SEX/NUDITY 1 - A kiss; a girl wears a midriff-revealing top.

VIOLENCE/GORE 2 - Nearly all played for laughs: A muppet is struck with what looks like a lightning bolt and gets a slight shock; a few other muppets get mildly shocked, too. A muppet is restrained on a table, ready for a doctor to suck his brain out of his head (the "surgery" doesn't take place). A shove, a few punches, and two fistfights between a muppet and a human that include some face punches, a headlock and leglock, hair-pulling and a kick in the crotch (in one of the fights, the human is later seen tied up). A muppet is shoved into a wall when a door is opened, knocked out of a window and grabbed by the shirt. It's implied that a cat was hit by a lawnmower (we just hear it yelp). A muppet is shot into the air and falls back down to the ground, but isn't harmed. A mild verbal threat and a couple instances of mild threatening with guns and "space" guns. A muppet puts his finger up his nose.

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.
