The Intouchables

When an accident leaves Phillippe (Francois Cluzet) a quadriplegic, the millionaire hires an ex-con (Omar Sy) to be his caregiver. Even more surprising than his choice is the unlikely friendship that grows between the two men. This French language film with English subtitles is based on a true story.

Why Is The Intouchables Rated R?

Violence: Characters drive recklessly and lie to police in order to avoid a speeding citation. A man roughs up another man who has parked in a private driveway. Domestic squabbles are heard in a large family.

Sexual Content: Men visit a massage parlor where they are briefly seen getting a massage from scantily dressed women. A quadriplegic vaguely explains how he can obtain sexual satisfaction, which becomes in an ongoing joke. A man makes overt sexual advances toward a female coworker, including asking her to have a bath with him. A male character is seen in the shower on two occasions (no explicit nudity shown). A female character reveals she is having a lesbian relationship.

Language: At least a dozen sexual expletives are heard in French and written in English subtitles, along with numerous other scatological and sexual terms.

Drugs/Alcohol: Characters are seen smoking marijuana and tobacco cigarettes in at least three scenes. In one scene Driss introduces Philippe to marijuana as a way to help him feel better.
