Well, my husband loves basketball and so does my 14 year old son, Zach. So they went to see The Last Dance and the wanted my 11 year old daughter, Ellie and I to come. It had some cursing and mature topics though.

age 14+

Some cursing in the amazing docu-series starring Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls.

This is the review of the TV-MA version of the show which is uncensored. There is a fair amount of cussing (f--k, s--t, bulls--t, bitch, ass), and a few references of a player's sexuality, and a very short scene in one of the episodes which shows a naked Dennis Rodman (genitals and buttocks are censored). Consumerism shows a few scenes talking and showing the Nike and Air Jordan logos, and a little talk about the Reebok logo, There are lots of great messages in this docu-series, and some role-models, as they push each other to get better at the game. Overall, this series is great, and is good for younger teens and adults who are huge basketball fans

Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
