We have come to expect mild innuendo in childrens films, to entertain the adult parents bringing their kids along to the cinema.
But jokes about sexual assault? Thats a new one.
The new animated film The Queens Corgi seemingly riffs on Donald Trumps infamous grab them by the p***y quote, in a wildly inappropriate scene.
The PG-rated film, directed by Ben Stassen and Vincent Kesteloot, is all about the queens corgis, and sees Donald Trump (voiced by Jon Culshaw in the UK release) and Melania (Debra Stephenson) visiting Buckingham Palace to meet the Queen (Julie Walters).
The US President and his wife bring along their own corgi, Mitzi (Sarah Hadland), who is daubed in make-up, and attempt to find her a mate amongst the Queens corgis.
As Melania sets Mitzi on her quest, Trump says: Alright Mitzi, grab some puppy.
This appears to allude to the infamous recording of Trump in 2005, telling television host Billy Bush: When youre a star, they let you do it. You can do anything. Grab them by the p***y.
This isnt the only inappropriate thing about the Trump scene, as Mitzi tells Top Dog Rex (voiced by Jack Whitehall) to take me, studmuffin, while Rex uncomfortably tries to back away.
In a later scene, Rex bites Trump in the crotch while trying to escape Mitzis advances, while another dog Charlie (Matt Lucas) plots to murder Rex to become the Queens Top Dog.
And later, in a pound, theres jokes about drugs, as a sniffer dog mistakes a shoelace for a line of cocaine.
The Queens Corgi, produced by Belgian studio nWave Pictures, was given a PG rating by the British Board of Film Classification for mild innuendo, threat, dangerous behaviour.

The Independents review of the film said: What should have been an easy cash-in – cute pups with a splash of Anglophilia thrown in – has somehow morphed into something deeply unpleasant, and in no way suitable for children.
Screen Daily said it had plenty of tasteless moments that are often wildly inappropriate for its intended audience, while The List wrote: The Queens Corgi gets the mixture wrong, with lame gags normalising sexual assault and a crude jibe at a bearded queen. Kids are unlikely to take offence, but concerned adults may well feel that the tasteless humour is not worth the awkward questions afterwards.
The Queens Corgi also features the voices of Ray Winstone, Sherida Smith and Tom Courtenay, while the US release features voice workRead More – Source
