Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this inspiring, intelligent film based on Michael Lewis' bestselling non-fiction book stars Brad Pitt as a professional baseball manager who tries to reinvent the art of recruiting players. It's an incisive look at the classic game that -- thanks to pretty tame content aside from some swearing (including "f--k" and "s--t"), social drinking, and references to Las Vegas -- is age-appropriate for older tween sports movie fans and up. Plus, it has a strongly positive message about committing to a course of action and seeing it through no matter what.
A verbal reference to a character enjoying the naughty pastimes of Vegas.
One character throws things around -- and even upends tables -- when he's anxious and frustrated.
Language includes a couple of uses of "f--k," plus "s--t," "hell," "d--k," "a--hole," "crap," and "damn."
The movie has a pretty inspiring central message: Commit to a course, and don't let anyone shake you.
