Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Laggies is a comedy/romance about woman in her late 20s who has no idea what to do with her life or herself -- a theme that could well resonate with older teens, as well as any adults who still feel lost and confused about their direction. There's drinking, including by teens (an adult helps them get the beer in one case; teens drink from red cups in another, and one admits to driving after drinking), some kissing/groping, and a good bit of swearing ("f--k," "s--t," etc.). But with its messages about taking control of your life, the film is likely to hold appeal, and maybe even wisdom, for some teens.
A couple starts kissing and groping each other on the sidewalk before they head behind closed doors. Teens flirt with each other. Sexual references.
Couples and friends bicker. One intense argument ends when a distracted driver plows into a row of mailboxes.
Frequent language includes "f--k," "s--t," "d--k," "c--k," and "butt."
It's important to take control of your life -- not to drift along letting others make key decisions for you. And it's OK to be a mess, as long as you work your way toward a solution. Go for what you want instead of waiting for it to happen to you.

Teens persuade an adult to buy them beer. Teens drink from red cups at a boisterous high school party, but the film doesn't really make a big deal about whether they're getting drunk or not. In another scene, a teen admits that he's been drinking after a minor car accident. Two adults get pretty drunk at a bar; in the morning they share another drink to fend off hangovers.
