Entertaining & Educational (Coming From A 14-Year Old) But Today An R

Great movie about the Watergate Scandal. All though it is entertaining & educational at the same time, and is also a classic, it is the edgiest PG film I have ever seen. If it was made today, it would be Rated R no doubt. There is an EXTREME amount of profanity (over 11 "F" words & frequent use of all the others) and an EXTREME amount of smoking (done by Dustin Hoffman) seen in 75% of the movie. There is no violence, but there are some tense moments and threats of violence (Quote from "Deep Throat": "Your Lives Are In Danger"). All though this movie can teach you alot about the scandal, it is reccomended for 15 and up.

Great movie but deserves a R or even a PG-13 Rating.

This is a very good movie. Parents if you watch it with your younger kids please be advised and this is for every one that read's this. there is a good amount use of the F word. even though its PG they still say it. here's some history about this film. It was once R rated for the usage of the F word, but at the last minute was re rated PG because of the History behind this film. i don't know JFK was a true story and it was Rated R. this should be to, or even a PG-13 rating.

Classic 1976 Dustin Hoffman Film!

All the President's Men is a classic starring Dustin Hoffman and Robert Redford has two reporters who attempt to crack the Watergate Scandal. Theres no violence or nudity, the only notable mature feature is the swearing, but only few uses of swear words. Most kids around 6-8 and up will be able to handle it, however, the plot is very deep and they will most likely not pick up on it.

"All the President's Men" Review

"All the President'ss Men" is a uncommonly good thriller set in the Watergate/Nixon Era of the Seventies. It follows a pair of sleuthy journalists (played by Robert Redford and Dustin Hoffman) who pair up to uncover a national conspiracy no one wants to talk about. There are a few f-bombs, mostly due to the witty banter of the editor-in-chief Redford and Hoffman work for, but it isn't enough to label the movie "inappropriate." Kids will be able to handle the language content because of the movie's loyalty to the facts, as well as a realistic tone that defined the very generation it was depicting. David Fincher's "Zodiac" and Ron Howard's "Frost/Nixon" owe a lot to this decade-old classic, which main strength lies in that it doesn’t play out like a trite documentary or history lesson. Needless to say, this is a film no one should miss.
