The Prince of Egypt



Although our site is very popular, the current economic climate has reduced our revenues just when we need extra security to prevent attacks from hackers who don't like what we do. If you think what we do is worthwhile, please donate or become a member.


Unlike the MPAA we do not assign one inscrutable rating based on age, but 3 objective ratings for SEX/NUDITY, VIOLENCE/GORE and PROFANITY on a scale of 0 to 10, from lowest to highest, depending on quantity and context.

Sex & Nudity
Violence & Gore
1 to 10

MPAA Rating: PG

A DreamWorks SKG animated drama depicting the story of Moses. Voices of Val Kilmer, Michelle Pfeiffer, Sandra Bullock, Jeff Goldblum, Danny Glover and James Woods.

SEX/NUDITY 1 - A kiss on the cheek. Most of the men are dressed only in loincloths. In one scene, we see a man being showered and vigorously scrubbed by several women; when they're finished, he covers his groin with a towel.

VIOLENCE/GORE 4 - Soldiers shove and whip men; we see scars on some men's backs. A man is whipped repeatedly. A soldier is pushed off a scaffold, hits the ground and dies. A few times we see soldiers pushing women. Soldiers take babies from their mothers and throw them into the sea where two alligators with open mouths are waiting; several times during the movie we see a mural depicting this scene. Hippos snap their teeth and wrestle in the water, nearly overturning a basket carrying a baby; also, an alligator nearly eats the basket. A "tornado" of fire keeps knife-wielding soldiers from massacring a group of people; later, we see the soldiers swept away and drowned by rushing water. A man is buried up to his hair in sand during a wind storm; a camel bites a chunk of his hair and pulls him out of the sand, then spits water on his face. Two men drive their chariots recklessly; they nearly knock a man off a scaffold. Some men are nearly hit by a large falling stone. A woman tries to bite a man's finger. A man slaps a woman. We see a man, a woman and two animals tied up. A woman sprawls into a puddle. A snake eats two other snakes. People brush blood on their doors. We see a boy run into a house, fall down (we see his limp arm through the doorway) and die. A sea turns into blood. Swarms of bugs crawl on and fly around a city's residents. We see people with pink spots all over their bodies (presumably sores). Also, the tone of God's threatening voice is at times quite scary.

PROFANITY 1 - One insult and a mild obscenity. [profanity glossary]

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Slavery, murder, faith, miracles, love, obedience, duty, God and His will.

MESSAGE - Have faith. Believe in miracles and miracles will happen, because with God all things are possible. God can be ruthless and merciless.

A CAVEAT: We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and some of our early standards were not as stringent as they are now. We therefore need to revisit many older reviews, especially those written prior to 1998 or so; please keep this in mind if you're consulting a review from that period. While we plan to revisit and correct older reviews our resources are limited and it is a slow, time-consuming process.

INAPPROPRIATE ADS? We have little control over ads since we belong to ad agencies that serve ads automatically; a standing order should prevent provocative ads, but inappropriate ads do sneak in.
