PADDINGTON 2 is a comedy adventure sequel in which Paddington Bear gets into unexpected trouble when he attempts to buy a very special birthday present.

Threat

There are scenes in which Paddington is rescued from drowning, first as a cub as he floats on a log heading for rapids, and then when he is trapped in a train carriage that has fallen into a river. Although there is some tension and a sense of danger in both scenes, this is quite brief and the outcome is reassuring. There are also scenes of comic threat, played as slapstick, with characters attempting to cross from one moving train to another or making escapes along the top of trains, and Paddington facing the displeasure of prison inmates. The outcomes are all, once again, reassuring and no-one comes to any harm.

There is a scene in which a story is being told of a trapeze artist who fell to her doom after her equipment is sabotaged. The scene is very brief and without details of injury.

There is also very mild slapstick violence with fairground props, including floppy swords and a gun that fires plastic darts, being used as ineffectual weapons.

There is also a comic scene in which Paddington uses a pair of electric toothbrushes to clean his ears, nostrils and teeth.

There is infrequent use of very mild bad language such as 'bottoms' and 'oh my God'.

ONLY THE BRAVE is a US drama, based on the true story of the 2013 Yarnell Hill Fire in Arizona, in which a team of firefighters battle a dangerous blaze.

Threat

Firefighters tackle dangerous wildfires, resulting in occasional sequences of moderate threat. More prolonged and intense threat occurs when a team of firefighters are fatally trapped by a wall of flames. There is no on-screen death or serious injury.

Drugs

There are infrequent scenes of drug misuse in addition to multiple verbal references to drug addiction. The film as a whole does not condone drug misuse.

Theme

In scenes of moderate intensity, people grieve after learning of the deaths of their loved-ones.

Language

There is infrequent use of strong language and milder terms. There is also infrequent use of the rude 'middle finger' gesture.

Infrequent moderate sex references include a scene in which a man persuades a woman to say something 'nasty' to him over the phone; we do not hear her response. A man describes 'hooking up' with a woman.

Other issues include brief sight of a moderately bloody puncture wound after a man is bitten by a snake. There are infrequent mild visual and verbal references to animal cruelty, when a rescued horse is shown with healing scrapes on its body. There are also brief images of a severed tail after a rattlesnake is killed off-screen; the images are not bloody or gory. Another scene contains brief rear nudity when a man 'moons' his colleagues.
