Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this fact-based dramedy (co-star Seth Rogen's real-life friend, Will Reiser, wrote the movie based on his own experiences) tackles some pretty heavy themes -- particularly the idea of facing the specter of death before the age of 30 -- that could overwhelm young teens attracted by the film's stars: Rogen and (500) Days of Summer's Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Expect plenty of strong language (including "f--k," "s--t," and more) and some sexually charged talk and scenes (including partial female nudity), plus drug use (both medicinal and recreational).
A man and a woman are shown having sex (breasts are visible, but genitals are not). Frank discussions between two men about how to hit on women and get them to have sex with them. A woman is caught kissing a man who's not her boyfriend.
A guy curses out a woman and calls her derogatory names in front of someone else. Other examples of strong anger directed at a female character.
Frequent use of "f--k," "s--t," "d--k," "c--t," "c--k," "p---y," "a--hole," "ass," "motherf--ker," "oh my God," and more.
The movie's main message is that adversity need not break you; cliched as it may sound, it can make you confront yourself and those around you as you seek a more fulfilling (and healthier in more ways than one) life.
Some name-dropping and labels on display, including iPod, The View, Jeep, Dwell magazine, Facebook, Toyota, Rite Aid, and more.
Drugs / Tobacco /
Some social drinking. Medicinal and recreational drug use. Bongs are visible; weed-laced brownies are shared.
