Still shot from the movie: Bobby.


Bobby is about the eventful day of June 6, 1968, when a young Palestinian man shot U.S. Senator Robert F. Kennedy at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles. While the assassination is fact, everything else in the movie is pure Hollywood fantasy intended to give the viewer a glimpse of the political climate of the time. Get the movie review and more. »

Why Is Bobby Rated R?

This U.S. R-rated movie (ratings will differ in other countries) includes detailed drug use where a man convinces two other younger men that using acid will bring them closer to God. Once “high,” they toss furniture out of the hotel window and one wanders around naked (rear male nudity is seen). Language includes many mild and moderate profanities along with a half dozen sexual expletives. The assassination scene vividly depicts people being shot, and shows suffering victims on the floor and covered in blood. Sexual content includes the aforementioned nudity, a woman seen in her underwear getting dressed after having sexual relations with a married man, and an about to be married couple passionately kiss with later sexual activity implied. Many characters smoke cigarettes (which is an accurate depiction of the period).
