content-ratingsWhy is “The Angry Birds Movie 2” rated PG? The MPAA rating has been assigned for “rude humor and action.” The Kids-In-Mind.com evaluation includes an off-screen kiss between eagles, a few references to romance and broken relationships, and some pig nudity; scenes of peril and near destruction with one implied death and a few non-fatal injuries; a bar scene and a wedding reception scene with beer and champagne (or cider) drinking; and some mild language and name-calling. Read our parents’ guide below for details on sexual content, violence & strong language.”


Sequel to 2016’s The Angry Birds Movie: The flightless birds and the scheming green pigs have to collaborate when their neighboring islands are threatened with destruction. With the voices of Jason Sudeikis, Josh Gad, Leslie Jones, Bill Hader, Rachel Bloom, Awkwafina, Sterling K. Brown, Eugenio Derbez, Tiffany Haddish, Danny McBride, Peter Dinklage, Pete Davidson, Zach Woods, Dove Cameron and Maya Rudolph. Directed by Thurop Van Orman. [Running Time: 1:36]

The Angry Birds Movie 2 SEX/NUDITY 1

 – Two eagles kiss off-screen after they are married as attendees say, “Get it mighty eagle” and “That’s disgusting.” Two birds deny being “love birds.” Two birds seem to be embracing in one scene but move away quickly when others remark about it. Two birds hold hands. A love song plays while a seal and a small dog trapped in a block of ice look at each other; the seal tells the dog, “I’ll wait for you.” A male bird thinks a female bird is flirting with him as she moves toward him until she opens a hatch behind him. A scene shows birds “speed dating” and one female bird does what she calls a “mating dance” with gyrating hips and flipping head feathers; another bird asks a bird about his feelings, favorite color, etc., determining that they are not compatible.
 A bird tells another bird about his sister, “Don’t love her too much” (please see the Violence/Gore category for more details). A reference is made to “love at first sight.” An eagle sings to another eagle expressing his love for her.
 A few scenes focus on the buttocks and tails of pigs, and a pig wears thong underwear in one scene. We see several selfies of a pig with a few of poses and one shows the pig wearing heart print boxers, bent over and someone else identifies it as a “butt shot.” An eagle flexes its abdominals in a couple of scenes (they make sounds like a gun cocking). Three pigs wear spandex outfits.

