Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this engaging, suspenseful political drama -- which is based on the true story of former covert CIA operative Valerie Plame, whose identity was compromised in the press, and her husband, former Ambassador Joseph Wilson -- portrays the U.S. government as a formidable villain that tries to suppress the truth. Expect some strong language (including "f--k" and "s--t"), lots of yelling and verbal fighting, and some war footage. Characters also drink and smoke cigars. It likely won't appeal to most kids, but politically-aware teens may appreciate the movie's eye-opening look at recent U.S. history.

Sexual Content

A married couple kisses, and it's implied that they have sex.

Violence

Several tense arguments and shouting matches, and characters receive death threats. The entire story takes place on the verge of war, which adds an underlying tension to the film. Subsequently, viewers see a few attacks and explosions in the Middle East involving secondary characters.

Language

Language is fairly infrequent overall; "f--k" is used a couple of times, and "s--t" is heard a few times. Other words include "a--hole," "p---y," "a--hole," "damn," "hell," "oh my God," "crap," and "goddamn."

Social Behavior

Although the movie makes it clear that Joseph Wilson is trying to do the right thing by telling the truth about the war in Iraq, instead of accomplishing something positive, he and his family lose their peace of mind and their well being. The United States government (circa 2002-2003) is portrayed as a formidable villain, and the characters are tempted to give up, but they keep fighting. Their victory is small compared to the price they've paid, but they at least meet the challenge.

Consumerism

Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Adults drink a bit too much (mostly beer and wine) at dinner parties. One character smokes cigars.
