Threat

Some scenes of mild threat from enemy aliens and people being sad as they are temporarily separated from loved ones, but everything is quickly and reassuringly resolved.

Comic slapstick is mild and involves characters being accidentally hit, but never realistically injured; there is no dwelling on anyone being in pain.

Other issues include some rude humour, such as the alien explaining that they also refer to going to the toilet as 'Number 1' and 'Number 2', but that they also have a 'Number 3', which involves taking a day off. There's also a scene in which the alien is shut into a drinks chiller cabinet in a supermarket, but he is soon released again and is visible through the glass door throughout.

SHAUN THE SHEEP THE MOVIE is an animated feature about a sheep who takes 'a day off' and has an adventure in the Big City.

Violence

Several sequences of mild slapstick, such as a bull charging at a man and sending him flying into the air and landing unscathed in a large pile of manure, and a big hole being made in a man's trousers after he is dragged along behind a speeding caravan.

Threat

Mild comic threat includes a man holding a scythe being silhouetted against the moon so that he briefly looks like the Grim Reaper, and a sequence in which the farm animals are trapped inside a shed which a bad character is trying to push over a cliff.

Further issues include rude humour, such as farting, a visual gag where it appears to onlookers that someone is urinating into a fountain (but we know this is not the case), and a lobster pinching a woman's buttock and her blaming a man standing nearby.

When the farm animals engage in potentially dangerous behaviour the dangers are made obvious. More information for grown-ups is available on the main BBFC website and the free BBFC app.
