No nudity, but characters have children out of wedlock; some discussion of the consequences occurs.

No violence on screen. But the violence of the ghetto is a theme of the movie and affects the characters.

Frequent profanity in passing of the sort heard on the streets of any major city.

Alcohol and smoking seen in passing throughout. Drug usage in particular, and its effects on the family, is one of the themes of the movie. No drug usage is shown on screen.

Intense basketball play. Only potentially frightening scenes are those of arthroscopic surgery on one of the players.

Rated PG-13 for drug content and some strong language
