Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that the protagonist is a devout bachelor, now middle-aged, who has left behind many women. Characters use curse words (mostly in conversation, and at the end, during a fight), smoke, drink, and use drugs (as well as slang for drugs, especially marijuana). Stereotypical bikers briefly assault Don at the end, leaving him bloodied and unconscious. The film includes sexual imagery (a post-sex morning awakening, an adolescent girl nude [not explicit] and in her underwear) and references (to past relationships).
