VIOLENCE/GORE 4 - A TV screen shows some ninja/superhero-type fighting. On the show a kid is tossed off a cliff and saved by a flying superhero. Cartoon-style slapstick violence: A toy store manager gets trampled by customers, a man is knocked down by a mailbag, a man falls and lands flat on his back, an all-out brawl takes place and a man gets pepper spray in the eyes and gets beaten by purses. A man fights a gang of ninja Santas and knocks them down with a big candy cane. Giant Santas knock an elf across a room, beat a man, and pile on another man. A man is knocked in the head with a telephone receiver and choked, a man slugs a reindeer in the jaw, hot coffee is spilled on a cop's face, a woman hits a man with a thermos bottle, a superhero/super-villain battle breaks out, projectiles are shot at a man, a man is kicked between the legs by a kid. A bomb explodes off-screen, leaving victims with burn marks, but otherwise only stunned. Cops point guns at two men. A kid climbs up the side of a building and eventually falls off, but is saved. In a fantasy scene, a child drinks whiskey mixed with coffee.

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.
