Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Authors Anonymous is a mockumentary-style comedy about a writers' group of misfits who are trying to get their books published. Starring The Big Bang Theory's Kaley Cuoco, it's not overly risque, but there are allusions to sex, erotic romance novels, some standard strong language ("s--t," "bitch"), and aggressive behavior by a couple of angry, jealous characters. There are also plenty of references to famous authors and their work, but overall this is a straight-up parody of writers' desperation to get published.
A couple of kisses and implied sex scenes. One is when a woman, wearing only a robe, comes out of a room ready to meet her lover. In another, a bare-chested man calls his girlfriend "babe," and she appears wearing nothing but a man's button-down shirt. Mentions of/references to erotic romance novels.
A couple of outbursts from upset people who throw things or otherwise get mad.
Occasional strong language and insults include "s--t," "pu--ies," "a--hole," "goddamn," "Jesus H. Christ," "jackass," "washed-up," "idiot," etc.
It's hard to see any clearly positive messages here, since, for the majority of the movie, the only successful novelist is a young woman who prizes herself on literary ignorance.
Featured brands include Audi, Apple, Coke, Sprite, Heineken, and Lafont eyeglasses.
