Why Is Where the Wild Things Are Rated PG?
Although based on a book aimed at young children, this movie depicts several moments of peril and strong action adventure. A child argues with and bites his parent before running away. He is sad after older children smash his snow fort while he is inside of it. He acts out when his mom’s boyfriend comes to dinner. He experiences danger while in a boat on a rough sea and later while climbing a steep cliff. He is chased by creatures that threaten to eat him and later hides inside of a monster’s stomach. Characters are injured while playing "war" with dirt clods. One character has his arm torn off. Several characters express anger, abusive behavior or jealousy. An adult couple kisses briefly and is shown with alcoholic beverages. The script includes very infrequent profanities.
