What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Rookie of the Year is a goofy '90s family comedy in which a 12-year-old becomes a star pitcher for the Chicago Cubs and takes them to playoff glory. Strong language includes "s--t" and "hell," plus a moment where "f--k" is strongly implied (but not said). You can also expect lots of name-calling along the lines of "funky butt lovin'," "big butt," "underwear sniffer," and "you suck." A tween boy describes a tween girl as being "stacked." Henry's mom punches a sleazy manager in the face. Characters smoke cigars and cigarettes briefly, and adults drink cocktails at a club. Henry's lucrative endorsement deals include some product placement. Despite the movie's unrealistic premise, it has positive messages about the importance of family and friends, and Henry shows that he has integrity by choosing those he loves over the glamour of life as a professional athlete.
