Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that nothing is sacred in the envelope-pushing dark comedy The Bronze -- whether it's a religious teenager, parental death, the U.S. mail, homeschooling, or the Olympics. This is bold, raunchy stuff, with plenty of swearing ("f--k"s galore); implied masturbation; an extended, graphic sex scene (almost everything is visible, including naked breasts, a butt, and a woman's genital area -- albeit in shadows and from a distance); and people being treated in some pretty terrible ways, including verbal abuse, which is played for laughs. There's also drinking and drug (pot) use. Underneath it all is the idea that even the most seemingly embittered person can find peace and happiness if given the opportunity, but the crude stuff takes center stage.

Sexual Content

Hope doesn't think twice about propositioning two men for a threesome just so she can get a free drink. In one extended scene, she and a fellow ex-gymnast are shown in various sex positions, with her naked breasts and his butt visible; there are also brief, shadowed glimpses (from a distance) of her genital area. In other scenes, Hope tries to grope a man and tries to talk two teens into having sex with each other. A woman masturbates while she watches herself performing an athletic feat (no nudity, but it's clear what she's intended to be doing).

Violence

The lead character is verbally abusive (in a way that's meant to be darkly comic) to her father and anyone else she finds threatening or annoying. Mention of a character committing suicide.

Language

Frequent swearing, including "ass," "butt," "d--k," "p---y," and "f--k."

Social Behavior

Amid the envelope-pushing content is the message that even the most seemingly embittered person can find peace and happiness, given the opportunity.

Consumerism

Brands/products seen or mentioned include Sbarro, Mercedes-Benz, Bisquick, Quiznos, and Roto-Rooter.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Lots of drinking, sometimes to excess, as well as pot smoking. In one scene, an adult doctors a teen's protein shake with weed.
