Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that the main character in Man on a Ledge spends much of the film perched on a ledge atop a tall building, only one step away from falling to his death. There are references to suicide, several fistfights and shootouts (which cause mortal injuries), and some swearing (including "f--k" and "s--t"), as well as two characters who attempt to pull off an elaborate heist. Expect a few scenes featuring people drinking and smoking cigarettes, and one gratuitous sequence in which a woman strips to her underwear.

Sexual Content

A couple banters playfully about their sex life, and the woman strips to her underwear.


The film revolves around a man who seems poised to jump to his death from a tall building, as a crowd on the street eggs him on. There are also several fistfights and a few shootouts that leave people mortally injured. A car is destroyed in an intense collision with a train.


Relatively frequent use of words including "s--t," "ass," "bitch," "d--k," "hell," "crap," "goddamn," and "damn," plus one use of "f--k." A character insults a man in Spanish.

Social Behavior

The movie's plot supports the idea of the truth ultimately being what matters most, triumphing over corruption.


A Jeep plays an important role in an early scene that prominently features the vehicle's logo. Most of the movie is set at the Roosevelt Hotel in New York, which is mentioned by name several times.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

One character wakes up, groggy, with several empty liquor bottles by her bed; others discuss her carousing habits. She later shares a cigarette with the man on the ledge. The bartender at a busy bar offers a round to everyone on the house, a celebratory gesture that's cheered by the boisterous crowd.
