Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that there's a lot of CSI-type imagery here: charred, dead bodies and body parts pickled in jars. A burned body is imbedded in the windshield of a car, legs sticking straight out over the hood. Brian, Stephen, and the other firefighters face tremendous danger in burning buildings. A character dies in a fire. A fireman goes through a floor and nearly falls to his death. Another firefighter catches on fire and is severely burnt but survives. The film also depicts a couple's impending divorce. They sleep together one last time, confusing and hurting their son. There is some rear nudity (mostly male) and some sexual situations.
Two couples have sex, though not explicitly on-screen. Some shots show rear male nakedness.
Stephen starts a fight after drinking. Lots of dead bodies; people catch on fire and nearly die.
Fairly mild for the R rating.
Though there's a lot of macho kidding, Brian learns the power of family and integrity.
Drugs / Tobacco /
Some drinking, and Donald constantly smokes while investigating fires.
