Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in Miss Pettigrew Lives For A Day...

This British comedy looks at one remarkable day in the life of Miss Pettigrew, a London governess who finds herself out of work and desperate for a new situation. Sexual content is the greatest concern with a leading female character having relationships with three men—one of whom we see lying naked in her bed (nude buttocks are shown). A freshly bathed woman is seen from the front holding a towel (her hips and the side of her body are exposed). Language is limited to a half dozen mild profanities. Some veiled sexual innuendos are heard. Men exchange punches with one another. Air raid sirens are heard causing people to seek shelter in a nightclub. Many characters are seen smoking tobacco products.

Home Video Viewing Alternatives

Here are some ideas for home video titles that are related to Miss Pettigrew Lives For A Day.

Another governess undergoes a remarkable transformation in the family-friendly film Nanny McPhee. Pretending to be someone rather more regal than her real peasant self also leads to trouble and romance in the movie Ever After.
