Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that About Time is a sweet comic romance with a time travel element that shows characters with strong family ties, who are interested in settling down and raising new families. Though there's no nudity, sex is an issue; characters often talk about or think about sex, and we see couples in bed after presumed sex. Language is also fairly strong, with several uses of "f--k," some uses of "s--t," and one use of this phrase: "oh my assing God." The main character's sister is described as being in an abusive relationship and has a drinking problem. She gets into a drunk driving accident, and is shown in the hospital with some scratches and bruises.

Sexual Content

The movie has no nudity, but characters definitely think about and talk about sex. The main character spends a summer obsessing over a pretty houseguest and hoping to sleep with her. He later meets the girl of his dreams on a date, and uses his time travel gift to have sex with her several times in one night though only a bit of kissing and the humorous aftermath is visible. He also kisses a girl at a New Year's Eve party. A woman's naked breasts are visible in a photo art exhibit.

Violence

A character gets into a drunk driving accident that is not graphic. She is seen in the hospital with some scratches and bruises. It is also alluded to that her boyfriend may be abusive toward her, but nothing definitive is said or shown. Some angry arguments and a few comic punches.

Language

Language is very strong, despite the film's sweet nature. "F--k" is heard several times, as well as "s--t," and this phrase: "oh my assing God." A middle finger gesture is shown.

Social Behavior

A man who is given the gift of time learns that it is precious, and that every moment spent with his loved ones counts. Love, family, and loyalty are all strong themes throughout. The idea that one can find beauty in the small moments of every day is reinforced.

Consumerism

Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

The main character's sister has a drinking problem that she overcomes. She is also said to be living with an abusive boyfriend who also has a drinking problem. She leaves that relationship and takes up with a nice guy. Otherwise, characters generally drink socially throughout the film, such as at dinner or at a New Year's Eve party.
