Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Misconduct is a crime thriller/legal drama starring Josh Duhamel as an ambitious young attorney whose ex-girlfriend approaches him with whistle-blowing news about a pharmaceutical corporation's billionaire CEO. The twist-filled movie features quite a bit of violence, much of it against female characters, who are beaten, chased, shot, and killed (male characters are, too). There's also a lot of strong language ("f--k," "s--t," "a--hole," "bitch," etc.) and sexual situations that stop just short of actual sex -- including a woman's naked breasts (seen in shadow/dark light). Despite the star-studded cast (Al Pacino and Anthony Hopkins co-star), the dark thriller is unlikely to appeal to most teens.
Brief, silhouetted nudity when a man nearly commits adultery with an ex-girlfriend. They kiss passionately, he spanks her, and she undresses. In addition to seeing her in a bra, in the next scene, her breasts are visible in shadow/dark light.
People are shot at point-blank range. Others die under mysterious circumstances. A man punches another man. A woman is beaten. A corporate assassin threatens and injures people. He nearly runs over a woman on his motorcycle and seriously hurts her. Someone makes a woman in critical condition at the hospital "code" and die.
Frequent strong language includes "f--k," "s--t," "bulls--t," "a--hole," "bitch," etc.
The truth can be complicated, and couples shouldn't lie to or cheat on each other. Also, apparently, rich folks can easily get out of trouble.
