Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Big Eyes is Tim Burton's delightful -- if slightly disturbing -- biopic of painter Margaret Keane (Amy Adams). Expect some shouting and threats and one scene in which a man gets very drunk and starts throwing lit matches at his wife and stepdaughter. Characters drink somewhat frequently, especially in the film's second half, but the match incident is the only scene of drunkenness. Language is spotty but includes one use of "f--k" and a few uses of "s--t." Sex isn't an issue, except that a couple shares a kiss after they decide to get married. There's a clear message about the dangers of lying, and Margaret overcomes adversity and goes on to live a long, happy life.

Sexual Content

A man and a woman kiss shortly before marrying. They're interrupted by a young girl. Occasional brief cuddling and kissing.


In a drunken rage, a man throws lit matches at his wife and teen girl and forces them to lock themselves in a room. He starts a small fire. Also arguing and fits of rage.


One use of "f--k." Also "s--t," "bitch," and "damn." "God" as an exclamation.

Social Behavior

One of the main themes is the danger and hurt involved with lying (the liar gets his comeuppance). Also the importance of believing in yourself and standing up for yourself.


Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Characters drink fairly heavily in the movie's second half. One character is staggering drunk in one scene.
