Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this movie has strong language for a PG and a child uses four-letter words. Jones' swearing is an issue in the story and ultimately he learns not to do it any more. There are some brief mild sexual references (a character is teased that she "doesn't pet," a man is said to have broken "all eleven" of the ten commandments and refers to debauchery). Characters drink and smoke, sometimes to excess. The portrayal of minorities is consistent with the era, but may be seen as insensitive by today's standards. (No mention is made of Jones' Augusta Golf Club's famous battles to keep women from becoming members.)
