Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that The Final Season has some inappropriate content for the movie's target market -- 8-10-year-olds. One of the movie's central characters, high school student Mitch, acts out because of his mother's recent death. He smokes cigarettes, tries to get some pot, and steals his grandfather's truck. But baseball eventually helps set him back on the right path. There are some intense moments when the team's bus goes off the road in an accident, kids get injured by baseballs, and there's some fighting among the boys. Language includes some fairly strong terms, including "s--t."

Sexual Content

Kent is shown just in a towel. Patrick is shown just in jeans. Kent and Polly kiss.

Violence

Some baseball-related injuries: A ball hits a catcher's wrist, and Sammy gets hit on the back by a 90-mph fastball. Patrick beats Sammy up (punches, threats). Mitch and Patrick scuffle, and Mitch punches Patrick. The team is involved in a bus accident, but no one is injured.

Language

Some swearing, including "bulls--t," "hell," "damn," "s--t," "half-assed," and "chicken s--t."

Social Behavior

Overall, the movie's message is that finding a hobby and doing something you love can help heal pain. Mitch takes his grandfather's truck without permission and flips Patrick off. Two reporters gamble on a game.

Consumerism

Billboards at the baseball diamond advertise Pella Windows, Quaker Oats products, Jolly-Time popcorn, Hy-Vee, and Transamerica. The team wears Nike cleats, and Stock wears a St. Louis Cardinals baseball cap.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Underage Mitch smokes cigarettes, and his grandfather smokes a cigar -- but both are repeatedly told not to and how bad it is for them. Mitch asks where he can get pot. Polly (an adult) drinks a glass of wine. Roger (also an adult) drinks from a flask.
