Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that older teens may be intrigued by this indie drama because of star John Krasinski and writers Dave Eggers and Vendela Vida. Its unvarnished look at different types of parenting, though exaggerated for cinematic effect, hits home and could very well prompt some internal analysis. Expect a range of strong language (including "s--t" and "f--k"), some sexuality (including a glimpse of a bare breast), and social drinking.
An earthy couple gives off a very sexual vibe; they drop hints about wanting sex in front of others. The wife inadvertently reveals her breast as she adjusts after breastfeeding. Another woman does a sensual dance on a stripper stage; it plays with melancholy, though, as her husband shares a tragedy with his friend while his wife dances.
Frequent use of words like "s--t," "f--k," "damn," "c--t," "tits," "ass," "goddamn," and "oh my God." Overall, though the language is strong, it's less gratuitous than in some movies.
The lead characters are very mindful of the enormity of their responsibilities. But a mother ridicules her kids and talks openly about wanting to leave their father, and another couple is openly judgmental of other people's parenting decisions. Grandparents-to-be don't seem to care to stay for the birth of their first grandchild. A lead character flings a stream of insults at old friends he feels are acting self-righteous. And a tipsy mom is rude to her children and much too generous with back-handed compliments.
