Sex & Nudity

  • There is a very brief scene when Mrs. Robinson begins to seduce Ben in Elaine's room where you can make out a nude Mrs. Robinson in the reflection of a portrait, however, only her rear is visible.
  • A woman takes off her top and stand in front of a young man in only her bra. This happens several more times throughout the film between the same two people.
  • There is one scene where Mrs. Robinson is implied to be naked in front of a door with split-second shots of her stomach and breasts. These are literally blink-and-you-miss-it quick. It is so quick that you probably won't be able to make out what it is. DELETE: IMDb guidelines specifically say "blink and you miss it" moments should not be included, only what a regular viewer would notice.
  • A young woman believes a man raped her mother.
  • Some sexual talk.
  • An older woman and 21-year-old man have an affair, and are shown in bed various times and in their underwear.
  • In one scene, Benjamin and Elaine enter a men's club. A dancer in a G-string and breasts covered with tassels is seen.

Violence & Gore

  • A man cuts his finger with a razor blade accidentally and blood is briefly shown. Very minor


  • The Lord's name is taken in vain many times.
  • D*mn is said at least twice.
  • Godd*mn is said once.
  • H*ll is said twice.
  • 1 usage of *ss.

  • Several characters drink repeatedly throughout the movie and Mrs. Robinson states that she was an alcoholic.
  • The main character drinks beer several times throughout the film.
  • Mrs. Robinson smokes constantly throughout the film.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • If this movie was released recently, it probably would be rated PG-13 for strong thematic material, sexual content, and partial nudity.
  • Elaine screams and hits Ben.
  • The scene where Mrs. Robinson threatens to tell Elaine that she and Ben had previously had an affair is quite intense.

Violence & Gore

  • Near the end of the movie,when Benjamin crashes Elaine's wedding, he fights her father briefly to get to her. He also tries to hit some people with a cross. Mrs. Robinson slaps her daughter repeatedly across the face when she decides to run out of her own wedding. Nothing too graphic.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The final scene where the mob inside the church tries to catch Elaine and Ben is intense, as well with Ben using a cross first as a weapon to drive the mob back and then using to jam the door to the outside to enable their escape.
