Sex & Nudity

  • A character takes off her shirt to reveal she's wearing a tank top underneath. Some cleavage is shown.
  • No real nudity or sex.
  • Aside from some cleavage shots, the worst the movie gets is a couple characters kissing.

Violence & Gore

  • All of the death scenes are incredibly graphic and gory. Even saying that is an understatement.
  • This movie is extremely eerie, gory, and violent! If you hate gory movies, then this is NOT the movie for you. ALL DEATHS IN THE MOVIE ARE GRISLY AND GORY!
  • All of the violence and gore is VERY tongue in cheek and not to be taken seriously at all.

Profanity

  • There's a few religous explitives like "damn" and "hell". "Dick" is said a few times and so is "asshole". "Bitch" is used three times.
  • Not a single F bomb is dropped, but there is two uses of "shit" in the same scene. That's about it with the controversial profanities.
  • Other than the religious and genital profanities, the movie mostly has tame name-calling like "Scumbag" and "Weirdo".

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Stevie is caught drinking alcohol, and when he's onstage he's fully drunk (but is sobered up after Drooper knocks him off a speaker).
  • There's a quick quip said by Fleegle about smoking after putting out a burning corpse.
  • Andy smokes a cigar, and is the only time he is seen smoking.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Some younger audiences may be scared or uncomfortable around the designs of the Banana Splits, especially when parts of their costumes are off the exoskeleton.
  • Though very silly, all the deaths are GRAPHIC with even some being hard to watch even if you're a gore-hound. Kids and younger audiences should NOT watch the movie after the 30 minute mark when the movie becomes violent.
  • People who grew up with the original Banana Splits show will find this movie unsettling or disturbing. Especially if they have fond memories of watching it.
  • Snorky's death may be sad to some.
  • Fleegle is scary.
  • All of the violence and gore is VERY tongue in cheek and not to be taken seriously at all.

Spoilers

The Parents Guide items below may give away important plot points.

Sex & Nudity

  • It's revealed that Mitch has been cheating on his wife by sleeping with his assistant. While his wife is scrolling through his phone we see provocative pictures but no nudity.

Violence & Gore

  • Stevie has a giant spiral lollipop shoved down his throat by Drooper, he graphically chokes up a lot of blood. His corpse is later lit on fire infront of traumatized children during the climax.
  • Thadd is shoved into a trick box and sawn in half by Fleegle, the box is then pulled apart and we graphically see his intestines and insides pour out all over the stage.
  • Jonathan has his face set on fire, we see the nasty aftermath. He later has his back ripped open by a key, his spine is exposed. Afterwards he's immediately thrown off the stage balcony.
  • The gate security guard has his head decapitated off screen, his head gorily falls off when someone tries to turn him around to get his attention.
  • Rebecca has her fingers broken and twited, and later has her face smashed in with a hammer; we see the bloody aftermath including her eyeball hanging out.
  • Mitch is run over a Banana Buggie twice; the second time gorily killing him (as a call back to his earlier statement about his son almost meeting the same fate early in the movie.)
  • Doug is found with drumsticks impaled through his eyes.
  • The entire adult audience of the show is found brutally massacred in a hallway.
  • Poppy slashes Karl's throat with a bladed glove. This occurs off-screen but we see blood splatter.
  • Andy is revealed to be pinned on a make shift wheel of endings in the climax (blood already covering his palms and shoes). The wheel then lands on "Banana Split", where he is then gorily ripped limb from limb while screaming in immense pain.
  • Drooper and Fleegle get impaled through the head, Fleegle with a crowbar and Drooper with a bladed wand that Harley got as a present early in the movie. (Drooper bleeds out liquid cooler, which is basically animatronic blood.)
  • There's a minute long fight scene between Snorky and Bingo when Bingo corners Beth and her kids in the studio basement (after climax). Snorky crushes Bingo's legs and tears off his arm. But then he rips out Snorky's "heart" and Snorky uses the last of his strength to pop Bingo's head open. Though because they're robots, there's no blood or gore. (But like Drooper, when Snorky gets his heart pulled out, liquid cooler spills all over the place.)
  • Fleegle has his exoskeleton shown at the climax, we see his robotic face. May be creepy to some children and younger audiences.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Stevie (before his death) is seen drinking alcoholic substances, and even spits some in Drooper's face.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The part where Beth, Austin, Poppie, and Paige find the brutally massacred adult audience can ick out some people despite their bodies being quickly on screen.
  • Some people may be affected by Snorky's death, but may find it funny because he speaks in honks.
