Too much penis and tit! Not for kids at all!

I liked the story which was great it was more of real life than a made up movie. If watching with your family like wife or husband beware of a topless woman in multiple pictures and a man's penis is shown in multiple pictures but really can't see much except 1 picture of a fully hard full shown dick. Stop with this nude stuff. I would have liked this movie so much more if it didn't have nudity in it.

This title has:

Too much sex

Very great but not recommended for younger or innocent teens and childrenit

although it is a great movie there is a lot of violence, gore, and sex. while teens these days are exposed to stuff like this I would recommend keeping this movie away from innocent teens and children. really great movie for mature folks.

This title has:

Great messages
Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much consumerism
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
