Does it have any bad words?

Unfortunately, there are a few bad words in the movie, but I have come to expect that from Marvel films. Thankfully it was on the milder side. Expect to hear sh*t, d*mn, and hell.


Given that it is a superhero movie, there is violence but nothing so bad that it will scare the kids. Although they may not like the Flerken given that they have tentacles and eat people (but if they saw Captain Marvel, they have already seen that). Oddly enough I didn’t find it too bad, I actually laughed while it happened, and while that sounds mean, you will better understand why once you see the movie.
