Great children’s movies entertain the parents as well. A clever technique writers and directors use in that endeavor? Sneaking in inappropriate jokes and references that only adults will understand. Here, we present 11 examples of these adult-oriented references, gags, and puns in kids’ movies, as highlighted in a recent online forum.
11. Hocus Pocus
“Old one: Hocus Pocus. We desire children. Bus driver “may take me a couple of tries, but I don’t think it’s going to be a problem.”
“Oh, sugar honey iced tea.”
“Similarly, in Spy Kids: Oh shi…itake mushrooms.”
9. The Rugrats Movie
“When the parents are discussing the *** of the new baby (who ends up being Dill) Angelica’s mom says “Well, yanno what they say: born under Venus, look for a…” before she gets interrupted.”
“I also like later on when the babies are all singing in the nursery and one of the babies says “they cut my cord” and another one looks in his diaper and says “consider yourself lucky.” Never realized that was a circum*****n joke until I watched it again recently.”
8. The Powerpuff Girls
“In one of the Powerpuff Girls episodes, the girls make friends with another girl their age and when they introduce her to Professor Utonium they explain he created them by accident. The girl says, “Don’t worry professor, I was made by accident too.””
7. The LEGO Batman Movie
“Where Robin says to Batman: “My name is Richard but my friends call me Dick.” And he responds: “Kids can be cruel.””
6. Cats & Dogs
“One of the dogs says, “Son of my mom.””
(…As in, “Son of a b****.”)
“It’s quite risqué in other places, like the stuff about Butch liking being scratched a certain way.”
Mrs. Copperbottom: Oh, honey, I’m so sorry. You missed the delivery.
Herb Copperbottom: Oh!
Mrs Copperbottom: But it’s okay. Making the baby’s the fun part [picks up a box with a picture of robot on the front].
4. The Grinch
“In the scene where it shows the baby’s being delivered in a basket:
One basket lands on a front porch and the father comes out and alerts his wife “our baby is here!” He then takes a closer look and says “it kinda looks like your boss.””
3. Shrek 2
“The scene…when Puss In Boots is caught with “catnip.””
“Dude what about the scene where Farquad literally sets up to j*** it to the magic mirror?”
2. Monster House
“Jenny: There! [Waves flashlight at chandelier] Jenny: Well, if those are the teeth, and that’s the tongue, then that must be the uvula! Chowder: Oh, so it’s a girl house…Jenny: [looks at him] What?”
“Ratatouille, where Alfredo’s trying to explain to Colette that he has a rat doing his cooking for him. “I have a small…uh…” and he puts his thumb and forefinger together. Collette briefly glances down, then back up at him, and looks confused and slightly disgusted.”
