Is it Safe For Kids? The Language in The Many Saints of Newark
The Many Saints of Newark is rated R and for good reason.
We can’t imagine kids wanting to watch this unless they’ve already seen The Sopranos. If that’s the case, then they probably will be ok with this movie.
But if the Soprano family saga is new to your family, here’s what you need to know about the language: it’s rampant in this movie.
Every 4 letter curse and swear is used multiple times, with the F-bomb happening too many times to count. And G-d d@mn is in this one as well. Plus the N-word is used as well.
Violence: Is The Many Saints of Newark Ok For Teens and Tweens?
This mob family is super violent and problematic.
From fistfights to bashing in heads to shooting folks and kicking women down the stairs, The Many Saints of Newark is a violent show for a violent mob family.
There’s not too much gore, but there are certain scenes with blood and death that may be too much for teens and tweens to watch.
Is The Many Saints of Newark Safe For Kids: Sex and Nudity
The Sopranos and their extended family are, well, a horny bunch.
There is sex and sexual content discussed and shown on screen throughout the film. Boobs are shown.
