What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Demolition is a dramedy about a man (Jake Gyllenhaal) learning how to live again after his wife's death. In addition to a deadly car crash, it has guns and shooting (a teen fires the weapon), some brutal punching and pummeling (with bloody wounds resulting), and a scene in which furniture, appliances, walls, and windows are smashed with sledgehammers and other tools Language is strong, with uses of "f--k," "s--t," and more. A teen smokes cigarettes and drinks beer, and an adult character is a regular pot smoker (her dealer is shown in one scene). There's additional social drinking and drug references as well. Characters make verbal references to sex, and there's a shot of the main character, naked, on the toilet (nothing sensitive is shown).
