Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that while the on-the-field game/practice violence is typical of recent sports movies (though louder and more brutal), the film also includes street/gun violence. One scene has a player repeatedly trying to knock down his coach (an exercise designed by the coach). Two scenes show shootings with blood, and a couple of scenes show fights between players (they're quickly broken up by adults). Characters use harsh language (especially the n-word and "s--t").

Sexual Content

Some references to sexuality (brief negative allusions to homosexuality); cheerleaders wear scant costumes; some sexual/gender slang.


An early scene shows explicit effects of gunfire (fast editing, loud noise, close-up of bloody body); football action is loud and hard-hitting; some fights between inmates are aggressive; shooting near end of film comes abruptly and disturbingly; death of protagonist's mother leaves characters mournful.


White player calls a black player the n-word, initiating an ongoing conflict; repeated uses of "s--t" (in various forms) and "ass" occasional other language ("damn," "suck it up," "bitch," "p--sy").

Social Behavior

Juvenile detention inmates are inspired to work as a team, slamming opponents on the football field.
