Since the beliefs that parents want to instill in their children can vary greatly, we ask that, instead of adding your personal opinions about what is right or wrong in a film, you use this feature to help parents make informed viewing decisions by describing the facts of relevant scenes in the title for each one of the different categories: Sex and Nudity, Violence and Gore, Profanity, Alcohol/Drugs/Smoking, and Frightening/Intense Scenes.
Visit our Parents Guide Help to learn more

Sex & Nudity

None, but it is implied that Taylor would like Senator Paine's daughter to seduce Mr. Smith in order to take his mind off the willet Creek bill.

Violence & Gore

After getting sworn in, Mr. Smith punches every journalist he comes across

During the filibuster, Taylor's thugs slap young boys, manhandle them, and even ram their car with a truck in order to stop them from spreading the truth

Profanity

A use each of "damn" and "jackass." "Damn" is drowned out by shouting, however.

There is little if any and it isn't focused on.

In one extended sequence, the Jean Arthur character has decided to quit as Mr. Smith's assistant. She and a male friend go out, and start getting drunk in a bar. There is some conversation in which they talk drunkenly. Then she accepts a marriage proposal from him (she had repeatedly said no before), and they leave to go off to get married. However, they never do, and don't talk of the marriage proposal ever again.

In one scene, hired thugs ram their truck into a small car filled with young boys. The extent of the crash appears potentially fatal and may leave some feeling extremely disturbed.

Mr. Smith collapses at the end of the filibuster, and for a moment it seems he might be seriously ill or worse.

During the filibuster several gunshots are suddenly heard and we learn that someone has attempted suicide.
