Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that the main character in this energetic musical is a man who has undergone a botched sex change operation and lives life as a sort of drag queen rock star. Sexual dancing, innuendo, profanity, and tension thread through the entire film, including discussion of prostitution and oral sex. One scene includes brief, loveless intercourse where bodies are covered by a sheet, and another indicates an offscreen sexual act involving a hand. A couple scenes show male nudity from behind, and one segment shows illustrations of naked, non-sexual men and women.
Lots of sexually suggestive content -- from clothing, to dancing, to plain sexual tension. All this is kicked up a notch because of the gender-bending issues. Nude male buttocks. One scene, under sheets, of main character thrusting into another character from behind.
One semi-humorous restaurant brawl scene triggered by a hate word. Emotional cruelty. Some mild pushing. News footage of people running across East Berlin border and getting hurt.
Frequent profanity -- mostly "f--k." One instance of "c--t," plus some slurs.
The primary message is that everyone deserves to be loved.
Drugs / Tobacco /
Main characters drink frequently. Some peripheral smoking.
