Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Grudge Match is a boxing comedy starring two actors legendary for their on-screen boxers: Robert De Niro (Raging Bull) and Sylvester Stallone (Rocky). As one would expect from a boxing film starring older actors, there are a ton of age jokes as well as fights in and out of the ring (the two men are shown bloody and bruised by the end of the fight). There are a lot of references to weight, age, race, height, and sex (one character's name is B.J., which leads to a lengthy discussion of how much men like to "get" his name). One character is a borderline alcoholic, and the other can't let go of old hurts, but audiences will definitely cheer as the two epic actors get back in the ring.

Sexual Content

Several references to a tryst that results in an unplanned pregnancy; a few kisses and embraces between Razor and Sally. There are jokes about age (the two men are supposed to be around 60), as well as sex/ oral sex, because a man's nickname is B.J. A boy asks what a B.J. is, and a man says "butterscotch jellybeans" and then goes on to make a innuendo-filled comments about how men "love butterscotch jellybeans." A woman comes on to a man and encourages him to leave a bar with her. They are later caught in the back of an SUV with their shirts off (her bare shoulders are visible).


It's a movie about boxing, and that's a violent sport. De Niro and Stallone get into a couple of brawls with each other and in one scene with an MMA fighter. The boxing match includes close ups of bloody eyes and bruises. A man is extremely upset when he realizes his son was left alone in a bar. A tasteless joke: "somebody rape this guy already" when two men are jailed for the night.


Language includes uses of "s--t," "bulls--t," "chickens--t," "a--hole," "bitches," "damn," plus exclamations like "Goddamn it" and "Jesus!" coarse euphemisms and colloquialisms for sex (BJs, banging, screwing, etc.), and insults like "loser," "jackass," "moron," "coward," "Webster" (in reference to a short black man), various ways to say "fat" and more.

Social Behavior

The movie contains positive messages about the transformative power of forgiveness, the importance of knowing your parents, and the idea that age shouldn't keep you from doing what you've been called to do. Every character seems to have father issues they work out in the course of the movie.


Lots of product placements, mostly car companies: Dodge, Cadillac Escalade, Mustang, Audi, Nokia Lumia phone, AT&T, ESPN, HBO (HBO Boxing), Target, Adidas, Dancing with the Stars, Apple iPad, Carhartt, Under Armour, Us Weekly, Geritol, and more.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Billy owns a bar and adults are shown drinking a lot (Billy to excess). Billy drinks Scotch for breakfast. A young boy is left without supervision at a bar and watches adults drink, dance, and then he even plays quarters (without actually drinking).
