THE BLIND SIDE is a drama, based on fact, and which concerns the life of American football player Michael Oher.

Violence

In one scene, a man pulls a gun on Michael, who responds with several punches. During the scene, a woman and a baby are knocked over and the gun is discharged into the air.

Language

There is infrequent moderate bad language ('bitch)', as well as some milder bad language (eg 'son of a bitch', 'crap', 'ass', 'pissed').

Sex

In one scene, a man says of Michael's adoptive sister 'You tapped that?... Your fine white sister... I likes me some of that mummy-daughter action.' Other sex references include a reference to Michael having been taken to a 'titty bar' and a threat made by his adoptive mother that cut off his penis if he gets a girl pregnant at college.

There are also some drug references, in scenes in which Michael's mother is referred to as being 'on that crack pipe' and having a drug problem.
