Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in Flicka...
Mary O’Hara’s tender story of growing up on a Wyoming horse ranch will likely appeal to anyone fond of the four-legged creature. However, there are some moments of tension (which include some mild profanities) between family members. Young viewers may also be troubled when a horse is attacked by a mountain lion (resulting in a bloody injury) and the ranch hands consider shooting the animal to put it out of pain. A girl in a bikini and a brief sensual comment between husband and wife roundup the sexual content.
