Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Goon is a fact-based sports dramedy about a hockey player whose primary job is to be the team's designated thug on the ice; consequently, it features plenty of violent and bloody confrontations on the ice. It glorifies fighting and suggests that participating in a good beat down can be an entertaining activity. Perhaps not surprisingly, considering that the script was written by veterans of Superbad and Knocked Up, there's also near-nonstop swearing ("f--k," "s--t," and much more), lots of drinking, some drug use, and a few sex scenes that are pretty brief but do include partial nudity.

Sexual Content

A couple of quick sex scenes include brief glimpses of naked breasts. A guy is shown having sex with a woman; her naked back is glimpsed, as well as the side of her breast. They're being watched and filmed on camera phones during the act. Another character makes near-constant crude sexual gestures for laughs.

Violence

Pretty brutal, especially on the ice. Brawls break out in a heartbeat, with bone-crunching sound effects and bloody moments. Some of it is stylized, with slow-motion effects such as a close-up of a tooth hitting the ice.

Language

Non-stop foul language, including constant use of words like "f--k" and its derivations, "s--t," "d--k," "hell," and more.

Social Behavior

Goon glorifies fighting. Doug is rewarded for his terrible temper -- he beats up a guy in the stands at a hockey game and is then recruited by the team. On the ice, he makes his name as a bruiser and moves up the ranks.

Consumerism

Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

One character snorts cocaine off a woman's backside. Another is a smoker. Hockey players frequently do shots at a bar after games.
