Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this film includes teen smoking, drinking, drug use, foul language, sexual activity, and violence. The heroes are 1970s California rebels who essentially invent freestyle skateboarding, then confront a barrage of commercial contracts and crass promoters, instant celebrity, high stakes competitions, and insecurities among themselves. Some of the kids also deal with money problems at home, single and absent parents, and romantic pressures. One skater learns late that he's suffering from brain cancer, and his post-surgery appearance, surely gallant, may also be distressing for younger viewers.

Sexual Content

Teenagers explore their sexuality, though not so explicitly.

Violence

Mostly competitive, between anxious boys.

Language

Some strong language.

Social Behavior

Kids misbehave, learn some lessons, misbehave again.

Consumerism

A theme in the movie: teenagers are contracted to promote products.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Teenagers drink, smoke, use drugs.
