The Prince of Egypt | 1998 | PG | - 1.4.1

A DreamWorks SKG animated drama depicting the story of Moses. Voices of Val Kilmer, Michelle Pfeiffer, Sandra Bullock, Jeff Goldblum, Danny Glover and James Woods.

SEX/NUDITY 1 - A kiss on the cheek. Most of the men are dressed only in loincloths. In one scene, we see a man being showered and vigorously scrubbed by several women; when they're finished, he covers his groin with a towel.

VIOLENCE/GORE 4 - Soldiers shove and whip men; we see scars on some men's backs. A man is whipped repeatedly. A soldier is pushed off a scaffold, hits the ground and dies. A few times we see soldiers pushing women. Soldiers take babies from their mothers and throw them into the sea where two alligators with open mouths are waiting; several times during the movie we see a mural depicting this scene. Hippos snap their teeth and wrestle in the water, nearly overturning a basket carrying a baby; also, an alligator nearly eats the basket. A "tornado" of fire keeps knife-wielding soldiers from massacring a group of people; later, we see the soldiers swept away and drowned by rushing water. A man is buried up to his hair in sand during a wind storm; a camel bites a chunk of his hair and pulls him out of the sand, then spits water on his face. Two men drive their chariots recklessly; they nearly knock a man off a scaffold. Some men are nearly hit by a large falling stone. A woman tries to bite a man's finger. A man slaps a woman. We see a man, a woman and two animals tied up. A woman sprawls into a puddle. A snake eats two other snakes. People brush blood on their doors. We see a boy run into a house, fall down (we see his limp arm through the doorway) and die. A sea turns into blood. Swarms of bugs crawl on and fly around a city's residents. We see people with pink spots all over their bodies (presumably sores). Also, the tone of God's threatening voice is at times quite scary.

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.
