What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that One Chance is an underdog comedy/biopic of Britain's Got Talent winner Paul Potts (James Corden), who went from being a cell phone salesman to performing at Royal Albert Hall. The Welsh opera singer's story is likely relatively unknown outside the U.K., so appeal among American tweens and teens may not be high. But the movie has laughs, romance (including kissing and a fairly demure wedding night scene), and dramatic tension, even if you know it's going to end with a victory. The main character is bullied both as a child as an adult; he's beaten up and threatened with fists and a chain. He also lands in the hospital a few times but always recovers. The language occasionally includes British slang/curses like "tosser," "sod off," and more, and there's some drinking in pubs. In the end, the movie encourages audiences to follow their dreams, no matter how unlikely they seem.
