Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in Barbie In The Nutcracker...

Overall: B
Imagine Toy Story II meets Fantasia 2000, and you’ll have a good idea of what to expect from Barbie’s first movie. This version supplies more plot and violence than the traditional rendition, which may be a concern to purists and very young viewers. Other than the obvious marketing ploy, the film may also sell its predominantly female audience on ballet too.

Violence: B
Evil Mouse King uses magic scepter to cast spells, such as shrinking a character or turning others into stone. Wooden character’s arm occasionally detaches. Spear-carrying soldiers threaten characters. Characters engage in sword fighting. Fleeing characters climb garland that fails under their weight. Snowballs thrown at characters. Stone monster destroys things he stomps on while pursuing characters. Characters captured and imprisoned. Wooden character threatened with being splintered into kindling and set on fire.

Sexual Content: A
Depictions of unmarried couple holding hands, dancing together, and kissing. Some characters wear ballet style costumes.

Language: A

Alcohol / Drug Use: A
