Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that the main characters get involved in life-threatening situations, such as being gored by a bull and almost dying in a rushing river. Heavy drinking leads to the death of two horses and the maiming of a minor character, as well as a fistfight and threats to kill a calf. Main characters make sexual jokes aimed at women, and one man cheats on his wife. That said, as midlife-crisis comedies go, this one is kinder and gentler than many that have followed it.

Sexual Content

Many sexual comments about women's bodies; Phil cheats on his wife and almost gets his mistress pregnant.


Some gun play. Phil threatens to shoot a cowboy; the cowboy threatens to shoot an animal. A character nearly dies in the river.


Numerous cuss words, though not f--k. Usually tied in with sexual references, the worst being "bang the s--t out of her."

Social Behavior

The message is positive: Love your family, pursue your dreams, become a man (in the best possible sense).


Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Drinking leads to death and destruction, as well as fistfights. Curly is constantly smoking.
