There is quite a bit of language in this movie. Personally it doesn't bother me because it is the typical British language. Oh and there is a comment about Eliza going to live with Prof. Higgins and not wanting "any clothes". Eliza's father sings a song about finally having to marry Eliza's mother. Nothing is explicit, but for younger children it might want to be previewed before you allow them to watch it.
This beat "Mary Poppins" for Best Picture? Ridiculous. This movie had some fairly catchy songs, but the dialogue is laughable and was an hour WAY TOO long. I don't recommend it, though it was better than "An American in Paris."

awful... just, AWFUL!
Wow, this movie is not even trying, I mean really, Mrs. Doolittle can't even pronounce her vowels, that is something that she should have learned in kindergarten, (oh wait, maybe she is so dumb that she cannot even get in kindergarten!)
Although this is a classic it has a lot of swearing and says d--- about ten times-and NOT just as an introduction to a song. Prf. Higgins is really rude to Eliza, calls her terrible names all the time and has no regard for anyone below his class. The end of the movie is SO disappointing and the two main characters make a terrible couple. There is some sexual references such as Eliza "not needing any clothes" and her father not marrying Eliza's mother. Mr. Doolittle is a TERRIBLE role model! He sings a song specifically about why you should be lazy and do exactly what you are NOT supposed to do! He cares nothing for his daughter except that she provides him with money to get drunk!
Although there is a lot of good songs and acting in this movie, there is not a whole lot to be gained from watching it.
