what parents need to know

Parents need to know that this movie has some strong language, smoking, and drinking, as well as tense and scary accident scenes. A character is badly hurt, and another character has been disabled as a result of a racing accident. A character betrays a member of his family and there are other tense confrontations. There are also a lot of girls in revealing outfits, with tiny T-shirts promoting various racing sponsors.

what families can talk about

  • Families can talk about how teammates decide when to help each other and when to compete against each other and how to maintain focus on what really matters. They should also talk about the choices made by Jimmy and Beau when one of the other drivers is injured and about why Jimmy's brother behaves the way he does. They may also want to discuss why people continue to compete in and buy tickets for such dangerous sports, given tragic losses like champion Dale Earnhardt.

Rotten: Sylvester Stallone's homoerotic car-racing actioner delivers something between Speed Racer and gay porn.

Rotten: Driven is all over the map in more ways than one.
