Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Violet & Daisy is a quirky, comedic crime movie about two female contract killers. It comes from the Oscar-winning writer of Precious but feels more akin to the style of Quentin Tarantino. As such, violence and language are both very strong. The girls shoot and kill many victims and perform a comically sadistic dance on their corpses called the "internal bleeding dance" (it makes blood ooze from the victims' noses and mouths). Swearing includes "f--k," "s--t," "c--t," and especially "bitch." Plus, the girls are obsessed with a fictitious pop star ("Barbie Sunday") and are saving money to buy expensive dresses from the star's personal line.
The movie opens with a verbal joke about a doctor sleeping with his patients. One of the girls takes a shower in one scene, but nothing is shown (she's behind a shower curtain).
The two main characters shoot and kill several men over the course of the movie, while barely changing their expressions. But perhaps most gruesome is their "internal bleeding dance," wherein they dance on top of their corpses, making blood ooze out of the noses and mouths. They pile up the corpses in a bathtub, and one girl takes a shower while standing on top of them. A man is bashed with a fire extinguisher. Additionally, the girls briefly get into a fight and hit each other.
Many uses of "f--k," "s--t," "c--t," "bitch," "hell," "damn," and a use of "God" as an exclamation.
One of the main characters learns to think of another person before herself, giving up a coveted item for her. But on the other hand, both main characters are hired killers, leaving behind a pile of corpses with no consequences and no remorse. The two lead characters find their friendship tested and survive. But they're also obsessed with purchasing a new dress endorsed by a celebrity.
