Shouldn’t have been rated PG

I was shocked this was rated PG. While is was a nice story, there was a surprising amount of cursing, including use of the n-word. My 7-year-old is sports movie obsessed, but this one wasn’t a good choice for him.

This title has:

Too much swearing
not rated for age

Too much bad language for a PG flick

I rented this because I heard it was a nice feel good flick (and because my dad is an extra in the movie and we wanted to look for him.) I checked this website to see if it was appropriate for my 7 and 9 year olds to watch and got a good vibe. But no, it has every cuss word except the F word in it and I quickly sent them out of the room to watch something else. I wish I had known that in advance. The drug dealer and issues surrounding him are also too much for a 7 and 9 year old. However, I really liked this movie as an adult and I would recommend it to parents with older kids.
