What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Amores Perros is an Oscar-nominated movie from 2000 in Spanish with English subtitles. Lots of bloody violence and some gore mean it's not for the faint of heart. It's especially not for animal lovers: A dog-fighting ring is a major plot element, and violent, bloody dog fights are shown, as are the bloody bodies of injured and dead dogs. People are shot and beaten a lot, too, and the central event is a horrific car crash. Lots of blood, injuries, gunshots, a stabbing, kidnappings, and beatings show blood and injuries. One sex scene shows a teen's bare breasts; several sex scenes show thrusting, groping, and kissing with tongue. Sex and violence are paired by cutting back and forth between a sex scene and a man being kidnapped and beaten bloody. Several characters smoke, and there's a lot of background smoking. Lots of drinking is shown at the dog fights, and a few children are at the fights, too. A woman drinks and ignores a crying infant. A man offers rum several times to someone he has kidnapped and tied up. Almost nonstop profanity in the first half of the movie, translated from Spanish, includes "f--k," "s--t," "a--hole," "f--got," and more. The title is translated as "Love's a Bitch."
