The content of this page was created directly by users and has not been screened or verified by IMDb staff.
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.

A nude man and woman lie in bed, presumably after having sex; the woman leaves the room fully nude and talks to the man's young son as she struggles to cover herself (we see her bare breasts, buttocks, and part of her pubic region).

Violence/Gore: 4/10

A man grabs his young son and carries him, kicking and screaming, to his bed; they argue and the boy continues to cry and scream, "I want my Mommy!"

A young boy falls off a jungle gym and cuts his face on the ground (we see a lot of blood on his face); his father rushes him to the hospital (blood is visible on their clothing and rubs off on the father's face) and we see the boy expressing pain and discomfort as a doctor stitches the wound; a bloody bandage is shown on his face afterwards and a scar is visible later in the film.

A man and a woman argue and the man throws a glass against a wall next to the woman, shattering it.

4/10 (1) Jesus At least 5 scatological terms, 1 anatomical term.


Adult characters drink alcoholic beverages in several scenes and occasionally smoke cigarettes.
