Shaun the Sheep Movie | 2015 | PG | - 1.3.0

A precocious sheep decides he wants to take the day off from the farm and in trying to make that possible sets off a series of events that may change the farm forever if he and his friends can't get everyone back where they belong. Also with Justin Fletcher, John Sparkes, Omid Djalili, Richard Webber, Kate Harbour, Tim Hands, Andy Nyman, Simon Greenall, Emma Tate and Jack Paulson. Directed by Mark Burton & Richard Starzak. [1:25]

SEX/NUDITY 1 - We see a man's buttock cleavage when he bends over and his pants ride low in a couple of scenes. A man has a painting of himself hanging on a wall and we see him bare-chested. A man drops off the back of a camper and when we see him later, he is shown to be covered with grime and his pants have been worn away at the buttocks to reveal his jockey shorts.

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - A man throws a sheep toward a deep quarry and the sheep is caught before falling in. A bull charges a man and head-butts him across a deep quarry and into a pile of manure on the other side.
 A man falls asleep and is placed into a camper that accidentally rolls away and a dog and several sheep try to hold onto it and stop it from rolling away; the camper rolls through a golf course, it nearly runs over a hedgehog (it is unharmed), it rolls through a field and we see a cow pressed against the front of the vehicle before being thrown through the air (we do not see injuries); the camper rolls across railroad tracks just before a train passes and along a road where people run and jump out of its way before it runs into a curb, stops and the man sleeping inside wakes up, opens the door and a light cover hits him on the head knocking him unconscious (we see the man in the hospital with a bandage on his head later). A man on a sidewalk pushes down an elderly woman using a cane. A dog bites a man's ankle and the man yelps.
 A man carrying a scythe walks menacingly toward several sheep and dogs and they hide in an out-building; the man picks up the building using a piece of farm equipment and with the animals and another man inside, pushes it toward a quarry where it leans over the edge and the man tumbles out; a dog leans over to catch the man and the man dangles from the dog's ears until the building is pulled to safety. A man from an animal containment company captures a dog with a metal clamp and places it in a truck (we see the dog in a cage later); several sheep hide under a bus to evade being caught, then put on clothing to disguise themselves as human. A sheep in a restaurant and wearing a human's sweater that unravels is revealed to a be a sheep; many people in the restaurant scream and panic when they see him, restaurant staff chase him and several other sheep causing tables to overturn and one man ends up with a fish on his head and a lobster on his hand before the sheep is grabbed by a man with a metal clamp and he is taken away. Several people chase sheep on a street after they cause damage and knock people down. Dogs and sheep escape from cages and lock a man inside. Sheep and dogs climb up and across rooftops and slide down a construction chute. A man from an animal containment company practices with a powered capture device and we see a teddy bear singed by it. A man chases sheep and a dog across a roof and down a construction chute (he is not harmed). A man shoos sheep and dogs out of a shop and they run away and into a manhole.
 A dog disguised as a doctor enters an operating room and we see a patient prepped and on the table; the dog takes a surgical saw and moves close to the man's exposed abdomen to cut it, but is stopped by a woman who hands him a scalpel, then a man with a hammer flips it into the air and the patient yelps and runs away.
 Several sheep disguised as a horse whinny and rear toward a man who stumbles and falls into the back end of the horse head first (it resembles an anus); the man is pushed out by the sheep inside the costume and a cone that spews exhaust sticks out through the hole as the horse is propelled away with the man being dragged by a cable; the man is dragged into a fence and we see him with two panels on his feet like skis, and then the man crashes into a dumpster. A man dangles onto the back of a camper that has been tied to a bus and is being pulled along a road; the man drops off the camper and we do not see him until the camper stops and the man is shown to be covered with grime and his pants have been worn away at the buttocks to reveal his jockey shorts and some of his upper thighs.
 A doctor in a hospital notes that a man has memory loss after an accident, when the man is unable to identify what he does. Song lyrics include the phrase, "Scary things happen." We see a dog in a cage and he has "bark" and "bite" tattooed on his paws; a cat in a cage is shown to resemble Hannibal Lecter and the cat makes the sound the character in the Silence of the Lambs makes while another dog is shown to have reddened eyes and stares incessantly.
 A man prepares to sheer his sheep and they run away and dodge him until he finally manages to catch them and one sheep is left with an unusual haircut (the sheep seems angry about it and raises his fist toward the man). A man shears another man's hair in a salon as if he is a sheep and he is tackled by the man's bodyguard; people are alarmed by how much hair he cuts off, but the client is pleased.
 A bull charges toward a sheep and cuts a goat loose, who jumps on the roof of an out-building that then tips over. A mannequin's head falls off and a sheep is frightened and runs away. A dog on a road is nearly struck by a bus, but the driver stops and picks the dog up.
 A dog is squeezed behind an opening door in a few scenes (he does not appear harmed). A rooster trips and falls off a stone wall (no injury is seen). A dog sleeping in a dog house wakes up and hits its head on the door opening in a couple of scenes. A sheep puts food with a metal fork into the microwave and we see it spark and then explode (we see popcorn blow out of the oven and the sheep is charred around the face).
 A dog gags in a surgical mask when looking at a medical chart in an operating room. A baby sheep spits milk up onto a man's jacket after bottle feeding (we see a white blob on the jacket). A pig is seen picking its nose (we do not see debris). A man burps in a restaurant and several sheep at a nearby table burp loudly. A man sprays his clothed armpits in a few scenes (presumably with deodorant). A man flatulates in bed and the sheets lift up. A spider eats a fly and we see it pull a wing off the insect. A sheep kicks a wad of paper into a goat's mouth. A sheep eats a few hot peppers and screams from the heat. A small sheep eats a cake from a dessert cart in a restaurant and we see its face covered with the confection. A man eats some sheep fluff and spits it out (we see the wad come out of his mouth. A sheep waves a piece of manure under a sleeping man's nose to wake him.

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.
