Emma age 11.

It can be very violent at times. There's a lot of swearing. I was not old enough to understand all the plot.

Great movie, as long as your family is ok with some swearing and violence.

I loved this movie! It has good role models in the sense that John Travolta's character, thought he works in the mod, is a good character. This movie is genuinely funny and a good watch, with a great cast. They do have some excessive violence (people getting shot, punching, and plenty of blood) and plenty of swearing, but it's so good it's worth it, with those exceptions!
