Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this movie depicts an acrimonious divorce. Doyle is angry and is verbally abusive to his mother, which may give some kids bad ideas about how to treat their mom. Reed is a lying, philandering jerk who neglects his son, which may be difficult for some children of divorce to see. Generally, Doyle is treated poorly by both Reed and Dutch, but he comes to love Dutch because, presumably, Dutch keeps showing up, even if he's borderline abusive.
Dutch buys playing cards with naked ladies on them, and Doyle furtively looks at them. Dutch and Doyle get robbed by two prostitutes (and Doyle stares at one of the girls' cleavage). Reed Standish is shown in bed with a woman, though no sex is seen.
Doyle and Dutch take turns beating each other up, including kicking, punching, throwing books, and shooting each other with a pellet gun. Doyle steals a car and flips it, endangering his life.
A little salty language, including "bastard," "f--k," and "son of a bitch."
Dutch is borderline abusive to Doyle, though Doyle grows to love him anyway. There's a lot of lying and thievery involved in this film. The female characters are weak, including the mother.
Drugs / Tobacco /
Dutch smokes cigars, and a woman in a diner smokes a cigarette.
