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

Several men are seen in a locker room shirtless and in their underwear. PG

The team leader's girlfriend playfully tries to initiate sex before a World Cup match, but he tells her that abstaining keeps him strong (and angry). They embrace, kiss and fall backwards together out of the shot. Nothing is shown. PG

A woman at a dance wears a revealing, low-cut dress. As Mandela casually dances with her, he tells her that he almost wishes he was a polygamist, like his father, because she is so beautiful. PG

Violence & Gore

The Rugby games are basically like football but without pads so they can get pretty hard-hitting. PG

Players do obtain cuts and bruises during matches. PG

There are a couple of minor fight scenes during some of the rugby games. PG

Profanity

Three "F" words, two of which are only noticeable if you put it on subtitles, the other one is well heard. and very few minor profanities. If it weren't for use of this word, the movie would be a PG.

You can only hear two but if you put on the subtitles, there are more that can't be heard.

The South African word 'voetsek', which is Afrikaans and is a rude form of 'go away!', is used on a few occasions. (Note: it does not mean "F*** off" as a previous poster wrote. It is not as strong or as rude as that, but it is not polite!)

There is a scene in a bar where the team is celebrating a win while drinking. PG

During the final match, people are shown watching the game in bars and pubs. A lot of them are seen with alcohol in their hands. PG

A terrorist threat involving a plane occurs during the big game. PG

In an early scene, a minibus appears to be following the President.

Rated PG-13 for: Adult Language, Mild Violence.(HBO advisory)
