Dirty Harry sequel addresses sexism; lots of violence.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that The Enforcer is the third movie in the Dirty Harry series, featuring Clint Eastwood as the homicide cop who goes out and looks for trouble when it doesn't happen to find him. As in the other movies, there's plenty of shooting, bloody bullet wounds, knifings, explosions, and, this time around, bias against women who want to become homicide detectives. Extremely brief nudity -- breasts, pubic hair, a penis -- is seen when a criminal drops through the ceiling of what seems to be a pornographic film shoot. Kate makes sexual references to phallic tall buildings. She also clarifies that Harry uses a .44 Magnum because the bullets have "penetration." Harry pretends to be a client at a "massage parlor," which offers him "32 different positions of lovemaking." Expect to hear "f--k," "s--t," "bastard," "bitch," "ass," and "numb nuts."
