Note: The following text may contain spoilers

EARLY MAN is an animated comedy in which a caveman tribe must learn to play football in order to regain their homeland from a conquering civilisation.

Language

There is infrequent use of mild bad language ('crap'), as well as milder terms such as 'screw up'.

Threat

The cavemen are attacked by armoured mammoths and a giant, fanged duck. A meteor strikes the Earth causing destruction. These moments of threat are brief and punctuated by comedy.

There is very mild comic violence. Attackers fire arrows and throw spears, but without causing injury.

There is very mild innuendo, and comic rear nudity.

There is very mild rude humour: a character is hit by a huge bird dropping.
