Parents need to know that The Babe is a 1992 biopic in which John Goodman plays baseball legend Babe Ruth. For parents looking for baseball movies, it’s worth mentioning that this movie focuses just as much, if not more, on Ruth's exploits off the field as on, including his voracious appetites for food, drink, and sex. Ruth is shown arriving at the ballpark extremely drunk (but plays anyway), drunk at parties in bars and speakeasies, and, in one scene, engaged in a champagne guzzling contest with a Ziegfeld Folly performer who would later be his wife. Cigar and cigarette smoking, tobacco chewing. In some scenes, Ruth's first wife, in the midst of arguments or moments of anxiety, is shown taking prescription pills of some kind. During an argument, Ruth's first wife confronts him on rumors that he slept with four women at the same time. While trying to conceive a child, Ruth's first wife tells him that they've already had sex three times that day. During a raucous party, a couple is shown in a bathtub (no nudity). Some fighting in bench-clearing brawls and in the stands. A young Ruth is dropped off and left at a boys' school because he's deemed "incorrigible," and contends with bullies who verbally abuse him due to his weight; in one scene Ruth attacks a boy with a pair of scissors, poking the boy in the forehead.
