What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that except for this caper comedy's frequent strong language (including "f--k," "s--t," "p---y," and more), there's nothing here that would demand an R rating. There are several love scenes, but they're handled with restraint -- there's no nudity and no actual activity other than kissing and embracing. The few action sequences are brief, generally mild fights (in one, a man wields a gun, and a shot is fired), and the substance use isn't at all over the top, either -- a woman smokes one cigarette, a couple of beers are consumed, and a character seems drunk in one scene and vomits in two others. That said, it's not all that likely to be a movie that's high on kids' radar anyway.
- Families can talk about why audiences root for the bank robbers in movies like this. Do you think the fact that Henry had already been to prison for a crime he didn't commit makes it more acceptable to want him to succeed?
- The filmmakers accepted an R rating for this movie solely so they could have their characters swear. Do you agree with their decision? Why or why not? Would the movie be less effective without the strong language?
