Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that The Birder's Guide to Everything is a coming-of-age film with a little bit of sexuality and lots of strong and crude language. Though there's plenty of humor in the movie, the untimely death of the central teen boy's mother is a theme that runs throughout, adding some sadness and grief to the story. There's some very mild flirting and a quick peek at a woman's breast, plus a few drug references.

Sexual Content

Two teens flirt, and eventually share a sweet kiss. A scene very briefly shows a woman's breast. One teen character constantly talks about sex, often with crude references.


One scene features a wounded animal who must be put out of its misery, complete with some graphic sound effects.


Quite a lot of swearing, including "bulls--t," "---hole," "bitch," "d--k," "c--k," "slut," " p---y," "hell" and one use of "f--k."

Social Behavior

David learns to let go of the past and embrace the present. In the process, he's able to forgive his father for a perceived slight, allowing the two of them to bond over the tragic untimely death of David's mother.
