What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this feature-length version of the 1990s Nickelodeon animated series Rugrats does not shy away from gross-out sight gags. On two occasions, birds poop on characters' heads. Characters burp, make reference to "cutting the cheese." Every time the dog sneezes, mucous either hangs out of his nose or the mucous hits another character. This same dog is seen trying to "do its business" with its hind leg raised. Babies pick their noses; they try to eat millipedes. There is also some cartoonish violence -- a character is hit on the head with a coconut, a tiny ship is overturned during a raging storm in the middle of the ocean, sending the characters swimming for their lives.
