Great movie about being true to yourself, loyal to family and appreciating what you have

Yes, there are some mature aspects to the movie (swearing, sexual references, skimpy outfits in the WWE, wrestling-related violence) but if your kids are old enough to handle them the story and acting shine. It teaches great lessons about being true to oneself, being loyal to and supportive of family and being proud of who you are and where you come from. My 14 and 16 year old loved this, as did my husband and I.

Don’t care for the language

Comments about sucking/swallowing, eat me, etc. Of course my son picked up on it and said ewww. I didn’t react hoping he won’t repeat it in school tomorrow.

Too much swearing
