MPAA Rated R for language throughout, some sexuality/nudity and substance abuse

Sex & Nudity

  • A man gets a steroid injection in the buttocks. We see his butt from the side.
  • A drag queen's fake breasts are shown briefly, and they're referenced again later on in the film.
  • Man and woman are naked in a bathtub. Woman's nipple is briefly shown.
  • For a very brief moment a woman is seen completely naked. She is standing in a tub and a door is closed in front of her. It's barely half a second, if that, but she is in fact completely nude.

Violence & Gore

  • A woman punches a man in the face, and she's later shown with bruised knuckles.


  • 100 uses of "fuck", along with frequent uses of "shit" and "bitch". Mild language includes "damn", "hell", etc.
  • These expletives are typically uttered in quick succession during scenes of emotional outbursts, as well as during confrontations in between characters

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • A man's struggle with addiction, and the effect it has on himself and his wife, is a central plot point.
  • Intense scenes are frequent, especially in the second half, and heavy themes run throughout.
  • It may be sad for some viewers that such a talented singer was made fun of in the past for having a big nose


The Parents Guide items below may give away important plot points.

Sex & Nudity

  • A brief sex scene in bed while she wrapped her legs around the man's waist and some thrusting is visible too.
  • A man and a woman begin to undress each other in bed. She covers her breasts with her hands and they kiss and he begins to thrust but then the scene ends and it shows them after the sex in bed.

Violence & Gore

  • A man hangs himself in his basement with his belt. His found body is not shown but you can see it hanging through the garage window.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • The main character Jackson Maine is an alcoholic and a drug addict. He is shown smoking marijuana a few times and is also shown crushing and snorting pills. He also does a little bit of steroids. He then has a big meltdown at an awards show which forces him to go to rehab. He eventually rehabilitates but he then slips into drinking again. This eventually leads to him committing suicide.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • A man takes his own life by hanging himself by his belt but we don't see the act. Very emotional.
