This is my favorite movie of all time. It is funny, clever, light, and very enjoyable. Not only is it well made, but also very well written. There are some things parents should know forever. First off the film was made in 1959, so its certainly no American Pie. But, there is some violence (old school gangster violence, machine guns etc.), some sexual content (partial nudity, brief sex, implications of boners and sex), and a fair amount of drinking and smoking. Also, the main characters are sort of bums who squander money and use women, which may not be a very good message.

This title has:

Great role models
Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking

Funny farce with loads of innuendo

Very good and funny movie that I remember innocently from my youth. Lots of sexual innuendo played for laughs. Marilyn Monroe's gowns leave very little to the imagination, were it not for a few well placed sequins she'd be topless. Mature kids will appreciate it, but it may push the envelope for younger ones.
