Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Boys Klub is a 2001 coming-of-age basketball movie that is incredibly awful on every level. The flat acting, the forced and unfocused storyline, the cheap production, and the total predictability of the climax all conspire to make this a truly horrible movie. Aside from this, the movie has frequent bullying, including a scene where a boy has his glasses stepped on by bullies, and another scene where bullies give a boy a "swirlie" in a boys' rest room. There are also scenes where a group of boys ogle large bras that apparently belong to former Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Rachel Hunter, who they spy on shortly after that, as they stare and make comments about the size of her breasts.

Sexual Content

A group of boys take turns looking through a hole in a fence, where large bras hang out to dry on a clothesline. They make assorted references to the size of the woman's breasts. Later, they spy on the actual woman as she takes the bras down from the clothesline.

Violence

Frequent bullying. Two bullies give a boy a "swirlie" in the boys' rest room. A bully steps on a kid's glasses. Bullies push and shove boys they don't like and call them names.

Language

A basketball coach uses the phrase "retard on retard" to describe two boys playing basketball. Boys make jokes about the smell in a rest room stall.

Social Behavior

While there are messages about the importance of teamwork, of doing your best no matter the odds, and standing up to bullies, these messages are easily lost in the trite presentation and amateurish production values.

Consumerism

Banners advertising Fila and McDonald's are frequently shown in the gymnasium where the championship basketball game is being played.
