Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III is a trippy, '70s-set comedy that takes place mostly in the mind of a narcissistic womanizer (played by none other than Charlie Sheen). As you might expect from a movie starring Sheen, there's a great deal of substance abuse (drinking, pill popping, etc.), casual sex, objectification of women (partial nudity included), and strong language (many uses of "f--k," "s--t," "bitch," and more).
The majority of Charles' mind is revealed to be made up of sex: half-naked women (breasts are shown), memories of sexual experiences, etc. Charles keeps a drawer full of lurid photos of previous girlfriends/conquests. Charles and his girlfriend are shown in a tub together (breasts visible), and there are several glimpses of sex (either the sounds of or brief scenes of the act). Women are dressed in sexy, revealing outfits in some of Charles' reveries.
Charles ends up in the hospital, is nearly blown up by a group of imaginary angry women warriors, drinks and drives, and crashes into a pool and injures himself. A beloved pet parrot dies.
Frequent use of strong language, including "f--k," "s--t," "a--hole," "bitch," "bulls--t," "ass," "damn," "c--k," and more.
Charles' life seems like a cautionary tale for young men, so the positive spin would be that being a materialistic, selfish womanizer doesn't lead to a fulfilling life.
