Parents need to know that The Right Stuff is a 1983 movie based on the nonfiction book by Tom Wolfe about America's first astronauts and the beginning of NASA and the "Space Race." The first astronauts and the test pilots who proved that it was possible to break the sound barrier and go into space are shown to be heroic, brave, and fearless; however, with the exception of John Glenn, these men are also shown to be "rough around the edges" -- men who slept with younger female fans, cursed, drank, and made off-color jokes. Expect to hear "f--k" as well as "pr--k," "s--t," and "p---sy." Some jokes involving sex and masturbation. A woman performs a naked fan dance in a rodeo arena at a massive party; very brief nudity. One of the astronauts is fond of imitating a popular comedy bit from that time in which a white comedian portrayed a Latino "astronaut." The bit involves broken English and a thick stereotypical accent; Latinos are shown to be angered by this astronaut's imitation. There are no women scientists shown working in the space program, and certainly no female astronauts. Nonetheless, what shines through is the bravery of the first astronauts as they face the anything-can-happen nature of those early-manned space missions and their new statuses as "American heroes" when back home.
