Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Filly Brown -- which marks the first and last big-screen appearance by late singer Jenni Rivera -- is about a young hip-hop artist trying to make it as a recording artist in Los Angeles without abandoning her values. As her star rises, she must make a series of difficult choices; every time, she gets a little closer to fame and a bit further away from her true identity. The film has some graphic beatings, and in one scene, a man comes very close to raping a teenage girl. Several sequences show people (including teens) smoking pot and drinking beer, and there's heavy swearing all throughout the movie ("f--k," "s--t," and much more).

Sexual Content

A few kisses.


A few graphic beatings, including a gang that assaults a man with a baseball bat, a man who comes close to raping an underage teenage girl (and punches her when she resists), and a woman who's kidnapped.


Strong, very frequent language includes "f--k," "s--t," "a--hole," "bitch" "d--k," and plenty of other choice words.

Social Behavior

To become a rap star, Majo must choose between being true to herself or abandoning her friends and her values. She initially decides that fame and fortune are worth the price but eventually realizes it's not the best decision.
