SHARK TALE is a 2004 animated film about sharks. It was originally classified U for cinema and DVD release in 2004. This cinema re-release is also rated U for mild comic violence and scary moments.

There are a few scenes in which sharks circle and bear down on other characters, displaying their sharp teeth. However, any such moments are brief and are immediately followed by more light-hearted action that helps to relieve the tension. One of the main sharks is a vegetarian and poses no threat to other characters. There are some scenes of mild violence, including a character being stung by jellyfish. However, the violence is undetailed and there is no emphasis on pain or injury.

There is some mild rude humour, relating to burping, breaking wind, and 'whale poo'. There are some mild sex references, including sight of kissing and a comment that is comically misconstrued when a character says "I want some of that!".

The film also contains some very mild bad language, including 'butt', 'hell' and 'heck'.

There is a sad scene in which a character's funeral is shown.

U stands for Universal, which means that we think the film is suitable for audiences aged four or older.
