Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Scarface is extremely violent from start to finish and is not recommended to anyone under the age of 17. It has developed a cultlike following, especially among teenage males. Despite the main character's death due to his violent criminal behavior, his dramatic outbursts may appeal to angsty teens. Additionally, the obscenity-filled dialogue is some of the most quotable in film history, with many lines having been incorporated into hip-hop lyrics of the past 20 years. Tony treats his wife quite poorly, verbally lashing out at her. Cocaine is a constant presence in the film.

Sexual Content

Mostly implied, but there is a rather disturbingly violent sexual scene between a sister and brother.

Violence

Constant point blank shootings and sadistic torture scenes.

Language

Constant use of the word "f--k," also "p---y," and everything else.

Social Behavior

The story is about power plays among drug dealers

Consumerism

Not applicable.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Cocaine use, drinking and smoking throughout.
