What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Jumpin' Jack Flash is a 1986 comedy with strong language and moments of violence. The central character is Terry Doolittle (Whoopi Goldberg), a computer operator at a bank, who becomes embroiled in an internal spying mystery. She shows courage and determination as the stakes become more life and death. There is strong diversity across the cast, led by Goldberg, but some dated humor about Soviet Russia and other national stereotypes. Violence is occasional but not graphic. But there are gun battles with some death. Sex is referenced rather than shown, with innuendo, and mention of oral sex and prostitution. Language is frequent and coarse and includes "f--k," "motherf----r," "d--k," "a--hole." Consumerism is infrequent, but there are some wealthy and establishment-figure supporting characters who attend high-society functions and live a lavish lifestyle. As part of this, there is some social drinking in moderation depicted. But both alcohol and tobacco consumption is referenced as much as it's shown. Other medicinal drugs are misused in order to trap people and gain information out of them, and there is reference to taking acid.
