Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Apartment Troubles is an independent comedy about two artistic best friends/roommates who don't have enough income to bother paying their electricity bill -- or rent. There's some strong language ("f--k," "s--t," "a--hole," "bitch"), drinking by adults (a couple to the point of drunkenness), prescription drug use, and some mild fighting. An older married woman keeps hitting on/trying to kiss a younger woman who isn't interested in her. The young women -- who are affectionate and share a bed, though their relationship isn't sexual -- don't seem to have a job or worry about how to live up to their responsibilities.
- Sexual Content
- Kimberley keeps hitting on and trying to make passes at/kiss Olivia. Although Olivia and Nicole are affectionate and sleep in the same bed, their relationship isn't sexual (although one of them is in love with the other).
- Nicole and Olivia get into a pushing and shouting match with two other women. A cat dies.
- Occasional use of "f--k," "s--t," "a--hole," and more.
- Social Behavior
- Nicole and Olivia's adventures could be perceived as a cautionary tale about not letting yourself be in a situation where you're about to be evicted, when you can easily get help from caring family members.
