Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway SEX/NUDITY 1

 – A man and a woman kiss at their wedding. Men and women dance in a video. A boy and a girl look at each other flirtatiously in a couple of scenes.
 A man describes another man’s eyes as “Eyes you could lose an afternoon in.” A hedgehog describes herself as “eye candy.” A hedgehog says, “I smell a rat,” while standing next to a rat and then says, “I like it.” A mouse talks about having had 15 kids in a month and wonders why a human couple hasn’t yet had any children.
 Women wear low-cut dresses that reveal cleavage and shoulders in a wedding scene.

Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway VIOLENCE/GORE 3

 – A rabbit imagines attacking a man, kicking him a few times, and leaving the man floating from helium balloons high into the air; he also imagines other animals attacking other people and destroying a wedding tent. A rabbit pushes over a sign and it accidentally breaks a storefront window. Two rabbits and several other animals booby-trap a house and when a woman returns home, a cat jumps on the woman’s face; the woman runs into the kitchen chasing the cat and slams into the freezer door that is opened, she is sprayed in the face by a bottle of champagne, and she steps into two toy trucks and slams into the front door as the animals run away. A woman is pulled out of a car by police officers and carried away in a video. Several animals knock out and otherwise incapacitate several farmers in a market. A display of wheels of cheese is tipped over, they roll into a boy knocking him to the ground and a man and his tomato display are also knocked down. A deer pulls a cart filled with barrels of dried fruit through a crowded farmers market and jumps over a van. A rabbit jumps out of a moving vehicle and tumbles on the ground unharmed as he sees several other animals being taken away in cages. A truck rolls unattended down a hill and a man chases it and jumps on top of it before being dragged until it crashes into a parked vehicle.
 A rabbit walking alone on a sidewalk is splashed by a passing car driving through a puddle, he is bumped by a woman carrying a large bag, and walks through wet cement and falls into it (we see him covered with cement and trudging heavily before it breaks away). A pig is wrapped with a rope around its waist and is lifted into the air as a rabbit tells another rabbit to “Take care of him”; the second rabbit becomes nervous and refuses to cause the pig harm (they were joking). A man shoves a rabbit and reprimands him. A rabbit catches a badger stealing tomatoes from a garden and makes him return them. A man sees a rabbit touching tomatoes in his garden and assumes that the rabbit is stealing them. A pig talks about passing judgment and makes a comment about a woman’s hair. A rabbit steals fruit from a market and when another rabbit causes a lot of fruit to fall off a display, the two are chased by a woman swinging a broom at them; the animals hide in a mailbox, jump out at the mail carrier when he opens the door and then hide in a recycling sorter where the mail carrier and the first woman play a whack a mole with them before pulling them out by the ears and taken away by animal control. Farmers kick and swat animals away as they are loading their trucks with produce. A fox chases a rabbit and the rabbit convinces him to stop chasing him and that he should take up running instead. A rabbit accidentally elbows another rabbit in the nose. A rabbit nibbles on a girl’s heel (we see slight tooth marks). People in a gym are shown sparring and practicing boxing moves; one man falls over the ring ropes and lands hard on the mat, and one man punches another man in the face knocking him out of the ring (we do not see injuries). Animals plan and prepare for a robbery at a farmers market. Several animals with ropes tied around their waists are dragged behind a truck and they jump onto the bumper.
 Two rabbits in a cage are jostled around while being carried by a child; two children take the rabbits out of the cage, throw them in the air (one rabbit accidentally kicks the other in the face), bathe them, blow them dry, dress them up and the rabbits talk about being humiliated. Two rabbits break out of a cage and root through a refrigerator gathering food in a large pile. Two rabbits watch scenery speed by while on a train and they fall over from getting dizzy. A rabbit eats a large bowl of candy and jumps around a train car from the sugar before collapsing and falling asleep; she holds onto the outside of a train car window and pretends to be blown away, and then reappears on the window. A rabbit eats a bowl of jellybeans and calls them “magic beans” as she races around a market. A rooster jumps off a fence and slams to the ground when he remembers that he cannot fly (no permanent injuries are shown). Rabbits roll down a hill and when a man tries the same maneuver he ends up rolling out of control and bouncing into the air several times (no injuries are shown). Rabbits hang onto the roof of a speeding taxi and are blown around in the air. A rabbit climbs along a rope between two boats to retrieve another rabbit; they release the boat’s motor and ride it back to the other boat. Two rabbits hold their paws over a flashlight and react as if they are burned. A man prepares a pot to stew a rabbit in (he does not stew it). A man and three rabbits jump out of a plane and parachute to a moving car where the parachute attaches to a deer and pulls it into the air. A pig is retrieved from a meat freezer and taken away in a car; the butcher chases on a motorcycle until he is shot by a hedgehog shooting its quills at him. A man panics when he sees a mounted deer head in a room and thinks that it is the deer he is trying to find (it is not).
 A rooster yells at other roosters to get up and bring in the day by waking the fireball in the sky. A rabbit talks about being emotionally evolved. A rooster says that he is questioning his very existence when the sun comes up even though he has not crowed.
 A rabbit picks a spoiled apple from a tree and no other rabbit will take a bite from it; the first rabbit bites into it, spits, and coughs. A mouse rolls a large wheel of cheese along a sidewalk. A cat asks for a bathroom.

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.
