Rotten Tomatoes® Score

Critics Consensus: Vice takes scattershot aim at its targets, but writer-director Adam McKay hits some satisfying bullseyes -- and Christian Bale's transformation is a sight to behold.

Irreverent, mature biopic about VP Dick Cheney.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Vice is an irreverent biopic from writer/director Adam McKay (The Big Short) about Vice President Dick Cheney (Christian Bale), who served under President George W. Bush from 2001 to 2009. Expect frequent strong language, with many uses of "f--k," "s--t," "son of a bitch," and more. Heart surgery is shown briefly, and there are flashes of violence, including images of war, bombings, shooting, and torture. There's also fighting, a car crash, and an injury. A married couple is shown in bed together (not at all racy), and there's a brief, nonsexual glimpse of a naked male bottom. The main character starts out with a drinking problem; he gets drunk, drives drunk, and has a hangover. But he later stops drinking and never returns to it. Other characters drink socially; some smoke. Like The Big Short, this is an incendiary movie that may attract the attention of politically minded older teens.
