Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Rock the Kasbah is a comedy about a burned-out talent agent (Bill Murray) and an Afghani singer who dreams of going on television. Expect vert strong language, with "f--k," "s--t," "bitch," and "a--hole" used frequently. And although no nudity or sex are actually shown, innuendo and sex talk are very strong, sex is suggested, and a secondary character is a prostitute. Violence in the Afghan setting includes shooting and explosions; one character gets a bloody shoulder wound. Characters drink frequently, with minor drunkenness (played for laughs); one takes a "Mexican quaalude" and becomes comically high, and there are mentions of hashish and crack. This isn't one of Murray's stronger efforts, but his fans will still likely want to see it.

Sexual Content

A secondary character is a prostitute. Very strong sexual innuendo/sex talk. The main character is seen "the morning after," tied to a bed wearing a wig and makeup.


General chaos in Afghanistan: burning vehicles, shooting, explosions. Main character shot in the shoulder, with blood spurt, bleeding wound. A car carrying the main character explodes and flips upside down. Character tells of being head-butted and bleeding.


Strong, frequent language includes "f--k," "s--t," "bitch," "a--hole," "hell," and "goddamn," plus a middle-finger gesture.

Social Behavior

It's important to stand up for yourself and be happy -- though that can fly in the face of longstanding traditions that may be worth respecting.


The TV show Afghan Star is referred to as a version of American Idol. A character wears a Levi's t-shirt.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Characters drink fairly frequently. Some minor drunkenness. A character takes a "Mexican quaalude" and becomes comically high. Mention of hashish. Mention of someone being "on crack."
