Basketball drama light on character, heavy on swearing.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Boogie is a sports drama written and directed by Eddie Huang about a talented high school basketball player (Taylor Takahashi) who dreams of playing for the NBA while dealing with family dysfunction. Language is strong and frequent, with use of everything from "s--t" and "f--k" to "hos" and the slur "nigga." Characters kiss and are implied to have had sex; there's sexual humor and conversation. There's also a threat of physical abuse as well as verbal abuse. Characters smoke (possibly tobacco, possibly pot) and drink. Despite the main character's lack of self-control, he does show determination and perseverance to reach his dream.
