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.

While there is no real sexual activity shown in the movie, it is littered with sexual innudenos that are used to contribute to the comedic bits throughout the show. The most you see visually is the scene where Lisa shows her father her nightie (which is only considered a nightie by the 1930's several celebrities it'd be considered a cute outfit) to show him that she has reached womanhood. There is no sexuality intended in the gesture.

The only scene that shows any violence is when "Snapps" pins Anthony on the breakfast table. There is, however, several scenes that contain threats to "Pop" characters in this show. Again this is all used only to contribute to the comedic bits thruoughout the movie.

A small amount of PG rated language such as damn, hell, ass, balls.

There are few (and I mean once or twice) references to drugs. There is a scene where Marissa Tomei is smoking a cigarrette. Also the whole story is based in the time of prohibition and the main character "Snapps" is an "Ex-Gangster" that sells beer. They never show any drinking of alcohol but there is mention of it.

In the opening scene, the protagonist's father, who is clearly very ill, dies. The scene is played humorously for exposition.

The protagonist's young adult daughter throws a tantrum and cries melodramatically when frustrated.
