Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this notorious midnight-movie sensation, though not gory or pornographic like some other "cult" pictures, has extramarital sex scenes showing plenty of bare skin. Characters swear and get drunk under extreme duress. Sexual infidelity is key to the story, and the plot, if it can be taken seriously, ends with a blameless character committing suicide, essentially "getting even" with people whose treacheries hurt him.
Some bare breasts and buns in lyrical, soft-focus sex scenes "enhance" the infidelity subplot.
A fistfight. A climactic suicide via gun that shows spilled blood.
The f-word and s-word in emotional moments.
The movie obviously disapproves of Lisa's cheating on Johnny; most troubling is Johnny's fatal reaction to it. The message, if any, is that poor Johnny deserves better.
Drugs / Tobacco /
Social drinking and a bad bout of drunkenness on behalf of one character. Talk of illegal drugs.
