What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Batman & Harley Quinn is a 2017 animated drama in which Batman and Nightwing (aka Robin) team up with an unlikely ally to save humanity from being turned into plants. Even as a feature on the "noir" side of the spectrum, the content, attitudes, and humor are more adult than similar Dynamic Duo offerings. For instance, after taking Nightwing prisoner by tying him to her bed, Harley Quinn strips to her bra and panties, and while deciding which outfit to wear, she turns and notices Nightwing's prominent erection (not shown). They have sex -- heard but not shown -- and Batman walks in on them during post-coital kissing and giggling. Shortly after, Harley Quinn tells Nightwing, "maybe I'll call you when I run out of batteries," an obvious vibrator reference. While working as a server in a superhero-themed diner, Harley Quinn breaks the arm of a customer who tries to grab her buttocks. In reference to Harley Quinn, an officer tells Batman, "I wouldn't say no to that slice of pie." Viewers will see the middle finger gesture, a gesture associated with masturbation, and hear "douche bag" used as an insult. During an excruciating karaoke version of the Blondie classic "Hangin' on the Telephone," Harley Quinn shakes her breasts in a provocative manner in a bar. In an extended scene inside the Batmobile, Harley Quinn passes gas several times as Nightwing expresses disgust in various ways while Batman tries to remain stoic. During a fight scene, instead of the iconic "Pow!" caption so frequently used in the 1960s Batman television series, the caption "Ow! My balls!" is used instead. There's also the expected comic book/cartoon violence of fighting with machine guns and handguns, punches and kicks. Characters are gored to death by a monster; one character is stabbed in the chest with a large wooden spike. The movie explores the idea of "two wrongs don't make a right," in the sense that the antagonists are resorting to eco-terrorism in the interest of saving the planet's fragile ecosystem by attempting to wipe out the human race.
