Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that teen fans of The Hunger Games co-star Liam Hemsworth may well want to see Love and Honor -- but know that it has a fair bit of drug use, sexuality, and violence. Considering the '60s setting, the drug use (marijuana) isn't that unexpected; nor is the tension between protesters and police and the shooting in the movie's brief war scene. There are two love scenes (bare-chested men and bra-wearing women) and a few passionate kisses. Teens will at the very least learn, if they haven't already, about the opposition to the Vietnam War.
- Sexual Content
- Two love scenes show bare-chested men and women who are either wearing a bra or have a sheet or blanket covering them up. A couple of passionate kisses -- one that's scandalous because it's obvious the young woman doesn't believe in monogamy (she had just gotten engaged to someone else).
- The opening sequence takes place in Vietnam, and there are a couple of close calls, but only one character is actually shot and injured. Mickey discusses some of his fellow soldiers who've died in battle, and Dalton hits a pacifist who was kissing his fiancee. Police roughly arrest protesters, and two friends find out that another friend in Vietnam has died.
- A few uses of "s--t, " "a--hole," and "bitch."
- Social Behavior
- The movie promotes standing up for what you believe in and making sure your voice is heard. It also stresses the importance of honesty in romantic relationships.
- Not applicable
- Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
- College-age students and soldiers smoke marijuana (a few times) and get drunk and/or drink heavily -- in keeping with the reputation for open drug use among young people in the '60s.
