Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Brick is a highly stylized crime drama, wherein a teen detective tries to solve a case involving murder and cocaine. There is some strong violence, mostly punching and fighting, though characters are stabbed and shot (with blood shown). Teen pregnancy is discussed. A secondary character is a drug dealer, and though a "brick" of cocaine is shown, characters are not seen using drugs or high on drugs.

Sexual Content

There's some discussion of a teen girl being pregnant, and some background kissing is shown.

Violence

Most of the violence here consists of teens beating each other up. One violent character called "Tug" especially uses his fists for everything. A dead body is shown. The main character gets his face bloodied and bruised and is knocked unconscious. A character is stabbed, with blood shown. Guns are drawn, and one character is shot and killed. An intense climactic scene is depicted through sounds of screaming, fighting, and shooting, though nothing is shown.

Language

The movie's highly stylized language leaves very little room for vulgar words, but "damn," "hell," and "butt" can be heard roughly once each. A character mutters something that sounds like "s--t" under his breath in one scene; it may pass by unnoticed.

Social Behavior

A teen tries to solve a crime, but it's likely that his motivations are more selfish than having to do with the greater good.

Consumerism

Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

A secondary character is a drug dealer, and most of the characters in the film either work for him or associate with him. Some minor characters are said to be drug users, but no one is seen actually using or high on drugs. A "brick" of cocaine is shown. An unseen character is said to have died from taking "bad" drugs.
