Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Elvis & Nixon is a fictionalized take on what the real-life 1970 meeting between Elvis Presley and President Richard Nixon might have been like. Characters carry guns, and guns are shown in several scenes; Elvis shoots a television set with one. Strong language includes multiple uses of "f--k," as well as "s--t," "goddamn," and more. There's also some mild flirting and references to the "fight against drugs." Teens with an idea of who these famous figures were might be interested in seeing what this movie is all about, but mostly it's a novelty aimed more at older viewers.
