Netflix’s most recently acquired Sony movie is Big George Foreman, the sports drama chronicling the fascinating life of heavyweight champion George Foreman. This biographical movie was directed by George Tillman Jr. from a screenplay he co-wrote with Frank Baldwin.

Critics were unimpressed with Big George Foreman, with the movie only generating a 42% “rotten” score on Rotten Tomatoes. However, audiences have been far more receptive to the movie, and it currently has a 96% audience score. The film is a pretty paint-by-numbers sports drama without anything we haven’t seen done before, but for those interested in the boxer and who enjoy inspirational true stories, Big George Foreman is worth the watch.

Given that the film is already in Netflix’s Top 10, it seems like countless subscribers are happy they finally have the chance to watch it at home on streaming. If you’re considering watching it this weekend and aren’t sure if it’s an appropriate choice for family movie night, we can let you know the age rating and provide details on mature content you might want to be aware of before popping the popcorn.

Big George Foreman parents guide

Big George Foreman has been rated PG-13, which means parental guidance is suggested for anyone under 13 years old. The movie received this rating for some sports violence.

This movie is pretty tame for the most part and likely could have gotten a PG rating if it weren’t for the intensity of some of the boxing matches. If you’ve ever watched boxing in real life, you probably have an idea of what to expect. The movie does include some scenes that show close-ups of punches, and there is some blood shown, but it’s not gratuitous.

In terms of sexuality, the movie has no nudity or sex scenes, but there is some kissing and references to adultery. The language is fairly mild, with words like “piss” and “damn” being the strongest. Overall, Big George Foreman is an inspiring and uplifting movie with positive messages about fortitude and forgiveness.
