Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Straight Outta Compton is a biopic about groundbreaking, incendiary rap group N.W.A., whose song "F--k tha Police" caused a huge stir in 1988. On one hand, the group blazed many new trails in music and is still highly acclaimed today, but on the other hand, their behavior doesn't exactly qualify them as positive role models. Expect lots of extremely strong language, with constant use of "f--k," "s--t," the "N" word, and many more. Sexual content includes full-frontal female nudity, some sexual situations/references (oral sex, etc.), and characters with multiple partners. Violent scenes include a riot at a concert, fighting and beating, and general destruction. Some blood is shown, and characters die. Guns are drawn but rarely fired. One major character begins the film as a drug dealer, and cocaine and pot are shown. Characters drink frequently throughout (with no consequences), and drug use and smoking are shown.
