Sing 2 SEX/NUDITY 1
– A husband pig and his wife pig kiss tenderly as their many piglets charge into a room. Two elephants sing and dance in a love scene and hold hands. An elephant is nervous about having to perform a love scene in a show and kissing someone. An elephant and a yak practice falling in love for a scene in a show and the elephant is uncomfortable when the yak is dismissive of her and claims that people fall in love with him all the time.
► A pig talks about a love scene in a show.
► A yak struts around a stage and thrusts his hips suggestively while singing. An elephant flirts with another elephant and hands her an ice cream cone; when they both hold the cone with their trunks the ice cream melts and the female elephant walks away and slams into a glass door.
► A character barges into a wolf’s room while he is sleeping and yells; the wolf is shown shirtless (we see his fur covered chest) and when he stands up in front of the first character we see his fur covered legs as the first character screams (implying that he sees the wolf’s genitals, which we do not see).
Sing 2 VIOLENCE/GORE 3
– a wolf rages, grabs a koala, takes him to a high structure, and throws him over the side (the koala is caught and unharmed). A wolf rages at a koala and holds him over a balcony high above the ground; the koala struggles to hold on and when the wolf drops him, he clings to his arm. A wolf grabs a koala by the throat and holds him off the ground while holding a fist toward him and yelling. A koala speeds on a bicycle next to a taxi trying to convince the passenger to consider his show; when the taxi speeds away, the bicycle sails along the road and jumps into a canal where the koala is shown riding on the back of a large creature (we see him drenched but OK later). Several animals disguise themselves as cleaners and slowly ride on a floor cleaner to sneak past a receptionist in a lobby and get to a producer’s office; the machine nearly tips over with all the animals clinging to the side and out of sight and a lizard’s eyeball rubs on the floor and spins. A giraffe slips on a floor and kicks a chicken across the room (no injuries are shown). A pig has a panic attack when she walks to the end of a ramp high off the ground where she has to jump and swing around on a cable. A choreographer uses a stick to hit dancers when they do not perform well. Two characters are zapped by an electric fence and are thrown back on the ground unconscious (we see one character with his hands bandaged as he regains consciousness). Two character swing on cables around a space stage set and one slams into a set piece planet (no injuries are shown but he moans). A wolf yells and throws something at a big screen shattering it, when he sees something that upsets him. A gorilla and a tiger fight with long sticks surrounded by a ring of fire during a show; a proboscis monkey takes the stage and fights with the gorilla knocking him to the floor and the gorilla regains his composure and defeats the monkey. Two groups of security guards fight each other with punches and throws (there are no injuries; one group ends up on the floor).
► A lizard speeds in a car, drives off the road and up a wooded mountain road to a barricade with razor wire and a no-trespassing sign; she crosses the barricade setting off alarms and the property owner speeds out on a motorcycle and shoots her with a paint gun, splattering her with paint and knocking one of her eyes out (she picks up an apple and puts it in the vacant eye socket not realizing that it is not the eye and we see her wearing an eye patch later). Several characters jump over a balcony and into water, they slide down a water slide and run through woods to escape several security guards chasing them. An elephant runs through dark woods and seems afraid, she trips and falls on the ground and then into a deep hole where she sees a tiny door that expands and she walks through it to see brightly colored animals dressed in costumes and they all sing and dance. A lizard returns a rental car in shambles and the airbag deploys as she talks to the attendant. A tiger and a gorilla dance and practice fight with long sticks and the gorilla falls on the floor. A lion sprays a koala with a hose and he tumbles down a hill (he is not harmed). A koala panics when someone knocks at his door and zips himself inside a suitcase to hide. A lizard collapses when a lion speaks to her in a grumbling tone. A fox chases a bus and tells a troupe that a theater wants to host their show.
► A wolf is locked into an enclosure and he is released by his assistant. A character barges into a wolf’s room while he is sleeping and yells (please see the Sex/Nudity category for more details). A wolf yells and kicks things around in his office. A lion drops a loose eyeball (it belongs to a lizard) onto the lap of a koala. A receptionist rudely turns a group of performers away at a lobby desk. A porcupine walks out on her encore when the theater manager won’t pay her the same scale as other acts.
► A lion grumbles at a porcupine and a koala when they confront him about living as a recluse and invite him to join their show. A wolf growls, snarls, yells at a koala, and accuses him of lying. A wolf rages and tells a koala that his show set is a disgrace (he says he’s kidding). A wolf threatens a koala saying that if he embarrasses him, “I’ll throw you off the roof.” A wolf watches auditions and uses a loud buzzer to dismiss them when he is not impressed; the assistant tells the groups, “Leave immediately.” A wolf runs out of an office yelling, “Go to heck” and saying, “You’re firing me?” and, “You all hate me.” A fox tells a koala that his show isn’t good enough. Song lyrics include, “We’re all gonna die.” A character sings, “Dance ’til you’re dead.” A wolf tells a staff member, “Be useful or be gone.” Characters talk about a singer’s wife dying and that he became a recluse. A wolf tells a koala, “Don’t screw up, or else.” A character is asked, “What’s wrong with you? Do you have a kink in your think?” A proboscis monkey says, “I will eat my hat.” A pig and a wolf talk about landing on a planet of war in a space stage production. A lion freezes and says that he is not ready as he approaches a stage; he recovers and is OK.
► Many piglets run rampant through a food buffet and spill food and dishes onto the floor; one piglet is shown swimming in a chocolate fountain. A koala uses a hand dryer in a restroom to dry himself after falling into a canal and we see him with a very fluffy head of fur. A frog spits something out onto a control board. A lizard trips, her eye pops out and she chases it.
