Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that the movie includes multiple violent scenes (shooting, neck- and nose-breaking, fighting, knifing, smothering in plastic wrap), as well as one flashback where a young boy sees his father killed by a hitman (the shooting is off-screen, the boy's stunned and frightened reaction is visible). Most characters are professional thugs and killers, gamblers, and con-men. One female character works in a morgue, where a burned corpse is visible (close-up of the grisly arm). Characters curse frequently, drink occasionally, and a few scenes display or insinuate sexual activity. None of the characters provides an admirable role model; some are cleverer than others.
Two sex scenes; Lindsey accidentally sees Slevin's penis (though we don't -- her reaction is our focus); Slevin and Lindsey chatting, post-sex, in bed; flashback shows two gay men meeting secretly; verbal references to "hand job," "fine ass," "t--s."
Includes frequent killings and beatings (knifings, shootings, nose-breaking, neck-breaking, punching faces and stomachs, poisoning); opens with a man shot in his car (windows break, blood splatters); a horse takes a bad spill on a track; a woman is shot offscreen (you see blood splatter); a boy witnesses his dad's execution (you see blood on car windshield); a man is shot from a rooftop; explosion; dead, bloody bodies; Lindsey works in a morgue and so deals with dead bodies (one is grotesquely burned).
Frequent use of the f-word (30 or so instances); some sexual slang; several uses of s-word, "ass," and "hell," one "damn," pejoratives for gay men ("fairy").
Heroes are assassins, gamblers, and cheats who outsmart mob bosses.
