What Parents Need to Know

logo for common sense media

Parents need to know that Catch Me if You Can is a 2002 Steven Spielberg crime biography based on a true story, in which Leonardo DiCaprio plays a teenage con artist who managed to convince people at various times that he was an airline pilot, a doctor, and a lawyer, while making and cashing forged checks all over the world. There's some mature material, including the fact that the main character is a con man who never considers the impact that his lies and scams may have or the risks he's taking until it wreaks havoc on his relationship with a woman he seems to honestly love, despite all his myriad false pretenses. It includes some non-explicit sexual situations and a negotiation with a call girl. A character says that her parents refuse to see her following her out-of-wedlock pregnancy and abortion. Characters drink and smoke and use strong language, including one instance of "f--k." The scene where Frank's parents tell him they're getting a divorce may be upsetting to some kids.
