Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that there's plenty to delight teens in this charming, irreverent crime dramedy, even if the material verges on the mature. It explores the complex relationship between adult siblings -- in this case, con men who lie and swindle for a living -- whose paths have begun to diverge. Expect some salty language (including "s--t") and violence (including gun use, explosions, and severe beatings). But ultimately it's more lighthearted than not and genuinely moving.

Sexual Content

A woman's dormant desires are awakened; she declares herself 'horny' and acts it. Some kissing and sex implied. A couple is shown under the covers.


A fair amount of violence. The lead characters are con men who brandish guns and have enemies. One character loves to blow things up -- and does. People beat each other, sometimes to a bloody pulp; they also shoot at each other and get shot in return. A main character stabs another man's hands with a broken liquor bottle.


Quite colorful, including words like 'piss', 'hell', 'goddamn' and 's--t'.

Social Behavior

Although the two main characters make a living by swindling others, one appears to be pained by his career path (the other relishes creating scenarios that allow them to steal). A man lies repeatedly to a woman that he actually doesn't want to hurt.


No obvious product placement. Some authors are mentioned by name, and there's some hotel signage.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Characters smoke and drink, sometimes at the same time.
