BULA QUO! is a comedy adventure about two members of the rock group Status Quo who witness a game of Russian Roulette and then go on the run from a gangster who wants them brought to him. It is rated PG for mild violence, language and innuendo.

There are occasional scenes in which men are punched and kicked or hit over the head with saucepans, flip-flops and other objects. There are also scenes in which men are shot, although any impacts occur offscreen. The violence lacks detail and there is no sight of injuries. Most of the scenes are comic. There is also a Russian Roulette scene in which a character apparently shoots himself. The shooting is not shown, but the gunshot is heard as the moment is viewed on a laptop.

The film features infrequent mild innuendo. For example, a gangster who has captured a woman says "I hate to hear a woman tied up. Unless it's for..." as he suggestively looks at her. The man then takes a swing with a golf club and the woman says "You've got no balls". In another scene, a bomb is attached to a doll and a man comments that it is "a blow up doll".

There are some innocuous drug references. In one scene, a narrator refers to "the drinking of the strange hallucinogenic root",and in another scene a woman tells some men that what they are about to drink is a root that "can make you hallucinate. It's illegal in some countries". After a man drinks the concoction, there is no apparent hallucinogenic effect.

At one point a man exclaims "He's just blown the bloody dressing room up!".There is also some very mild bad language ('butt' and 'God').

PG stands for Parental Guidance. A PG film should not disturb a child aged around eight or older. However, parents are advised to consider whether the content may upset younger or more sensitive children.
