Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this movie includes frequent sexual references and some images. While the latter tend to be brief and comic (a woman who works as a maid dresses up as an ooh-la-la French maid to entertain her boyfriend), the language is explicit, frequent, and usually witty, a means for the women characters to express their frustrations and desires (dialogue includes more than 20 f-words, usually used to describe sex). Some characters say cruel or gossipy things to others (a husband tells his wife she has a "fat ass," some friends say one woman's husband is "gay"). Characters drink wine, beer, and liquor in social situations; Olivia smokes pot in her bedroom and with her boyfriend. Olivia repeatedly calls her ex, a married man.

- Upset at a couple cutting in line at a store, Jane tries to storm out and walks smack into a glass wall; she goes to the hospital and ends up with a bruised, cut face; Chrisine repeatedly bangs into furniture or trips, but is more embarrassed than injured.
- Frequent uses of the f-word (over 20) and slang for sexual activity and genitalia; characters also use s-word and other curse words.
