MONEYBALL is an American sports drama about a baseball team manager who adopts a risky new system for team selection. The film was classified '12' for infrequent strong language.

The film contains two uses of strong language. The BBFC's Guidelines at '12A'/'12' state 'The use of strong language (for example, 'fuck') must be infrequent'.

The film also includes some milder bad language, including uses of 'crap' and 'shit'. One character comments about another, "He's the sort of guy who walks into a room and his dick's already been there for 2 minutes". However, the comment relates to the man's arrogance rather than comprising a direct sex reference. There are also some scenes of mild aggression as the central character throws some furniture around his room while frustrated.
