Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this beautifully filmed, all-star musical from the director of Chicago (and based on Federico Fellini's classic, albeit mature, film 8 1/2) follows a tortured-genius film director (Daniel Day-Lewis) and his interactions with a series of women (played by the likes of Penelope Cruz, Nicole Kidman, Kate Hudson, and even Fergie of the Black Eyed Peas) who've had an impact on his creative process. Though there's no actual sex or nudity, many of the songs focus on love, lust, and desire, and almost all of the dance numbers feature scantily clad dancers and suggestive lyrics/movements. There's also some smoking, drinking, and infrequent swearing. Younger viewers probably won't be able to fully appreciate the movie's mature themes related to relationships and creative challenges, but the cast may draw them in anyway.

Sexual Content

Frequent sexual situations, but no nudity or love scenes. Characters often discuss sex and desire, and many of the dance sequences feature women in skimpy costumes performing suggestive movements. One song focuses exclusively on a woman's desire for her partner and includes very racy lyrics and sexy motions.


Some dance sequences feature aggressive movements, but the effect is more dramatic than violent.


Not much swearing, though some characters do refer to each other as "ass" and "whore." Also a few uses of exclamations like "hell" and "my God."

Social Behavior

A self-centered and self-indulgent film director careens through life, focusing all of his energies of the creative process and paying no attention to how his actions affect others, including his neglected wife, the mistress he takes for granted, and the many people involved in a major film project that can't move forward until he completes the script.


Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Characters (all adults) smoke cigarettes often and drink socially at parties and dinners.
