Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Alfie is about a smooth operator who takes pride in using women sexually and then quickly discarding them. There are many, many scenes that are insulting to women and send negative messages about how to treat them. In addition to the messages about women, characters smoke, drink, and make awful decisions when drunk that they later blame on the alcohol. They also cheat on boyfriends and spouses, and one character gets pregnant and considers an abortion. There is some profanity, including one F-word and a few S-words; plus many coarse jokes. Sexual scenes are plentiful, though mostly discreet, though one scene includes a topless woman who walks around in underwear.

Sexual Content

Frequent sexual references and situations. Adultery, threesomes, offscreen abortions, and onscreen couplings between non-committed adults all make appearances. Nudity is surprisingly light, but there is one scene where a woman removes her top and struts around in panties while the audience sees her breasts. Women are ogled nearly nonstop by both Alfie and the camera.


There are a few scenes where an unstable girlfriend of Alfie's drunkenly breaks glasses.


Some cursing: "That's bulls--t!" There are also lots of coarse jokes, such as when Alfie has problems getting an erection with a woman who sneers at him, "Peewee."

Social Behavior

There are many directly stated messages about taking sex lightly and treating women deceptively, but these are subverted by the consequences characters suffer later.


Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Alfie and other characters smoke cigarettes and sometimes marijuana; many scenes show characters drinking and acting foolishly or making bad decisions and blaming it on the alcohol. Characters have illicit sex under the influence of alcohol.
