Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Funny Lady is theatrical-style musical with lots of singing and dancing, a somewhat grown-up love story that includes infidelity, and a very glamourous look at Depression era show business. The women wear flashy clothes: showgirls in revealing, outrageous costumes; Streisand as Fanny Brice wears plunging necklines and shows lots of leg. Almost everyone smokes almost all of the time as was common during the 1930s. There is some social drinking, but no drunkenness. Occasional swearing throughout: "Goddamn," "bastard," "screw," and "ass" are heard numerous times, plus some insults, both English and Yiddish.

Sexual Content

Some moderate kissing and embracing. A woman opens a bedroom door and it is clear that her husband has another woman in the bedroom with him. Set in a 1930s Broadway "Follies" environment, many costumes have plunging necklines and bare backs. Show girls wear revealing costumes. No nudity.

Violence

A buffalo is briefly loose backstage during a production. In a comic verbal-only argument, one character gets a bloody nose.

Language

Swearing sprinkled throughout: "ass," "Goddamn," "bastard," "crap," "hell," "screw you," "schmuck," "s--t," "Jesus." Some insults: "broad," "pimp," "pansy," and an occasional Yiddish put-down.

Social Behavior

Even after heartbreak, it is possible to find love again, but one must accept the risks. An irrational refusal to give up the past can be very costly.

Consumerism

Maxwell House coffee, Coca Cola, NBC.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Consistent with the 1930s culture in which the movie is set, most characters smoke frequently. Social drinking (champagne, whiskey, wine) occurs in a number of scenes, with no drunkenness.
