Plain Clothes Parent guide

Sex & Nudity
Sex & Nudity Reason
Nick reads a poem for English class that is filled with sexual innuendo. It is revealed that teachers in both past and present had affairs with students. Some brief vulger sexual humor.

Violence & Gore
Violence & Gore Reason
Surprisingly strong for a PG rated film from 1987. The film begins with a man stumbling into a classroom and dying with a knife in his back (some blood). A body is found with a knife in the chest (not too gory but there is some blood and it may be disturbing to some). Some fist fighting. A woman hit over the head with a baseball bat (happens off screen but we see the injury with some blood). A dog is shot (heard not seen). A man stabbed in the leg with a pencil he then removes it (disturbing but not bloody). A man knocked out with a bowling pin. A man shot to death(seen from a distance with no blood).

Profanity Reason
1 F word, a few S words(4+), a few uses of pussy, at least 1 ass, some vulgar teenage slang used throughout.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking
Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking Reason
No drugs. Possibly some smoking and drinking but I don't remember for sure.

Frightening & Intense Scenes
Frightening & Intense Scenes Reason
The climax where a cop is stalked by the killer is intense. The scenes of dead bodies may be disturbing to some.
