Why did it get this rating?

Violence

The film contains frequent, imaginative and highly-choreographed action-violence. Infliction of serious physical harm is shown to a high extent but low degree - it is often surreal and humorous, and no serious injuries are depicted.

Offensive language

Swear words and offensive language are used throughout the film, but to a low extent that is unlikely to harm younger viewers.

Sexual references

The film contains scenes where sex paraphernalia are used in non-sexual contexts for humorous effect. While this makes the film unsuitable for young children, the material is unlikely to be harmful to teenagers as the sexual meaning is akin to "toilet humour". The references will likely go over the heads of those who are not familiar with sex toys.

Content that may disturb

Characters are sometimes shown to be cruel to one another. There are instances of minor self-harm, and one character expresses an abstract desire for their life to end, but suicidal ideation is not explicitly stated. The effect of this is counteracted by the hopeful narrative of the film.

Further information

Two members of our Youth Advisory Panel were consulted during classification of the film.
