Now You See MeClose
Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Now You See Me is an entertaining (if uneven) caper movie that could be thrilling for teens interested in magic and illusions, though some fight scenes may be too harsh (kicks to the face, pistol-whipping, a deadly car crash) for younger viewers. Viewers can also expect intermittent swearing, including derivations of "s--t," and a brief scene featuring a scantily clad woman astride a man. A character drinks too much at a bar, and several labels are seen/mentioned.
- Sexual Content
- Flirty banter and a sweet kiss. A girl strips to her underwear and makes out with a guy. Some innuendo. A woman is very briefly seen topless in a Mardis Gras crowd; hands are covering her breasts.
- A few action-packed fight scenes that look brutal, though viewers don't see any gore: A man's sleeve is trapped in a garbage disposal, and there's lots of kicking, punching, and head-banging. Guns are drawn. In one pretty gnarly car chase, a car tumbles after hitting a median, with the driver dying in a fiery crash.
- Includes several uses of "s--t," plus "bulls--t," "a--hole," "d--k," "ass," "hell," "damn," "crap," "goddamn," "oh my God," and the like.
- Social Behavior
- Justice circles back, even if it takes years. Also, ingenuity and hard work pay off, with patience.
- Several labels seen/mentioned: MGM Grand, Starbucks, Skype, Nokia, BMW.
- Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
- A character is shown drinking too much at a bar. The next day he references getting drunk.
