NoticesAdd a Notice
Other: A male rear-end is shown twice, but not in a sexual manner.
Frightening or Intense Scenes: The accidental shooting of a human being in the leg with a crossbow (although it's played for laughs and shown in the trailers and TV ads, so I'm not sure how frightening or intense one may deem this scene)
