A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this movie.
This movie is intended as entertainment.
Fighting villains, saving their friends, saving the universe, working through differences, and cooperation are the main themes in this movie installment. Understanding one's inner-self is also addressed.
Positive Role Models
The Teen Titans Go! team appears young, immature, and often unprepared when compared to their older Teen Titans. But they are loyal to each other, and work together to defeat the villains. One character gets very jealous.
Violence & Scariness
There's lots of fight scenes that show kicking, punching, weapons fired, throwing people across rooms, and other violent acts (in animated form). No blood, but some characters are torn apart (and put back together). No one is really hurt in the end. A few characters are big and scary, especially those who come from the 2003 universe.

Sex, Romance & Nudity
Contains some mild innuendo, most of which will go over kids' heads. References are made to how tall and handsome a cast member is. A scene shows someone slapping the bare behind of a statue, and another shows a male cast member bare-chested. All of this is presented in a humorous context and most kids won't get it.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that the animated movie, Teen Titans Go! vs Teen Titans, features the 2003 and 2013 children's animated versions of the Teen Titan franchise. The humor is smart and quick-witted, and most of the edgier stuff will fly over the heads' of young viewers. There's some mild innuendo (references to being handsome, a slap of a statue's behind) and sometimes characters use terms like "butt head." The series also features a considerable amount of fantasy violence and some scary-looking characters, all of which may be too intense for young viewers.

Is It Any Good?
Teen Titan fans of all ages will enjoy this comical series, which combines the silly gags and irreverent banter of Teen Titans Go! with the more straight-laced heroics of the original team. Watching the characters learn more about their alternate selves is fun, as are the self-reflexive ways in which the franchise points to the range of fan reactions against the younger, but more contemporary, teen superheroes. Throughout it all, the sharp humor adds an edge that's bound to elicit a few chuckles among older viewers.
It's well-written and quick-witted, and even if you're not a TT fan, it's easy to follow the basic plot line. But if you enjoy Teen Titans or Teen Titans Go! (or *gasp* both) you will appreciate how smartly the two worlds are merged. You'll also be able to pick up on some of the more nuanced moments, which will be easily missed by those less familiar with the franchise. If you're looking for a fun animated story to enjoy, Teen Titans Go! vs Teen Titans is worth checking out.
