Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that the movie will seem too dated for many teens, but older kids serious about film may be interested. Though lively, witty, and watchable for older teens, parents should be cautioned that this is not a movie for kids. The movie would be at least a PG-13 -- a rating that did not exist in 1977 -- were it to appear today. Know that it's very much a product of the permissive 1970s; there is casual sex as well as drug use (a brief bit centers on cocaine). Much of the bedroom stuff is innuendo, with nothing explicitly shown, but there are zingers in the dialogue that could lead to some awkward questions from the young ones.

Sexual Content

Frequent discussions of sex, with references to masturbation, sex toys, and group sex. Characters are shown trying to have sex while under blankets and are often shown when it's finished discussing how it was. During a flashback scene, a young girl in a classroom tells the camera that she is now "into leather."


A character who isn't good at driving is shown backing into one car, then hitting two more before a police officer on a motorcycle shows up to take him to jail. In one joke, Woody Allen's character, Alvy, talks about how his grandparents were "raped by Cossacks."


Infrequent profanity: "ass," "a--hole." In a flashback scene to the 1940s, a maid from Harlem is referred to as "colored."

Social Behavior

For all the pessimism and neurotic behavior throughout the film, the importance of cherishing the time you have with someone you have dated -- even if it doesn't work out -- is discussed and shown, as well as finding joy in the silly and sometimes absurd moments of life.


Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Characters frequently drink wine and smoke -- in bars and at parties. Marijuana is discussed as an aphrodisiac. In one scene, characters sit around a table while one character cuts lines of cocaine. During a flashback scene, a young boy tells the camera that he is now a "heroin addict."
