Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Burt is an iconoclast -- he doesn't follow rules, ignores authorities, and tries to sweet-talk his way out of everything. While nothing here is particularly violent or sexual, Burt's antics may prompt kids to follow that example. Burt also lights his lawn on fire when a neighbor complains that his unkempt yard is lowering property values, and sleeps with two different women and flirts with a third.

Sexual Content

Burt sleeps separately with two different women. Both times, the women are shown naked and covered by sheets in bed. Burt kisses Doris and Ada, but there's nothing more graphic than that. Burt is solicited by hookers and befriends and kisses a drag queen.


Burt drives on the wrong side of the road, nearly causing several accidents. Burt witnesses a car accident caused by road rage that's played for laughs. A rattlesnake nearly bites Burt. Burt sets his lawn on fire when he hears that the neighbors think his unkempt lawn is lowering property values. When he races, Burt takes few precautions and crashes a few times.


Some salty language, including "hell," "testicles," "bastard," "goddamn," "prick," "chickens--t," and "ass."

Social Behavior

Burt doesn't follow rules and tries to talk people into bending the rules for him. He speeds and gets pulled over by a cop, pees on his tree and teaches a neighborhood boy to do the same, lights his yard on fire when he hears that a neighbor thinks his lawn is lowering property values. Burt also accepts everyone just the way they are and expresses the joy of following his dreams.


Indian, a motorcycle brand, is prominently featured.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Burt doesn't drink or smoke and lectures others to abstain as well -- but many of the people around him do smoke and drink.
