Movie Parental Guide

nudity Lots of dialogue about various sexual topics and acts. One soldier pulls out his penis (not shown, but talks about it) in order to entice a Vietnamese hooker. Some sexual insults from the drill sergeant
violence A lot of war violence, including frequent shooting. The more graphic instances are mentioned below: A man kills his drill sergeant, blood sprays. A man kills himself with a rifle on-screen in an intense and emotional sequence.
profanity 80 or so uses of "fuck" ( some used sexually ) and 22 of "shit" (along with at least 5 uses of "bullshit" and 1 use of "shitty"), along with at least 5 uses of "ass," 11 of "asshole" and "hell," 5 of "son of a bitch," 1 of "Jesus Christ," 1 use of "whore," Most of the language is used in the first half of the movie Derogatory terms for African Americans, the Vietnamese, Italians and Jews.
alcohol Several scenes with people smoking cigarettes. A scene in which soliders are in their bunks smoking pot. Brief and not graphic.
frightening The first 45 minutes of the film are intense because of boot camp training. Families attempting to flee Vietnam are shot at from a helicopter and then joked about. The dehumanization of soldiers is a key theme throughout the movie, being shown to varying degrees. This is a classic, intense, emotional movie. It is good for older teenagers and up, if they are mature enough to handle it.
