Parents Guide for
Stranger Than Fiction (2006) More at IMDbPro »

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.
Visit our Parents Guide Help to learn more

Sex & Nudity

A couple go into a bedroom and it is implied they have sex on various occasions.

In one scene, in the background, you see the backsides of a few older men in a public shower.

A woman tells a man that he's "looking at her tits".

Violence & Gore

A man pushes a young boy out of the way of a bus: He is hit by the bus and is thrown backwards. We see blood on the windshield and blood pool around his body, as well as grotesque gory cuts on his face. A woman leaps off a building in a daydream; a woman imagines herself falling off a bridge in her car. We see a man with bloody wounds in a hospital and hear that he has been injured in a gang shootout. A woman imagines and voices repeated attempts at being unable to find a way to kill the main character of a novel. A woman describes the body of a woman who has committed suicide.


Some blasphemy, 1 'f' word, and other obscenities. Some sexually-derived crass terms as well ("tits," for example).

One of the characters smokes constantly throughout the movie; she disposes of the cigarettes by spitting into a wad of tissue, deglamorizing the image of smoking in media (A woman attempts to rid her of her cigarette addiction by offering a Nicotine patch in several scenes).

In an intense sequence in which we know that a character will die, a man is hit by a bus in a highly realistic and graphic manner. Blood sprays onto the windshield and pools around his head as we see various pedestrians calling for help and standing over his body.
