Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that main character Max is selfish and greedy and doesn't care who he hurts to get ahead. His whole life is about making money, and he revels in the fact that he's good at it, even though people hate him. Wine and drinking figure prominently in the storyline, and the romance between two characters gets a little steamy (they flirt, tear each other's clothes off, and end up in bed), but it's nothing teens haven't seen before. That said, most teens probably won't be too interested in this one, since it focuses on more mid-life issues.

Sexual Content

Romance and flirting between characters, sexual banter, bedroom scene, female characters in tight dresses with cleavage.


Crazy driving while talking on a cell phone. Max falls into an empty pool and can't get out. Fanny floods it with water while he's in there.


Pretty mild: "Hell," "ass," "bullocks."

Social Behavior

Max is greedy and selfish and will walk over anyone to get ahead. People hate him, and he relishes it.


Sanyo; Max relies heavily on his Treo.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Wine, drinking, and getting drunk figure prominently in the storyline.
