What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that it's a good idea to prepare younger kids beforehand by telling them what Apollo 13 is about; you may want to reassure them, since it is a true story, that the astronauts end up coming home all right. Be prepared for some very tense scenes when the characters are in peril, and note that everyone in Mission Control is a white male (and they smoke a fair bit, which is accurate for the era). Fairly frequent profanity includes "s--t," "damn," "bitch," "ass," and what sounds like "f--k." A demonstration with a beer bottle sliding into a glass has sexual undertones. There's a scene where Jack and his girlfriend are in the shower together; some moaning.
