The Pebble and the Penguin | 1995 | G | - 1.3.1

An animated feature with the voices of Martin Short, James Belushi and Tim Curry. A penguin tries to win the heart of his beloved by finding a special pebble and presenting it to her.

SEX/NUDITY 1 - In an animated Pink Panther cartoon (shown before "The Pebble and the Penguin") an animated woman runs out of a department store with only her underwear on. The penguins talk about love and mating and there are some hugs.

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - The aforementioned Pink Panther cartoon features car chases, yelling, and Pink Panther getting knocked around. In the main feature, a penguin is shoved, threatened and falls down a few times; he is thrown into the ocean, taken aboard a ship and caged; and he encounters seals and a killer whale who nearly eat him.

LANGUAGE 1 - Many insults and taunts between the penguins, but no profanity. There is a veiled reference to an offensive gesture during the Pink Panther cartoon.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Mating, predators, kidnapping.

MESSAGE - It's worth waiting and fighting for that special someone.

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.
