Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this movie contains some strong language and a few intense scenes in which Raymond, an autistic character, becomes distressed. There's a scene where sex is insinuated (moaning and movement under the sheets) and a brief glimpse of a breast. Prostitution is alluded to. This movie deals with mental health issues, though it requires little understanding of these issues on the part of the young viewer; characters possess the same ignorance and biases a child is likely to have.

Sexual Content

We hear sex, we see simulated sex, we get a very brief glimpse of a breast.


Not applicable


A fair amount of swearing, nothing excessive.

Social Behavior

Good message, though young viewers might get the wrong message about mental health.


Qantas Airlines, People's Court, Jeopardy!, Wheel Of Fortune, Buick, Hanes, and K-Mart, are mentioned and frequently repeated by Raymond.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Plenty of smoking, a little drinking, no drug use.
