HUNT FOR THE WILDERPEOPLE is a comedy about an orphaned boy used to city life who is left in the care of a foster family in rural New Zealand.

Language

There is occasional use of moderate and mild bad language, including 'wanker', 'frickin', 'dickhead', 'bastard, 'bloody', 'bugger', 'shit' and 'arsehole'.

Sex

Infrequent moderate innuendo includes a scene of comic misunderstanding in which a boy innocently describes helping an adult man recover from an injury, but the men listening to his story think he and the adult were engaged in sexual activity.

Violence

There are two scenes in which wild boar are attacked. In the first, a woman is out hunting when she catches a boar. There is brief sight of a bloodied knife blade and the animal's bloodied leg, as well as a blood spurt implying its throat has been cut. There is also sight of blood on the woman's face after the killing. In the second sequence, some dogs have chased a boar into a confined space where it turns and attacks them. Humans attempt to intervene, shooting and stabbing the animal with resultant sight of blood but limited injury detail. Following the attack, there is brief sight of a dog with a bloody stomach wound.

Elsewhere, a man is accidentally shot in the backside, but there is no sight of blood or injury detail.

There are passing, comic references to smoking a 'joint' and owning cocaine.
