House Of Gucci Age Appropriate Parents Guide
Let’s take a look at what parents need to know before letting their kids watch House Of Gucci.
Language: House of Gucci contains some harsh language, with profanity used throughout. Lookout words include: f*ck, b*tch, bullsh*t, d*mn and more.
Sexual Content/Nudity: The film does show some nudity, with shots of characters in the bath tub and bare bottoms being shown onscreen. There are a couple of graphic sex scenes that include oral sex and thrusting.
Alcohol/Drugs: House of Gucci contains consumption of alcohol and constant use of tobacco.
Violence: The film contains violent scenes where a character is shown pushing and threatening his wife. There is also a scene in which a dead body is shown and someone is shot with a gun and killed.
The best thing about House of Gucci are the stellar performances given by Lady Gaga, Jared Leto, Al Pacino, and Adam Driver. Lady Gaga enchants as Patrizia Reggiani, the spitfire who marries Gucci heir Maurizio, played by Driver. The duo have terrific chemistry onscreen and are most fun to watch during the couple’s volatile moments. Al Pacino plays Maurizio’s uncle and Gucci chairman, Aldo. At all times, Pacino does what Pacino does best and dominates the screen with his gangster like raspy voice and powerful presence. Paired with Jared Leto, who plays Aldo’s son Paolo, audiences could not ask for a better duo. Leto was by far the most entertaining of the bunch. His physical transformation was astonishing as he donned a fat suit and a bald cap. He was unrecognizable as the dolt Gucci heir. Along with his altered appearance, Leto masterfully goes full-tilt as the wannabe designer who clearly has a few screws loose in his simpleton mind. Leto delivers some of the most memorable lines in the film and provides much-needed laughs at key moments.
House of Gucci is over-the-top and a bit absurd at times, and I suppose it is this grandiose tale that captures the interest of the viewers and keeps their attention for the entire 2 hour and 45 minute run time. The plot will remind one of a True Crime story involving greed, betrayal, and eventually murder. The most surprising part of the entire story is the realization of just how bad of businessmen the Gucci clan were. Director Ridley Scott had much to work with in the savory story, and audiences will appreciate the glimpse into the two-decade period the movie covers, as he really sinks his teeth into some of the meatier moments.
House of Gucci may feel like a soap opera at times, or at the very least, a bit of a satire of the real events that took place. This leaves this author perplexed by the film’s anticlimactic moments, which felt rushed and disconnected from the rest of the story. There was so much to savor in the quieter moments of the film, that when it came to the big revelations they just felt unispired. Perhaps Scott decided to focus more on the relationships of the characters and their interactions, than the capstone portions feeling they offered more to the viewer. Indeed they may have, as I found them quite enjoyable, but this movie could have been much more powerful if the attention spanned the entirety of the film. Regardless, people will turn out to watch it because of the name, and most will be shocked to learn of the hidden inner workings of the Gucci family as a result.
