MPAA Rated PG-13 for brief strong language

Sex & Nudity

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

Violence & Gore

  • The Rugby games are basically like football but without pads so they can get pretty hard-hitting.
  • Players do obtain cuts and bruises during matches.
  • There are a couple of minor fight scenes during some of the rugby games.


  • 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.
  • You can only hear two but if you put on the subtitles, there are more that can't be heard.
  • At least five instances of the "S" word, though they are somewhat obscured by the characters' accents. At least one instance of "bastard."
  • 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!)

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

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

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Some scenes in the movie are emotional.
  • A terrorist threat involving a plane occurs during the big game.
  • In an early scene, a minibus appears to be following the President.
