Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this movie is based upon complex adult themes of sexuality and personal freedoms/lifestyles. Dr. Frank N. Furter is played up as an outlandish, sexually open character. There is a very suggestive scene of Frank N. Furter seducing the couple and another sex scene between Janet and the beefcake Rocky. While there is no direct nudity, the film is very provocative, right down to the song lyrics. Teenagers who possess a more mature grasp of sexuality and individuality might understand and enjoy the film. Due to its strong sexual nature, parents should be very cautious about allowing their children to view this film.
- Sexual Content
- Cross-dressing, brief nudity, seduction, tons of innuendo.
