Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that the content in this smart romantic dramedy is age-appropriate for teens and up, but its thoughtful exploration of relationships may speak more to those in college and older. It has a sweet-yet-realistic view of relationships that's refreshing given the usual formulaic dreck in this genre. Do expect some frank talk about sex (as well as some kissing and an implied shower sex scene), drinking (sometimes to excess), and swearing (including one "f--k").
More talk than action -- there's some kissing and hugging, and one scene shows a couple supposedly trying to have sex in the shower (although all viewers see is rustling behind the shower curtain). There's also some frank discussion among friends about sex, including references to topics like hand jobs and anal sex. A young teenager counsels her older brother on how to navigate relationships.
Loud arguing among couples. Some plate-breaking. A man punches another at a bar.
Fairly frequent use of words like "bitch," "screw," "skank," and "s--t," plus one instance of "f--k." Other words include "hell," "damn," "goddamn," "ass," etc.
Love doesn't conquer all in this romantic dramedy, but no matter how complicated or troublesome, it's portrayed as being absolutely necessary. It has the power to change and serves a source of wisdom. The movie also realistically shows that love alone isn't necessarily enough to keep a relationship going -- it's only one of a number of elements that need to exist.
