What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Draft Day is a drama about the behind-the-scenes negotiations that go into football's annual big recruitment day. Although the movie is all about football, hardly any scenes actually take place on the field, so it will primarily appeal to die-hard NFL fans who know or are curious about the inner workings (however fictional) about the draft process. The movie, which was originally rated R until the MPAA overturned its decision on appeal, features lots of strong language (particularly "s--t," "a--hole," and "bitch," but also "f--k" a time or two). There are some references to sex, some kisses, and a brief shot of a woman's back as she's showering at her boyfriend's house, but nothing too risque. If the language isn't an issue for you, and your teen can handle that this football movie takes place mostly in an office (with general managers on the phone!), Draft Day is fine sports drama.
