Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Wing Commander is a 1999 sci-fi movie with clichéd characters and a slow-moving, hard-to-follow story line. Characters talk of sex and masturbation, make innuendoes during (clothed) post-coital cuddling, and debate whether or not testosterone or estrogen make one a better fighter pilot. Profanity is used fairly often: "son of a bitch," "bulls--t," and "piss," among other expletives. A newly arrived fighter pilot tries endearing himself to those around him by breaking out a bottle of scotch; characters drink and act drunk. There is sci-fi violence: battles between spaceships, between laser-gun-toting humans and aliens, and some blood and death. The only redeeming aspect to this movie is that women are strong leaders who display as much (if not more) courage and valor than men, unlike in so many sci-fi and war-themed movies in which women are little more than damsels in distress.
