Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Snake & Mongoose is a 2013 movie chronicling the historical friendly rivalry between two of drag racing's best-known competitors, and how they helped make drag racing a more popular sport in the '60s and '70s. Characters are frequently shown smoking cigarettes and cigars and drinking beer. There are some moments of mild sexual innuendo, as Mongoose is frequently shown flirting with attractive women. There are also scenes in which Mongoose's son is shown dying from leukemia that might be difficult for more sensitive viewers. Sponsors, Mattel and Hot Wheels in particular, are frequently shown and appear on the uniforms and vehicles of the drag racers.

Sexual Content

Some flirtation and innuendo as Mongoose is conveyed as a "ladies' man," often seen flirting with female drag racing fans. Early in the film, a man and a woman are shown making out.

Violence

There is some historical footage from actual drag races in which the vehicles spin out of control and burst into flames. Also, Mongoose's son is shown dying from leukemia.

Language

Occasional mild profanity. "For Christ's sake." "Bitching." "Pompous pr--k." "Ass."

Social Behavior

This film shows the virtues of friendly competition and teamwork.

Consumerism

This movie, about drag racing's growing popularity in the '60s and '70s, is presented in part by the National Hot Rod Association. The drag racing vehicles and the uniforms of the racers are covered in sponsors ranging from Mattel, the U.S. Army, Coca-Cola, Olympia Beer, Ford, English Leather, Champion Spark Plugs, and Beechnut Gum. A fair amount of the movie is centered on Snake and Mongoose trying to secure sponsorship through Mattel, and having Mattel sell Hot Wheels car miniature versions of the drag racing vehicles they drive.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Snake is frequently shown smoking cigarettes. Characters are shown drinking beer and smoking cigarettes and cigars throughout the movie.
