PETER RABBIT is an updated adaptation of the Beatrix Potter story in which a rabbit tries to outwit a farmer and save his supply of food.

Threat

There is threat to the animals involving variety of makeshift weapons including garden implements and sticks of dynamite.

Violence

There is comic violence when Peter and the other animals fight the farmer, with lots of slapping and kicking.

There are some funny scenes where characters touch electrical fences, or get shocked, but no characters are ever hurt. In one scene characters throw blackberries at an adult. He is allergic to the berries and starts to choke. He immediately uses an epipen.
