Movie Parental Guide

nudity Rated R for language and some sexual content Some parents might be concerned of a scene in which Dolly Pelliker (Cher) spends the night with a person, who results to be a woman the following day. Drew (Russell) and Karen (Streep) sleep together on several occasions, although no nudity is shown. Karen (Streep) briefly exposes her breast to a coworker who is annoying her. A crying woman is shown from the side being scrubbed down by company officials in a shower after she tested positive for nuclear contamination. Part of her breast is visible.
violence There are a couple of car accidents.
profanity strong language, including uses of 'damn', 'shit', 'fuck' and 'bastard'.
alcohol Some of the characters smoke and drink.
frightening The scenes in which certain characters are showered/scrubbed after they are found to be contaminated could be a bit intense for young children.
