Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this movie is about a man posing as another to acquire his wealth and lifestyle ¿ a process that involves homoerotic affairs, murder, and countless lies. Characters drink, smoke, have sex, lie, curse, get in fights and kill one another. Particularly upsetting are two of the murders that involve Tom bludgeoning characters to death. The pacing of the film is rather slow and will likely bore younger viewers used to more contemporary storytelling - despite the presence of teen idol actors.

Sexual Content

A man listens to a couple have sex. Several affairs take place. Two men bathe together.

Violence

Two gruesome bludgeonings as well as other murders and some fights.

Language

Not applicable

Social Behavior
