Luck | 2022 | G | – 1.2.1

content-ratingsWhy is “Luck” rated G? The MPAA rating does not include content details. The Kids-In-Mind.com evaluation includes many instances of near accidents without injuries, many discussions of bad luck, discussions of adoption and aging out of a care home, and some exclamations and name-calling. Read our parents’ guide below for details on sexual content, violence & strong language.


When an 18-year-old (voiced by Eva Noblezada) must move out of her group home and start a life on her own, she’s anxious to ensure that a young girl still in the home has every chance to find her forever family. She feels like she might have found the answer when she picks up a lucky penny on the sidewalk, meets a talking cat (voiced by Simon Pegg) and finds herself transported to the “Land of Luck.” Also with the voices of Jane Fonda, Whoopi Goldberg, Flula Borg, Lil Rel Howery, Colin O’Donoghue, John Ratzenberger and Adelynn Spoon. Directed by Peggy Holmes. Several lines of dialogue are spoken in German without translation and a couple of words are spoken in French without translation. [Running Time: 1:45]

Luck SEX/NUDITY 1

 – A unicorn and a dragon flirt and the unicorn kisses the dragon’s claw. A unicorn proposes to a dragon in the end credits. We hear that a unicorn and a dragon fell in love but then separated; the unicorn says, “She broke my heart.”

Luck VIOLENCE/GORE 2

 – A young girl is shown looking very sad and disappointed when people that were supposed to pick her up do not show up.
 A cat is shown with casts on two legs and using a crutch after we hear that he was run over by a tricycle. A cat and a young woman disappear through a glowing portal that opens on the ground and appear in another place where the cat yells at the young woman that humans cannot be there. A young woman jumps on the roof of a moving vehicle and the driver stops and yells at her. Many rabbits wearing hazmat suits search an area for a speck of bad luck when a program is disrupted. A young woman jumps through a passageway and is told she will have to adjust to a gravity shift between the “Land of Luck” and the “Land of Bad Luck.” We hear that the “Land of Bad Luck” is home to roots and goblins and we see several monster-type characters. A young woman opens a small door and beetles skitter out of the opening. A young woman lowers herself through a passageway by a rope and falls some distance chased by a heavy ball before climbing through a small door. A dragon gasps and coughs when she sniffs out a speck of bad luck on the bottom of a young woman’s shoe and the dragon sprays a fire extinguisher into her mouth to put out flames; rabbits wearing hazmat suits arrive to remove the speck. Pipes filled with glowing specks of bad luck are backed up and spurt out crystals all around, contaminating everything and people panic until the machine can be fixed.
 A young woman chases a cat into a street, along sidewalks, she is snagged by a tow truck hook as it drives along the road, she follows the cat into an alley and onto a fire escape, and she jumps off and lands in a dumpster. A young woman follows a cat along a path of moving discs and walkways and she dangles over the side when she can’t get her footing and eventually hangs upside down when her belt is snagged on a post. A young woman dances and is knocked to the ground when a cardboard star falls off a string and hits her (she is not harmed) and when she is on the ground a ball bounces and hits her in the head. A young woman drops her keys into a street and they fall into a manhole. A young woman jumps on a table to close a window before leaves are blown into her room, she catches a lamp before it falls on the floor, and she stumbles and steps onto a wheeled chair and falls back onto a Murphy bed that closes on her (she gets out and is not harmed). A young woman closes her bathroom door and a broom falls across the handle locking her inside; she manages to open it but the doorknob falls on her foot and she yelps. A young woman’s bicycle has a flat tire and her pump handle breaks when she tries to inflate it. A young woman accidentally knocks a shelf filled with glitter containers off a wall and glitter sprays all around, she then drops and chases spools of ribbon across a floor, she gets stuck on a tall shelf and the ladder she was using rolls away; she also opens a box of cactuses and ends up with them stuck to her. A young woman sitting on a small stool spins out of control on a track knocking many others off their stools and disrupting what they are doing (we see a couple of people flung against a window and their faces are smashed against the glass with no permanent injuries shown). A bartender slides drinks along a bar top and they fall off and shatter several times.
 A man’s voice yells at a cat and tells it to get away and “Take your bad luck with you.” A cat talks about the potential of being banished from the “Land of Luck.” A woman says that a cat gives her the “heebie-jeebies.” A dragon talks about people living a miserable existence without luck and she says that good luck is joy and hope. A woman accuses a cat of obstructing justice. A cat is told, “We thought you were dead.” A character says, “Bad luck teaches you to pivot.”
 A drone is shown covered with brown goo after going into a sewer. We hear a toilet flush in a bathroom (we do not see any waste). People talk about “dog poop” and signs read, “stepped in it,” and “tracked it in the house.” A young woman holds her nose implying that an area smells of dog waste. A young woman makes toast and after putting jelly on it, and it flips off the counter and sticks to the wall, smearing jelly on the wall. A young woman ends up with a smudge of jam on her nose after making toast. A young woman drops a penny and we see it in a toilet bowl; when she tries to fish it out, it is flushed away.

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.
