About Chip ‘N Dale: Rescue Rangers
In “Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers,” Chip and Dale are living amongst cartoons and humans in modern-day Los Angeles, but their lives are quite different now.
It has been decades since their successful television series was canceled, and Chip (voice of John Mulaney) has succumbed to a life of suburban domesticity as an insurance salesman.
Dale (voice of Andy Sandberg), meanwhile, has had CGI surgery and works the nostalgia convention circuit, desperate to relive his glory days.
When a former castmate mysteriously disappears, Chip and Dale must repair their broken friendship and take on their Rescue Rangers detective personas once again to save their friend’s life.

Language: Rescue Rangers Parents Guide
There is a bit of language that parents should be aware of in this one, but it’s fairly mild overall.

Is Chip N Dale Rescue Rangers Safe For Kids? Sex and Nudity

But that’s as sexy as Rescue Rangers get.

Violence and Gore In Chip N Dale Rescue Rangers: Is It Too Scary For Kids?
It’s mostly cartoon violence and cartoon characters that are put in peril.
Real guns and a harpoon are used as weapons, as well as a scary-looking surgical machine that is clearly meant to cause disfigurement of the cartoon characters.
There is one scene that plays more like a horror movie, however, with a live-action actor fighting a cartoon character. It could be scary for young children (the music and lighting play into that genre of film for this scene).
There are also a few intense jump scares that might make a younger child nervous!
Please note: a lot of the humor is physical that will play well for kids.
But many of the jokes and Rescue Ranger’s dialogue are aimed squarely at adults of the Millennial age. It likely may go over their heads, but be aware that some things are said that could be questioned by a child later.
There is also a scene where the characters look to drink beer and make a toast as well as a reference to a drug addiction.
Chip N Dale: Rescue Rangers Age Rating
Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers is rated PG by the MPAA for mild action and rude/suggestive humor.
Does this make Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers ok for your family? What ages can watch Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers?
We think kids as young as 5 or 6 could potentially see this one.
But as always, you know your family best!
It’s not too long (hitting that sweet 1-hour 30ish minute mark for most kid’s attention spans!) so younger kids may also be entertained by it.
But this will depend on how your family feels about cartoon disfigurement and slapstick humor.
Chip N Dale: Rescue Rangers is fairly safe and family-friendly for most kids with parental guidance.
