"BATTLE OF THE SEXES is a US comedy drama, based on real events in 1973, in which women's tennis champion Billie Jean King takes up the challenge of former men's champion Bobby Riggs to a winner-takes-all match.

Sex

In one scene, two women have sex; however, there is no strong detail.

There are also some discriminatory references to female tennis players and gay relationships; however, these are not condoned by the work as a whole.

The film also contains some mild bad language (for example, 'shit', 'balls', 'goddamn', 'God', 'Jesus', 'damn') and implied male nudity.

There are also some scenes, which reflect the time period in which the film is set, where adults smoke cigarettes.
