Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Home Sweet Hell is a dark comedy about a suburban mom who will go to murderously disturbing lengths to maintain her perfect life. Bloody violence includes a drugged woman being bludgeoned to death and dismembered with a power saw, as well as a scene in which two people are stabbed to death. Perhaps not surprisingly, nobody comes off well here; the women are treated as eye candy and sex objects, and the male characters are either violent, conniving criminals or a weakling who will go along with the most heinous plan to avoid offending his domineering wife. There's some racist and sexist language, a good amount of sex (including plenty of topless women), and frequent profanity (including "f--k" and "p---y"). One scene shows a man snorting crystal meth.

Sexual Content

A store manager has an affair with an employee; in an extended montage, they have sex all over the office, in all kinds of ways (plenty of thrusting and grunting, but very few body parts visible). Another scene is set in a strip club, with many topless women in the background; a mostly undressed stripper who finds herself at the wrong place at the wrong time is stabbed to death. A married couple discusses their sex life, with some suggestive dialogue.

Violence

Very bloody/violent. A woman is drugged, bludgeoned to death, and dismembered with a power saw. Viewers don't see the blows land, but the sprays and spurts of blood tell the whole story. Another scene includes two people getting stabbed to death; one is impaled with a sword. A suburban mom is exceptionally unremorseful after murdering several people.

Language

Frequent use of "f--k" and a few discussions about women's "titties." Also "p---y," "bitch," and "s--t." One character makes several disparaging comments about Jews and Mexicans.

Social Behavior

A woman is so determined to attain and maintain the perfect life that she's willing to commit murder. Her utter lack of a moral compass is disturbing, and her husband is so afraid of crossing her that he goes along with the scheme.

Consumerism

One of the main characters is obsessed with obtaining just the right material objects.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Characters drink beer at parties and meals and sometimes at work to celebrate a big sale. Several people smoke cigarettes, and one scene shows a suburban dad who's coerced into snorting crystal meth. Characters are drug users/dealers.
