Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Compadres is a convoluted Mexican action comedy that centers on a disgraced cop looking for revenge on a crime lord. There's lots of violent action: Several people are shot to death, set on fire, and tortured. There's a shooting in a nursery, a baby plays with bullets, and a man threatens to shoot a pregnant woman in the stomach. Sexual content includes passionate making out and implied sex, as well as flirting and references to prostitution. Garza smokes, and several characters drink. The movie is primarily in Spanish with English subtitles (though occasionally in English with Spanish subtitles); swearing in both language includes "f--k" and "bitch."
