All teen and kid member reviews for Hustle & Flow

Teen, 17 years old Written bydavyborn October 14, 2011

This hard hitting and gritty movie is definitely not for kids.

Hustle and Flow shocked the living daylights out of viewers and audience members worldwide when in early 2006, it won the Academy Awards for Best Original Song for "It's Hard out here for a Pimp" Now, I know that this was quiet a while ago, already, but I still can't but feel surprised. Not because I didn't like it. I loved it. And not because I didn't think that the song deserved to win. It did, because it's a great song. It's just that, even though 8 Mile won Eminem a Academy Award of "Lose Yourself" in 2003, I still couldn't believe that the suck up Oscar officials would actually recognize talent like this, and I am thankful that they did. But, parents be warned, this is a hard R: There is lot's and lot's of strong profanity including many uses of F-ck, Sh-t, D-mn, H-ll, G-dd-mn, C-nt and more. Also, there is the constant theme of prostitution, because the main character is a pimp, and he is surrounded by them throughout the movie, including one very graphic scene in a strip club early on in the movie which displays lot's of bare buttocks and breasts. Also, there is plenty of drug use, where many people smoke marijuana and the main character occasionally also deals weed to customers. Finally,there is infrequent but very strong violence including a brutal beating and shootout at the end of the movie, which amounts in a lot of neighborhood chaos. Well, this Oscar winning movie is certainly not for everyone, but if you can take the mature subject matter, than enjoy
