Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Our Brand Is Crisis stars Sandra Bullock and Billy Bob Thornton in a behind-the-scenes look at how political campaigns are conducted -- a cutthroat, cynical, play-dirty, intense affair that might be too heavy for younger viewers. Expect swearing ("f--k," "s--t" and more), as well as some sexual references (including to masturbation), trash-talking, yelling, and scenes showing police clashing with protestors. Characters, including some supposedly on the wagon, drink, sometimes to excess, and smoke.
References to masturbation. Gossip about who's sleeping with whom.
A mass protest takes a turn for the worse, with cops firing tear gas into crowds, further inflaming them. Also insult-hurling and screaming within a campaign. A political consultant plays mind games with a competitor, sometimes resorting to trash talk and diabolical machinations.
Language includes "f--k," "s--t," "a--hole," "damn," "hell," and more.
Lots of cynicism here, but also: If you're seeking truth and purpose in your field of work, you can still find meaning. And it's important to be clear-eyed about the people you elect to office.
Amazon is mentioned.
Drugs / Tobacco /
Loads of smoking and drinking, including by someone who's supposedly been sober for years. One character offers others coca.
