Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this documentary discusses the benefits and downsides of illegal and legal drug use and not in a balanced manner. Because the director interviews his brothers who use anabolic steroids and other drugs, his perspective is skewed and viewers will be able to tell that despite his reservations about drugs, the director admires his brothers regardless. Also, the dangers are played down, and the overwhelming statement that "everyone is doing it" smacks of justification. Drugs are shown being injected, and pills are taken to achieve a different state of being.

Sexual Content

A porn star is interviewed about injecting viagra.

Violence

Lots of scenes from blow-'em-up movies, such as Rambo.

Language

"Ass," "SOB"

Social Behavior

The competitive spirit turns desperate. Cheating and lies are excused.

Consumerism

Supplements, pharmaceutical drugs, and Gold's Gym are highlighted.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

This is a film about drug use. Legal or illegal, drugs are shown to affect behavior and physicality.
