Just wanted to clarify a few things since common sense media doesn't accurately describe the content in this film. There is only one f-word, but there are probably 20 to 30 other swear words in this film including prominent uses of the s-word. There is a sexually suggestive scene in which Redford's team watches a couple start to have sex before the camera pans away to their reaction to it. The actual act is mostly off-screen. Not a horrible movie (especially if you catch an edited cut on tv), but there is more than one curse word here and there is at least one sexually suggestive moment.

Great movie, neat tech.

I've loved this movie from the first time I viewed it. I am very excited to show it to my technology class as a little fact, a little fiction and a good technological adventure. ETA: Now that I've re-watched the movie the language is a little stronger then I remembered, and there is one 'near' sex scene that a sensitive student had a problem with. Still glad to show it to my class, they are really enjoying it. It's going to make a great discussion on what tech in the movie is real and what is made up.

"Sneakers" is one of those movies that I would allow my kids to watch with me. I happen to REALLY like Robert Redford and could basically be entertained just watching him tie his sneakers. But the rest of the cast are smart and funny, too. And Sidney Portier is simply, well, Sidney Portier...sigh. Yes the ending is a bit silly but as I said, my kids could watch this and be pretty entertained. Enjoy!
