Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that the Oscar-nominated Chico & Rita may be animated, but it isn't aimed at kids. It's a grown-up love story about two Cuban musicians who fall for each other hard but can't always make it work. There are some bitter arguments with plenty of swearing (mostly in Spanish, with English subtitles), some sex scenes complete with realistic cartoon nudity, and a good deal of drinking and smoking.

Sexual Content

Several relatively graphic sex scenes (all animated) that show nude women, as well as lots of kissing and some suggestive flirting.

Violence

A few animated conflicts, including a realistic slap-fight between two women, a car chase, and a not totally realistic drug-related shooting that leaves a man dead.

Language

Some swearing, mostly in Spanish with English subtitles, including "bitch," "dammit" and "s--t."

Social Behavior

The main message is that some people just seem to be meant together, no matter what barriers come between them. The main characters are tempestuous lovers, but behind their spats, they're crazy about each other, and their relationship transcends distance, time, and other complications.

Consumerism

Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

A lot of drinking, mostly in bars. Some characters get drunk and provoke arguments. Several people smoke cigarettes and cigars, and one person tries to get high smoking marijuana.
