Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that film includes some loud and body-slamming soccer action, usually leading to someone's face bruised or a limb brutally banged. Characters lie to one another (including family members) in order to achieve ambitions. British teammates make fun of Santiago at first. A decadent star soccer player appears drunk and hung over repeatedly; he also appears with multiple sex partners (sex takes place off-screen, following brief kiss or embrace). Characters smoke cigarettes and drink, a couple of characters appear to have been snorting cocaine during a party scene, as they sniff and rub their noses.

Sexual Content

Group sexual activity at party insinuated, then makes tabloid headlines; Gavin has sex with girl (we see kiss only, the scene cuts to next morning in bed, as he wakes up hung over); Santiago kisses his nurse/girlfriend Roz.

Violence

Soccer action can be brutal (smashing bodies with added smash-sound-effects, falling in mud), leading to various damage: a broken leg, bruises, and joint-wrenching, bloody injuries.

Language

Language mostly expresses anger or frustration: "bull-snot," "shite" (a few times as a running joke, to show that Gavin is a disappointment to his fans), "boneheads," "hell," comment on getting the "squirts" in Mexico.

Social Behavior

Santiago and his father argue repeatedly about his dream to play soccer; Hernan complains about the wife who abandoned her family; Santiago hides his asthma from team; Gavin is a hard partier and womanizer who learns to be serious about his work (soccer).

Consumerism

Lots of Adidas product and billboards, less Coca-Cola, mention of Blockbuster video, some name-branded cars (Mercedes).

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Characters drink at parties and appear hung over afterwards; characters smoke cigarettes; allusion to cocaine use (character makes snorting noises).
