[vc_row][vc_column][wpsm_woobox id=”48463″][/vc_column][/vc_row]The original release of this movie was rated R. Please note: we only review family movies therefore R rated movies will normally contain only a summary review.

The original R movie has heavy use of the “s” and “f” words.There are at least 16 or 17 “f” bombs. Most of the language is due to the therapist encouraging the king to use strong foul language to help cure his speech problems.

It also shows smoking and light alcohol use. There is no real violence, no sex, and no nudity. The movie is well produced and the acting is superb in this period drama although the movie meanders slightly.

If you would like to watch this movie with your teens try to see the re-edited PG-13 version. The language is still the main area that we caution parents with regarding this movie.
