Making the Grades

Because we usually only review G, PG, and PG-13 movies at Parent Previews we did not review this title. For your convenience, we have provided some brief information about the film's synopsis and content.

Synopsis:

The Tierney family has a long history serving in the New York City Police Department. Knowing what it will do to their sense of Pride and Glory, it is very difficult for Ray Tierney (Edward Norton) to tell his Police Chief father Francis Tierney (Jon Voight) that the perpetrator behind the case he is presently investigating is Jimmy Egan (Colin Farrell)-- his bother-in-law, Francis' son-in-law and a cop.

Director: Gavin O'Connor

Cast: Edward Norton, Colin Farrell, Noah Emmerich, Jon Voight.

Content Information:

This additional information about the movie's content is taken from the notes of various Canadian Film Classification boards:

Violence:

- Frequent and prolonged portrayals of graphic violence (some gory and grotesque images shown).

- Frequent gun, weapons, and hand-to-hand violence (some blood and detail shown).

- A suicide is implied (some blood and detail shown).

- An infant is in peril.

- Portrayal of a surgical procedure and some corpses (blood and detail shown).

- Frequent disturbing and offensive scenes.

Sexual Content:

- Breast nudity is shown in a non-sexual context.

- Sexual references and innuendo.

- Sexual activity is implied.

Language:

- Pervasive use of the sexual expletive (once in a sexual context).

- Frequent use of profanities including scatological slang and vulgar expressions.

- Infrequent use of ethno-cultural slurs.

Drugs and Alcohol:

- Detailed and graphic portrayals of substance abuse.

- Tobacco use shown.

Of Special Note:

Jon Voight plays a father embarrassed by his family's past in the movie National Treasure. Edward Norton fights the establishment with super-hero power in The Incredible Hulk. And Colin Farrell charts his own path in The New World.
