MADAGASCAR 3 - EUROPE'S MOST WANTED is an animated sequel about a group of domesticated wild animals trying to return from the wild to their home zoo in New York. The film is rated PG for mild slapstick violence.

The film contains several chase sequences in which the animals are pursued by armed police. The sequences are always comic in tone with no serious threat to the animals. When they team up with a group of travelling circus animals, some tensions emerge and a knife throwing tiger aims several daggers close to the main characters. None of the knives ever hit an animal. A small group of puppies are portrayed comically as being gruff voiced thugs and at one point a puppy breaks a bottle and holds it in a threatening manner.

The film also contains a scene in which a police officer creeps along a railway line and then unrealistically ducks on the line as a train passes. The character is portrayed as a mean-spirited authority figure and children are unlikely to identify with her.

There is also a brief moment when an animal character is seen smoking a banana. This is clearly a joke, based on the animal's penchant for the fruit.

The film includes an exclaimed use of 'Bolshevik!' which maybe interpreted as a wordplay implying mild bad language.

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.
