Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that the film includes frequent images of women in scant outfits. Sex scenes show kissing and bodies dressed in underwear embracing. The film features some rough basketball (bodies slamming into each other, falling). The scam in the movie involves betting on basketball, fixing games, and paying off players. A motorcycle crashes into a car, and the rider flies up into the air and ends up in the hospital (with scrapes on his face and a worried friend in the room).

Sexual Content

Women in skimpy clothes repeatedly; sexy dancing in nightclubs; characters kiss passionately; non-explicit sexual intercourse (characters in underwear embrace); sexual slang.


Occasional arguments/bumps between players on basketball court; motorcycle accident leaves character injured with red scrapes on face.


Profanity includes several uses of "s--t" and a couple of n-words (spoken by black characters); plus other words/phrases like "sucker," "pinch that loaf," and "sorry ass."

Social Behavior

Characters cheat and lie (two guys hustle for money on basketball court; a girl lies about the father of her unborn child); two protagonists argue then reconcile.


One player performs in a TV ad that resembles Nike or Gatorade ads.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Cigar and cigarette smoking; champagne at a restaurant dinner; background drinking at parties/clubs.
