What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Pawn Shop Chronicles is a shockingly violent comedy in three segments, each centered around a small town-Louisiana pawn shop and each crossing over with the others at some point. Violence is very strong, including female sex slaves being held captive in cages, naked and covered in filth. There's also shooting, stabbing, fighting, death, and blood. A man is shown getting sexual pleasure (and masturbating) to his army of naked women, and they're shown with full-frontal nudity in several shots. Language is also extremely strong, with many uses of "f--k," "s--t," and most other four-letter words. And drugs are also an issue: The first segment concentrates on meth addicts trying to steal more drugs from their dealer; they're shown under the influence, but not actually taking drugs.
