Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Term Life is a crime drama about a criminal (Vince Vaughn) who bonds with his teen daughter (Hailee Steinfeld) while on the run from a drug lord. Things get violent: Viewers will see guns and shooting (including by a teen), several dead bodies, a little blood, punching and fighting, car and foot chases, and arguing. There's brief discussion about teen sexuality, and adults are shown kissing and in the early throes of passion. The teen character has been arrested for drinking and accepts a beer from another teen (but she's never actually shown drinking). A supporting character is a drug lord, and there's some background smoking. Language includes several uses of "f--k." Teen viewers may be attracted to the well-known cast, but rest assured, all of these actors have been better elsewhere.

Sexual Content

Brief discussions of teen sex. A couple enters a hotel room; they kiss and make happy, moaning noises (and are then interrupted).


Guns and shooting, blood spurts, dead bodies. Exploding cars. Chase scenes. Punching, fighting. Arguing. A teen girl fires a gun.


Many uses of "f--k," "s--t," "a--hole," "ass," and "douchebag," plus "Jesus Christ" (as an exclamation).

Social Behavior

Reminds us that daughters spending actual time with their fathers is better than simply being "supported" (although if the father is a criminal, this may not be such a good thing).


Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

A teen character has been arrested for drinking. She drinks more (off screen) during the movie's first half. A supporting character is the head of a drug cartel. Cigar smoking, swigging from a flask, background cigarette smoking.
