MPAA Rated PG-13 for sequences of fantasy violence and frightening images

Sex & Nudity

  • Draco (as a ferret) is seen going through Crabbe's pants while Goyle is touching his private parts to get him out. Then Draco comes out and turns back to his original self. This is suggestive to young children watching this part.
  • Ron stares at the Beaxbatons girls' rear ends whilst walking and skipping at the same time. He mentions that he likes it when they walk.
  • No explicit sex
  • Harry takes a bath, and we see him bare from the chest up. The ghost of a young girl comes in and sees him, coming up next to him in the bath suggestively. He tries to back away awkwardly, and nothing explicit happens.
  • Several boys and girls are asked out to The Yule Ball dance. Some suggestive comments are made.

Violence & Gore

  • Fred and George get thrown after drinking a potion and putting their names in the goblet of fire then get into a fight after that. This is only played for laughs.
  • In the second task of the Tri-Wizard tournament, Harry gets attacked by grindylows getting pulled by his ankles and almost gets attacked by mermaids with pitchforks saving Gabrielle Delacour and Ron. He is unharmed after getting out of the water.
  • Some violence in this movie is kind of disturbing.
  • Harry finds a dead body in a forest, we only briefly see this and is not gory or explicit.
  • Moody tortures and then kills a spider with spells during a class.
  • Harry is chased by a giant dragon in an action sequence, which breathes fire at him and knocks him off his broomstick several times. He isn't hurt, but is seen with a few cuts, bruises and bandages after.
  • A young man is cursed, and tries to attack other teenagers with spells. They fight back, and the young man is knocked out.
  • Fleur is injured, and an enchanted hedge begins to grab her and pull her away.
  • Harry and Cedric are racing each other, but Cedric is attacked and almost killed by an enchanted hedge.
  • A teacher hits students with a book repeatedly. This is played for laughs.
  • Dark wizards in black cloaks and skull mask attack at en event shooting fire and burning tints. Harry gets trampled and is knocked out.


  • "I don't give a damn" is used once by Harry.
  • 6 uses of "bloody", and about 8 uses of "hell". At one point, Ron repeats "bloody hell" several times.
  • 1 use of "piss off". 1 brief use of git.
  • 2 uses of God's name in vain.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Madame Maxime mentions to Dumbledore that her horses drink single malt whiskey after a long journey
  • Fred and George drink a type of liquid looking to be alcoholic.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • This movie is noticably more intense and frightening than the previous three films in the series.
  • This is a first Harry Potter film to receive a PG-13
  • The entire last 30 mintutes of the film might be disturbing and upsetting.
  • This Harry Potter movie has a darker tone than the previous ones.
  • The dark wizards in black cloaks and skull mask look pretty frightening when they attacked an event.


The Parents Guide items below may give away important plot points.

Sex & Nudity

  • Voldemort emerges out of a cauldron, completely naked (nothing is seen)

Violence & Gore

  • Voldemort touches Harry's scar.
  • For Voldemort's resurrection, Pettigrew cuts off his own hand (off-screen); we do not see any blood, but we see his hand is absent from his sleeve. He is then given an artificial hand. He also uses a knife to cut open Harry's wrist, and takes his blood for a potion. We don't see the attack clearly, but we do see some blood.
  • Cedric is killed by a spell, and his body is seen clearly but with no gore. This scene is very emotional

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • On many occasions, Moody drinks from a flask. We're led to believe it's alcoholic, but we later learn it's a magic potion that must be consumed continually to keep the magic active.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Voldemort's return is very scary and frightening
  • Voldemort taunts and tells Harry about murdering his parents.
  • A father cries and screams loudly over his dead son. This scene is also very emotional.
