Get Rich or Die Tryin'
Source: Catholic News Service
Disagreeable inner-city drama loosely inspired by the experiences of rap artist Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson, which follows a street thug and aspiring rapper (Jackson) orphaned as a child, who becomes a drug dealer, serves time in prison, survives a near-fatal shooting and eventually turns his life around, quitting crime to pursue his dream of hip-hop stardom. With the film's contrived plot and unsympathetic protagonist, director Jim Sheridan walks a thin line between fashioning a tale of redemption and glorifying the violent "gangsta" lifestyle. Recurring strong violence, including brutal shootings, stabbings, beatings, a bloody scene of implied torture, drug content, sexual situations with partial nudity, a shower scene with rear and fleeting frontal nudity, as well as excessive rough and sexually explicit language. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is O -- morally offensive. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted.
