Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that The Details is a dark comedy about a not-so-likeable man (Tobey Maguire) who commits some pretty heinous deeds. He lies, cheats on his wife, considers murder, and even intentionally runs his car over an animal. Other people in the film are just as unpleasant, and nobody really gets what they deserve. There's plenty of swearing (including multiple variations on "f--k"), some drinking, and one scene in which people smoke pot. There's also a rather bloody murder involving a bow and three sex scenes in which bare backsides are glimpsed and oral sex is suggested. A character masturbates to online porn. (The movie is also available on demand.)

Sexual Content

A few sex scenes, some featuring quick glimpses of naked backsides and suggestions of oral sex. A husband and wife argue about their sex life, and the man sometimes masturbates to online pornography.


A few heated arguments and one rather gruesome, bloody murder using a bow. A man intentionally drives over an animal and then puts the car in reverse and does it again, just to be sure.


Frequent swearing includes many permutations of "f--k," plus "s--t," "whore," and more.

Social Behavior

Almost everyone in this film lies, cheats, steals, or worse -- and nobody seems to get what they richly deserve. The innocent are punished, while the guilty get to live a good life. There's simply no justice here.


One character mentions grocery shopping at Trader Joe's, and a Nike shoe is visible in an early scene.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Two characters get drunk in a bar, then go smoke a joint and fondly recall the times they got wasted in medical school. People drink wine and other alcoholic beverages at social events and meals.
