Over the Moon | 2020 | PG | – 1.3.1

content-ratingsWhy is “Over the Moon” rated PG? The MPAA rating has been assigned for “some thematic elements and mild action.” Our evaluation includes a story of love and romance, a hugging scene and a flirting scene, the death of a parent, several risky acts undertaken by a girl with space travel and encountering space creatures, several arguments and discussions of deep despair after the loss of a loved one, and some name-calling. Read our parents’ guide below for details on sexual content, violence & strong language.


Animated musical about a young girl (voiced by Cathy Ang) enamored with the Moon, and the stories of a Moon goddess that her mother shared with her, that decides to meet the goddess when her father wants to remarry after her mother’s untimely death; to do so she builds a rocket and launches herself into space for an adventure that will change her life. Also with the voices of Ken Jeong, Sandra Oh, Phillipa Soo, Robert G. Chiu, Kimiko Glenn, John Cho, Brittany Ishibashi, Conrad Ricamora and Margaret Cho. Directed by Glen Keane & John Kahrs. Several lines of dialogue are spoken in Mandarin without translation. [Running Time: 1:40]

Over the Moon SEX/NUDITY 1

 – A man and a woman hug and we hear about their love. A man and woman flirt and the man touches the woman’s hands tenderly. A man and woman sing a love song to each other and he touches her face tenderly. A boy and a girl hug (not romantically).

Over the Moon VIOLENCE/GORE 3

 – A woman stumbles and seems to be weak; we later see her using a cane, and then see her using a wheelchair and eventually we understand that she died.
 A girl prepares a rocket and straps herself and her rabbit into it, she speeds along a track, speeds past a train and launches off the ground and toward the Moon; the engines fail and the vessel floats in space with the girl, the rabbit, a boy and a frog floating weightless and they are caught in an energy beam that pulls them to the Moon’s surface, where we see them lying motionless among wreckage until they are grabbed by two glowing dragons and taken to a city. A girl jumps onto a flying motorcycle and bounces on its wheel before jumping between the handlebars and driving it and dodging meteors crashing to the surface around them. A boy is chased by glowing streams of light and surrounded by guards that take him to an “interrogation chamber.” A woman screams in frustration and sadness and she causes a meteor shower. Giant frogs pop out of the ground and sail through the sky; a small space creature’s tongue attaches to one of them and the creature and a girl are pulled along behind it. A boy runs toward a wall and yells, breaking through it (without injury). Two space dragons carry a boy and a girl and fly them from the Moon back to Earth.
 A girl builds several rockets and experiments with blasting them off the ground, we see pops and flashes, and she is blown back by the blast of a couple of them (without permanent injuries). A creature on a flying motorcycle grabs an item from a girl and flies away, the girl chases the creature and swings from floating structures to try to retrieve the item; she is thrown toward a bright light and a blast makes others think that she has been harmed (she’s hiding and is OK). A boy is challenged to a game of Ping-Pong by a woman and they play aggressively. A boy tries to slam through a wall and he is thrown to the ground. A rabbit shoots lasers from its ears to cut through a wall but is unable to cut through. A girl chases a boy and they both laugh. A rabbit sneezes and its ears glow and lasers shoot from them (no one is harmed). A girl on a bicycle nearly runs into a man.
 A boy plays leapfrog over a girl’s back and the girl is alarmed; the boy then puts his pet frog on the counter and the girl becomes upset. A rabbit jumps out a window and runs away with a girl following it. A girl climbs a hill and to the top of a structure while talking about a way for her to reach the Moon. A guard grabs a girl and she drops an amulet, but retrieves it safely. A boy says that he has superpowers and practices running through walls; he slams into several walls and bounces back onto the floor, insisting that he has actually moved through the wall.
 A boy throws a frog across a table and it splats onto a girl’s forehead. A woman makes a disparaging remark about her husband, as she breaks the shell off a crab at a dining table. A girl spins a lazy Susan around at a dining table and food is thrown off and some spills on a man’s lap. A boy hits a girl in the head with a Ping-Pong ball. A girl collapses on her keyboard after working all day. A girl bounces off her bead and onto the floor. A boy and a rabbit are upset with a girl and walk away from her when she is mean to the boy and yells at him. A woman cries and her tears become glowing bubble beings. A girl finds a glowing creature wearing a space helmet and riding in a lunar rover among her rocket’s wreckage and they leave together. A flashback shows a girl cutting all her hair off after her mother dies. A giant space dog holds and bites a satellite.
 All the light on the Moon is extinguished and we hear that a woman is in a “chamber of impenetrable sadness.” A girl seems upset about her father being with a woman after her mother died and she won’t talk to the woman or engage with her. A character says that another character was “kicked out of the palace.” A woman tells the story of a woman that took a magic potion that made her immortal but also took her away from her true love; she is the “Moon Goddess.” A woman talks about the phases of the Moon and we see animations of a giant dog in space biting a chunk of the Moon off; she then says that the Moon goddess makes the dog spit it out and the woman makes a spitting noise (i.e. bleh). A creature says that he is a “nervous talker” and he talks fast and rarely pauses.
 A space creature’s long tongue flops out of its mouth and it gets wrapped up in it and falls to the ground (there no injuries). A space creature wears an adult diaper and when another creature picks him up by the diaper, he falls out and onto the ground leaving the other creature holding the diaper and he says, “Ew” (we do not see anything in the diaper). We see several crabs in a bag and a few claws move before then seeing them served for a meal. A woman drops a bowl of dates on the floor. A woman mocks a girl’s haircut and plucks an eyebrow hair when they first meet. A girl bites into a mooncake and spits out a piece of Jade. A boy slips food off his plate and onto the ground accidentally.

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.
