BAD REPUTATION is a US documentary about the life and career of rock star Joan Jett.

Language

There is infrequent use of very strong language ('c**t'), in addition to frequent use of strong language ('f**k'). Milder terms include 'whore', 'slut', 'balls', 'ass', 'pissed', 'bullshit' and 'shit', as well as use of the 'middle finger' gesture. There is also infrequent use of homophobic terms including 'dyke', 'fags' and 'mincing', but the work as a whole does not endorse or condone discriminatory language or behaviour.

Sex

References to attitudes to sex in 1970s are accompanied by footage and photographs featuring female breast nudity. Several promotional photographs show a teenage girl in sexualised poses, wearing revealing clothing. There are also occasional strong verbal sex references.

Other issues include brief verbal references to sexual violence, occasional references to sexism, and infrequent sight of marijuana misuse.
