Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Ashby is an irreverent comedy with some serious moments that deal with death, sin, murder, and forgiveness -- all pretty heavy stuff that's better suited for older teens. There's a fair amount of violence and murder (one of the main characters is a retired CIA agent/assassin), plus discussions about killing people. In another disturbing scene, young men disrespect a female classmate. You can also expect plenty of swearing (including "f--k" and "s--t"), and one scene that shows underage drinking. Sexual content includes implied oral sex and talk about sex, including a frank discussion about a mother's sexuality.

Sexual Content

More talk about sex than actual sex scenes, though in one scene a woman appears to be giving a man oral sex. Also a frank conversation between a mother and her teenage son about her sexuality. A girl briefly flashes her bra to a group of boys.

Violence

Ashby is a retired CIA agent who has assassinated about 93 people. Scenes show his skills, including shooting people stealthily, preparing to strangle someone, an all-out gunfight, etc. The violence isn't particularly gratuitous, given the plot, but there's a significant amount. In one scene, a number of high school boys speak lasciviously about, and to, a young girl, with menacing tones.

Language

Frequent language includes "f--k," "s--t," "pr-ck," "crap," "a--hole," and more. Also one homophobic slur.

Social Behavior

Amid the edgy content is the idea that you shouldn't judge a book by its cover -- or a person by what he does for a living.

Consumerism

Products/brands seen include Candy Crush, Cutlass Sierra, Riddel, Ralph Lauren Polo, Chevy Suburban.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Some underage drinking at a party; teens are shown holding red Solo cups. One mention of Ritalin, and some social drinking among adults.
