It is based on a true story

This movie was based on what really happened and how the CIA helped to get drugs into the US. There is swearing, yes. but is not like throughout the movie. there are some sex scenes but they are pretty short. and there is no exposure of the human boy.

Good flick -- too bad they didn't tell the real story

This is an entertaining film, and overall well done. It's really is too bad they didn't tell the real Barry story though. The real story would make a great film too, and have the added coolness of being real. I suppose the real story wouldn't fit with their political agenda, so they had to twist it up. As long as you go into it with absolutely no expectation of the actual story (or anything even remotely close), worth seeing.

Unnecessary

Not a great film - mostly just more gratuitous sex, violence and language that we’ve come to know and expect from films. No positive role models. Not enjoyable with family if you’re a bit prudish about watching with other people. For a film about drugs - not much drug use in it. That’s not a complaint, just an observation.

A very entertaining movie

This movie is based off of a true story. And for the most part it seems like they did a good job. While Tom Cruise is an absolute weirdo in real life, he delivers a classic and well acted performance on the screen. As far as bad stuff this movie has it all, violence, sex, swearing, and alcohol and drug use, and smoking. Only watch this if you are prepared for all of that.

NOT FOR UNDER 16!!

I do not understand what is wrong with the other people who reviewed this movie. My husband and I sat down with our two boys age 13 and 14 to watch the movie based on reviews here saying that the sex scenes were really quick and mild almost vague. That is totally false! We found ourselves very uncomfortably watching quick scenes of a couple having pretty graphic sex in various positions. A woman also has an orgasm in an airplane. Also, the F bomb is used here at least 150 times and even in scenarios where it is not natural or necessary. Normally, I can count on the reviews on this website but the easy going reviews on this one were way off base.

Tame a really tame R rated movie

There is some language and mild sex, violence and drugs in background it's still pretty tame

NOT BAD!!

I personally don't think that American made was bad it did have a few swear words and some sex scenes but no nudity it was a good movie and I think that it is fine for people 12 and up but it is all about how mature they are.
