Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Bobby Darin suffered from painful rheumatic fever as a child, was physically unwell, and died from his illness at the age of 37. This movie portrays his suffering as well as his death, which younger audiences might find scary. Mature themes, complicated characters, and implicit alcohol abuse make this movie inappropriate for sensitive viewers. Also, two characters die. Expect frequent swearing and insults, strong angry language, and references to sleeping around. A committed couple shares a scene of implicit sexuality. There is a raging marital dispute, ongoing arguments between friends and family, as well as questionable priorities for characters.
