Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that The Final Girls is a comical spoof of horror movies, with modern characters "stuck" inside a slasher movie from the 1980s. Expect a few gory and/or shocking slasher-movie moments, but compared to "pure" slasher movies, it's fairly mild. Characters also fight with machetes, and there are some explosions and a fire. Sexual innuendo is strong, but it's usually intended to be funny. A Playboy magazine is shown, and characters are definitely talking and thinking about sex (including discussion of who is and isn't a virgin). Language isn't especially frequent but does include uses of "s--t" and "bitch." Characters take the drug Adderall, and there's some cigarette smoking and drinking (beer and vodka). The movie is clever and funny, as well as surprisingly touching, as the main character learns to let go of a lost loved one.
