What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this movie has strong language for a PG-13, with a wider range of bad words than normally occur in movies of this kind. There are a series of jokes about the inability of a Japanese ballplayer to curse correctly. The movie has non-explicit sexual situations and explicit sexual references. Characters discuss what made sex with each other the best either of them had ever had and make Viagra jokes. There's a reference to an alcohol abuse problem, and there are many scenes in a bar. A strength of the movie is the portrayal of intelligent and capable African-American and female characters.
