Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this fast-paced crime film depicts a constant stream of convivial criminality and bad behavior, including stealing, shooting, extortion, bribery, money laundering, gambling, drug and alcohol use, and more. As bloody and painful as some of it gets, director Guy Ritchie and his cast make it all look like great fun, too -- which makes for a great caper film but doesn't exactly convey any lessons above and beyond the code of the streets. Expect non-stop swearing and smoking, as well as frank depictions of drug use, violence, and more.

Sexual Content

Some male nudity (buttocks). Quick-cut sex scenes. Women appear clad in underwear. Discussions of homosexuality; references to masturbation, oral sex, and hiring "escorts" sexual gestures.


Beatings, shootings, stabbings, car crashes, drowning, and threats of torture. Golf clubs, baseball bats, baseballs, pencils, and more are used as weapons, with visible blood and gore. Also fistfights, scuffling, torture, pepper spray used as a weapon, and the threat of being devoured by crayfish.


Pervasive strong English-accented language, including "f--k," "motherf---er," "damn," "s--t," "c--k," "bastard," and "wanker." Also derogatory sexual slang like "fag," "poof," "homo," "fairy," and more.

Social Behavior

Extensive discussion of criminal activities like robbery, extortion, bribery, tax evasion, informing for the police, gambling, and drug use. Characters express some anti-immigrant sentiments. Discussion of the difference between British and European criminals.


Some brands visible or discussed, including Range Rover and Johnnie Walker Black Label. Clips from Howards End are seen.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Characters drink wine, champagne, beer, and hard liquor; cigars and cigarettes are smoked nearly constantly; extensive discussion and depiction of hard drug use, including crack, cocaine, and more. The dire ramifications and long-term effects of hard drug use are shown, with "junkie" characters living in squalor and enduring seizures and vomiting.
