Wondering if House of Gucci is ok for kids? House of Gucci is rated R for language, sexual content, and violence, the trifecta. While some teens may want to watch for Lady Gaga, House of Gucci falls flat and glorifies her character’s misdeeds. Here’s what parents need to know in this House of Gucci Parents Guide.
House of Gucci Parents Guide
House of Gucci is inspired by the shocking true story of the family behind the Italian fashion empire. Adapted from Sara Gay Forden’s book, The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamour, and Greed, the title says it all about the movie. When Patrizia Reggiani (Lady Gaga), an outsider from humble beginnings, marries into the Gucci family, her unbridled ambition begins to unravel the family legacy and triggers a reckless spiral of betrayal, decadence, revenge, and ultimately… murder.
What is House of Gucci Rated?
House of Gucci is Rated R for language, some sexual content, and brief nudity and violence according to the MPAA which means it may not be suitable for children under 17.
There is a lot of strong language including sh*t, bit*h, a**, damn, and fu*k.
There is quite a bit of sex in House of Gucci with people on top of each other, some thrusting up and down, and also some brief nudity. You can see nipples through a shirt and also in a bubble bath. You see a naked behind.
Characters drink alcohol and there is a lot of excessive smoking.
Characters are shot and you can see blood. A man grabs a woman by the throat and threatens her.
Is House of Gucci Appropriate for Kids Under 17?
House of Gucci is essentially a soap opera. If kids are easily influenced by lavish clothing and wealth, then perhaps this isn’t the best film for them. I wouldn’t recommend it for teens under 16. At 2 hours and 38 minutes, this movie goes on and on.
Lady Gaga and Adam Driver are excellent; one being eccentric and the other being understated to balance each other out. However, this film is like a true crime series. Jared Leto’s accent is so bad; I can’t tell if Ridley Scott had him do that on purpose to add some humor.
Some of the characters are so nasty and the drive and desperation to climb to the top is sickening. But then again, can you blame a girl for trying? Family loyalty is pushed to the wayside all in the name of power and money.
The clothing and costuming are beautiful eye candy, and for a moment you can understand Patrizia’s motivation. However, I feel like I never got a clear answer of why she tries to kill her husband.
House of Gucci is a lot of fluff. It tries to be couture, but it’s not.