The Angry Birds Movie 2 VIOLENCE/GORE 3

 – Giant lava filled boulders are launched at islands and burst into flames when they crash on the ground (birds and pigs run screaming); we see a mime bird struck by one (we don’t see it again). A giant boulder of ice sails through the sky toward a mountain top where birds and pigs run toward a cliff and an eagle grabs them and flies away as the boulder slams into the top of the mountain. A string of giant lava filled ice boulders are launched out of a chute, they are held by a string, the string breaks and a few hatchlings hold the ends until the boulders fall back into the chute and explode causing rubble to be thrown and an eagle cries over her daughter that she thinks is dead (she is not). Giant boulders of ice crash into the ocean near two islands.
 A bird grabs an eagle’s keycard on an elastic cable and it snaps back hitting the eagle in the back of the head, slamming it into a door, into a sink and into a wall knocking it unconscious (we see a broken beak, missing teeth and bruised eyes); a paper towel dispenser falls off the wall and onto its head later. A pig arrives at the door of a bird startling it; the bird slams the door and the pig puts its head through the window where the bird hits it with books and dishes, and we see the pig wrapped with ropes on the floor where it talks to the bird and convinces it that they need to declare a truce. Several pigs break through the roof of a bird’s house and lower themselves by cables, and one pig crashes through the wall. Two eagles bungee jump and the bungee snaps; we see the eagles with several casts in hospital beds after the fall. A pig touches a lava tube (it’s very hot) and an eagle nearby asks, “Anybody smell bacon?” (we see the pig’s flesh reddened and it yells). Lava streams into ice boulders and are prepared for launch and when one boulder melts we hear a scream implying that an eagle was burned by the lava. A small dog is broken out of a cube of ice and it sails through the air crashing into frigid water where it is entrapped in another block of ice.
 Several scenes show birds on “Bird Island” and pigs on “Pig Island” pranking each other: a whipped cream pie is launched from one island to the other striking a duck in the face, a bottle of hot sauce is launched and knocks a pig off-screen, sunlight is focused on several balloons causing them to pop and a hatchling cries, the same light pops a bouncy house and throws other hatchlings to the ground where they cry, many crabs are dropped from the air onto birds and the birds are pinched and flutter around yelling, and a giant wave floods over an island causing pigs to be tossed around under water. A bird draws a face on a pig’s back with red marker. A bird rubs its knuckles on its sister’s head and they later have tickle fights in a couple of scenes.
 Two birds in an ice boulder maneuver on a chute to avoid being sprayed with lava. An eagle transporting several birds and pigs crashes into the side of a mountain and they fall before grabbing onto the corners of a map that acts as a parachute; the map tears and they fall fast toward the ground until one of them stitches up the hole (no injuries are seen). Two birds climb a sheer rock wall and one slips, and the other reaches to help the first and it refuses help. Two hatchlings blow a third hatchling up like a balloon and they float toward a cloud, then past the cloud and high into the atmosphere unable to release the air in the hatchling until they reach a satellite and the antennae unties a tie around the bird’s beak; the three birds plummet down to Earth and they burst into flames when they re-enter the atmosphere, they crash into the ocean, where the flames are extinguished, and no injuries are seen. Two birds jump into a chute using a cable and dangle above armed guards below; one bird cuts a power cord causing alarms to blare. Three eggs roll onto a coiled boa constrictor and three hatchlings attack the snake (we see them wearing snake skin boots, a belt and trim on a hat after). Three bird eggs float away from an island on a raft and three hatchlings on shore row out to rescue them; they reach the eggs and are lifted out of the water on a whale’s back and the whale spouts a blast of water that shoots the three eggs up and onto a cloud. Several birds and pigs wearing a costume trip over barrels and fall on the floor trying to go unnoticed. Three hatchlings float away on a raft and three older birds faint.
 When a bird sneezes or is startled it causes an explosion (its name is “Bomb”). A flashback shows a bird at different ages being ignored or mocked and laughed at by others. A bird tells another bird that he has “resting bird face.” An eagle runs away screaming in one scene without explanation. Three birds sing emotional lines from an opera (they are untranslated) and they have tears in their eyes. An eagle is shown alone on an altar as another eagle tells the story of abandoning the eagle. An eagle flexes its abdominals in a couple of scenes (they make sounds like a gun cocking). A small dog is shown trapped in a block of ice throughout the majority of the movie. Three eggs hatch and we see snakes pop out as three hatchlings watch in dismay. An adult snake wearing a neck brace knocks on the door of a bird house where her three children have just hatched and the snake returns three hatchlings to the birds inside the house.
 A hatchling apparently spews a string of expletives accompanied by a ship’s horn blaring to bleep the words. An eagle talks about, “Clearing out all these inhabitants” on two islands occupied by birds and pigs. A reference is made to an engineer being tortured and we see an eagle with its two wings and two legs frozen in blocks of ice. Two birds are shown with their wings and feet frozen into openings in pool floats. An invisibility spray is tested on a “guinea pig” and it disappears; we are then told that the invisibility effects will last “forever.” A reference is made to testing a gadget by burying several characters alive (this does not happen). A character threatens to “Kick your butts.” A bird tells another bird about his sister, “Don’t love her too much or I’ll break every bone in your body” as its voice deepens and shakes with anger. An eagle says that it “Had to discipline” someone. Several birds and pigs in a costume are approached by armed eagles and one character in the costume says, “We’re so dead.” An eagle yells at another eagle. Bird islanders call out to a bird, “Don’t screw this up, ” and, “If we die, it’s kinda your fault.” An eagle reads a book entitled, “Crazy Rich Avians.” A comment is made about someone, “Flippin’ ripped your heart strings right out.”
 An eagle stands at a urinal and we hear the trickle of urine; a bird pretends to be urinating in the next urinal by spraying water out of its beak and making noises. Vessels filled with green slimy goo are called “pig snot” and we see two birds smearing themselves with it, one licks some off its finger and we later see a bird swimming in a large vat of green goo. A pig uses the bathroom in a bird’s house and we hear the toilet flush, the pig’s stomach rumbles as it exits and it runs back into the bathroom clenching its buttocks. During a break dance battle a costume of a bird pushes a small pig out from a hole in the fabric that resembles an anus and the pig climbs back into the hole. A bird lies on its back as popcorn pops out of a pot and into its mouth, he pours melted butter from a measuring cup and sprinkles salt in his mouth and we see its abdomen swollen. A young bird licks an ice cream cone filled with pink worms and when the worms fall off the cone they slither away. A bird sailing through the air slurps a worm from a cup of coffee. During a speed dating session a bird tells another bird, “I eat dirt” and when it opens its mouth it coughs dirt out onto a table where another bird is seated and she says, “ew.” A sleeping bird has drool on its face. We see a drawing of an eagle seated on a toilet.

 – Teamwork usually saves the day.

(Note: An animated short film entitled “Hair Love” shown prior to the feature includes a few scenes of a child’s hair being combed by her father and the hair is uncooperative causing a comb to be thrown in the man’s face, and a ponytail elastic slapping him in the eye (no injuries are shown) after the man imagines wrestling a hank of hair in a ring; we see a woman in a hospital wheelchair with a scarf on her head and when she removes the scarf we see that she has lost her hair (implying that it’s due to illness but we do not know any details.)

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
