What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that The Gambler is a remake of a same-named 1974 drama and stars Mark Wahlberg. Expect some violence -- punching, fighting, and a little blood, as well as shouting and arguing and general tension. Language is extremely strong, with multiple uses of "f--k" and "s--t." Topless women are seen in a strip club, and the main character kisses one of his students, with implied sex. The main character also drinks heavily and passes out. The movie has enough detail to be considered a cautionary tale against gambling, but at the same time it makes gambling look dangerously alluring. And even though the main character is a much-liked professor, he's in no way a positive role model.
