Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Game Change is a political docudrama that centers on Sarah Palin's involvement in Senator John McCain's 2008 presidential campaign. Needless to say, the content isn't going to grab most teens' attention, but if yours is particularly curious about the story, there's some merit to the movie, thanks to its unique look at the behind-the-scenes strategizing that results in what voters actually see from political candidates. Game Change offers an intriguing look at the election process, and it encourages critical thinking about our political system and the players in it. As for the players in this story, their characterizations are subject to exaggeration, so remind teens that what they're watching is a fictionalized version of historic events and people. Content-wise, strong language ("f--k," "s--t," "ass," "goddammit," and "hell") is the primary concern.

"Goddammit," "f--k," "ass," "s--t," "hell," "damn," and "prick" are audible.

Social Behavior

On one hand, the movie gives viewers a unique glimpse of the political jockeying that goes on behind the scenes. But on the other, the picture it paints isn't always favorable to the system. For instance, viewers see how political candidates are trained to minimize public-opinion fallout by skirting around potentially damaging issues and redirecting questions.
