Notes About the Violence

The rating of PG for this movie is simply bizarre. Maybe the MPAA thought the purple blood somehow makes it OK, but in Skipping Scenes world, it is still blood. NOTE: On the DVD we watched, upon loading the DVD, a trailer for Star Trek Reboot loaded automatically, and it is violent, best to skip

Not Included in Scenes

Aliens and explosions (not graphic).

General Warning

The second scene, 30 minutes into the movie is best skipped altogether, so have a friend to do that, and a scene soon after that can be listened to for plot movement.
