Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Fast Girl centers heavily on, and opens with, the violent death of a parent. This is shown in flashback and is discussed throughout the movie. There is a minor scene involving a female adult drinking at a bar, who is later shown to be tipsy. The film also deals with several instances of sexism and prejudice toward women's capabilities, and the main character is known for "borrowing" fast cars by pretending to be a valet so she can sneak in racing practice -- this is shown without consequence.

Sexual Content

In a minor scene, a man and woman kiss.


A key plot point in the movie is the loss and violent death of a parent, which is shown when main character Alexis recalls her father's death in a fiery crash on the racetrack via flashback.


The movie has a few instances of cursing: "damn" and "jackass."

Social Behavior

Fast Girl's overall takeaway is about the transformative power of perseverance and believing in people, and giving them a chance to prove themselves. It's also about facing the things that can hold you back in life, such as old wounds, longstanding fears, or societal messages that you aren't good enough. A main character "borrows" cars by pretending to be a valet, without consequence.


Car makes and models are discussed frequently in the film, and the race cars feature advertisements for car, tire, and oil manufacturers, however, these placements primarily function to realistically recreate an authentic racing culture. Budweiser beers are also featured prominently in one scene.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

In one scene, a woman goes to a bar and orders a few beers, and is shown tipsy at the end of the night, slurring her speech.
