Not appropriate for families, definitely NOT for kids or teens.

Don’t let the down-home description of a former bull rider turned bull fighter fool you. It sounds like a story of redemption but I couldn’t make it that far. This move has no redeeming qualities. Lots of drinking and drugs. There’s multiple F words and a completely unnecessary bedroom scene with full nudity. That’s when I turned it off and thumbed it down. Why can’t movies just tell a story without the garbage and filth? Should be rated MA. Even before that it was painfully slow. Shame on HULU for not having a better rating system or the technology to be able to filter out movies like this. I will not be re-upping my subscription.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
