The film gives Baby a sympathetic, loving foster father and a tragic backstory, but these attempts at emotional/positive themes are secondary to the stronger negative takeaways regarding violence and crime.
Positive Role Models & Representations
Constant, very unsettling action violence includes many mass shootings (generally of faceless "henchmen" types). Characters, including ones viewers are likely to sympathize with, are suddenly and brutally killed -- usually shot, but in one scene a character falls from a great height. Flying blood and gore, dead bodies, and use of big, flashy guns, including machine guns. Dead body stored in a trunk. A man's parents are killed in a car accident, which is replayed several times (viewers see a fast-approaching car and splintering glass); another car accident leaves the passengers covered in blood and one dead. Character run over by a car. Much of the action centers on getaway drives; these scenes are thrilling, but the violence is glamorized. (Remind teen viewers not to try this at home!)
Characters kiss and talk graphically about sex they've had or are going to have, including jokes about role playing and "getting it on." The camera ogles female bodies, lingering on legs and breasts; female characters are frequently shown in revealing clothing, and their looks are discussed and rated.
Frequent swearing includes "f--k," "f--king," "motherf--ker," "s--t," "ass," "a--hole," "goddamn," "hell," "damn," "p--sies," "bitch." One man calls another a "retard" and a "freak" and asks if he has any "balls."
In an extended segment, Baby works as a Goodfella's pizza delivery guy; the company's logo and pizza box are shown several times.
