Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Millions is a film about what happens to a lonely boy when a bag of money falls from the sky. There's a little salty language ("bastard," "d--k"), and a child is threatened by a burglar. There's some smoking and drinking. Boys look at a lingerie website and examine what they can see of a model's nipple through her bra. Damian walks in on his father and new girlfriend asleep in the same bed. American kids may need help understanding the thick British accents. The movie doesn't take a rigid stand on the ethics of what to do when found money turns out to be stolen. But there are many positive messages about kindness, faith, selflessness, and doing the right thing, and Damian is a strong role model who wants to help the less fortunate.
- Sexual Content
- The boys look at a lingerie website and examine what they can see of a model's nipple through her bra. The older boy may be interested in sex, but the scene focuses on Damian, who immediately asks if their mother had a nipple, showing that there's nothing lascivious in his interest but rather that all women remind him of how much he misses his mom. Damian walks in on his father and new girlfriend asleep in the same bed.
- Damian is terrified by a burglar. An imagined burglary involves baseball bats; no beating shown.
- "Bastard," "d--k."
- Social Behavior
- The movie doesn't take a rigid stand on the ethics of what to do when found money turns out to be stolen. But there are many positive messages about kindness, faith, selflessness, and doing the right thing.
- Many products are mentioned as the boys think about spending the money. The Nike swoosh is prominently displayed on the bag of money.
- Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
- An imaginary saint, Claire of Assisi, smokes a cigarette and comments, "You can do what you like in heaven. It's down here you have to make the effort." Adults drink champagne.
