Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Loosies is a grown-up romance set in a world of "cops and robbers," which involves petty crime, larceny, and con artists, with some brutal fights. Characters are punched, kicked, pummeled, and threatened with a knife; a policeman beats up a prisoner. It's also a redemption story, dependent upon the leading character's transformation from amoral loser to valuable human being. A lengthy love scene includes kissing, foreplay, partial nudity, and actual sexual activity in a series of artful shots. There is a mention of the possibility of abortion. Swearing and obscenities are frequent ("s--t," "bastard," "asshole," "knocked up," and "slut," among others, and one use of "f--k"). Drinking takes place in bars and at home; some characters smoke.
