FIGHTING WITH MY FAMILY is a comedy sports drama in which a young woman follows her dream of becoming a professional wrestler.

Language

There is use of moderate bad language and uses of several milder swear words too.

Sex

There are frequent, mostly comic, sex references to sexual behaviour, much of which takes place during a scene where wrestlers are taught to 'banter'.

Violence

There is a fight in a pub in which pool balls and cues are used as weapons. Wrestling violence includes a body slam onto drawing pins, as well as other violence which takes place within the context of wrestling matches. There is no blood or injury detail shown.

There are fleeting references to drugs and more adult themes such as suicide. More information is available for parents about the content of this film, and all other films on the main BBFC website and the free to download app.
