and 1 use of S--t. Lots of funny things, no inappropriate violent stuff, though.

Wonderful movie

This movie is one of my favorite animal movies.I don't see why the stuff mentioned in this review is called adult themes. It's not adult themes, it's human themes.

Crude humor, suicide attempt

Funny but not 100% appropriate for young ones, he learns to love his family more and that is a good message but there is a tiger that attempts suicide as well as a surgery which might gross out younger kids. There is some moderate language but no sex or F words

Iffy jokes.

Brief sexual content and some launguage but overall a good movie.
