Parents need to know that this 1980's sports drama will be way to adult for most kids. This movie takes a realistic look at adolescent life. But yeah, younger audiences will not understand this movie. Anyways, the violence is all sports related, football pile on's. The last pile on results in a severe injury.
There is quite a bit of profanity (sh-t, ass, damn, hell, piss and 1 use of f--k). There is also teenage drinking. But other than that, teens will surely love this movie!
