Beastly: A Tale as Old as Time, Updated
- Friday, March 04, 2011
- Drugs/Alcohol: Lindy’s dad is shown in a drug buy and his addiction is an important, if off-stage, part of the plot.
- Language/Profanity: Although the Lord’s name is not taken in vain, the entire film is so riddled with foul language of the locker room variety that it was impossible to keep score. Su-- is a particular favorite (“Don’t embrace the su—“ is Kyle’s motto), but as- (often paired with “hole” and “wipe”), bi---, bull----, and the like are a large part of the vocabulary.
- Sex/Nudity: This is a movie about beauty and the opening minutes are packed with suggestive images of the worldly variety: Kyle is shown working out in his underwear, multiple suggestive images of scantily-clad models on billboards. There is some kissing but no sex. Will recalls his school friends losing their virginity at age fifteen.
- Violence: Kyle scuffles with a couple of drug dealers but it’s not graphic. There is an off-screen shooting/murder; the body is shown briefly.
- Witchcraft: It’s a modern retelling of a fairy tale, so one character is a witch. She casts a spell on Kyle and later produces other magical results, though the “how” of that is only hinted at.
