Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Rocky II, typically for Hollywood, glorifies the brutal sport of boxing as the way our champ hero proves his value and his "heart." Of course -- especially coming off the last movie -- there are other ways, like getting a good job or learning to read, that Rocky (played by Sylvester Stallone) could have shown his worth, but the screenwriter (played by Sylvester Stallone) and the director (played by Sylvester Stallone) arrange circumstances so that Rocky has only one option: fighting.
Rocky and Apollo take a pounding in their fight scenes.
"Hell" mainly used by Rocky's crusty trainer Mickey.
Rocky Balboa is the symbol of an underdog with a big heart and a rough start in life. He remains a good sport, a noble guy, and an observant churchgoer.
Drugs / Tobacco /
Recreational drinking and smoking, mostly by Rocky's brother in-law.
