What Parents Need to Know

logo for common sense media

Parents need to know that Rounders is a 1998 movie in which Matt Damon must choose between living the whirlwind life of a high-stakes poker player or continue attending law school with his long-term girlfriend. There's frequent profanity, including regular use of "f--k." Topless dancers are shown performing in a strip club; in the next scene, one of the strippers is shown on the verge of performing oral sex on a customer. Characters are beaten up and bloodied by poker players they're trying to con as well as by lackeys in the Russian mob. Reference made to one of the lead characters getting beaten up as a child by his abusive father. Offhand jokes reference one of the characters getting raped while in prison. There's drinking and smoking. Overall the movie explores the theme of whether it's better to pursue the safety and stability of a regular career or to throw caution to the winds to pursue one's passion and talents. This theme, coupled with the mature content, make this best for older teens and adults.
