Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in Monsters vs. Aliens...

Susan’s life changes when a meteorite hits her on her wedding day. In addition to growing several stories tall, she is attacked by soldiers, tranquilized, tied up and imprisoned at a secure site. Later she is chased by aliens, as well as hit, pushed, and nearly crushed by a robot. Battles between humans and aliens include guns, missiles, bombs and the threat of nuclear weapons. Other characters are crushed, dropped, injured or ingested by a blob-like figure. A robot is decapitated by a bridge support beam. Armed clones prepare to invade the planet. A large ship explodes in mid-air. A helicopter crashes and burns. A man slaps a girl who later rescues him after he breaks an ankle. Buildings, vehicles, and a bridge are destroyed. The script contains infrequent mild profanities, a vulgar term for female anatomy and other mild crude humor. Agents pass through a security measure than includes a scan of their bare buttocks. A man soils his pants. A character is given a wedgie.
