Dr. Strangelove Shock Rating

Shock Rating

PG-13

There's no "language" in the film, and the only steamy scene is one girl in a bikini and a brief flash of a tastefully covered Playboy centerfold. Still, the whole world is obliterated in the end, and this might be scary for kids who don't understand the satirical nature of the film. It's really not a movie for kids, though—too sophisticated.
