Is Nope suitable for children under 17?
Nope is not intended for children and is fine for kids; the recommended age for Nope is at least 16, and you should be mature enough to handle the content. However, I would caution against even older ages.
Expect to see blood and gore, scenes of intense violence, smoking, alcohol, drug use, and profanity by some of the characters. There is no nudity or sexual content.
