Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that the women at the center of Bachelorette spend a very debauched night drinking, swearing, getting high, and hooking up, all while cutting one another down with mean-spirited remarks. This raunchy, hard-R comedy has elements in common with both The Hangover and Bridesmaids -- i.e. sometimes-immature/selfish adults engaged in highly questionable activities. It's quite funny, but it certainly doesn't show people at their best. Expect plenty of drug use (especially cocaine) and drinking, near nonstop swearing ("f--k," "s--t," and many more), some graphic sexual discussions, talk of a character's history of bulimia, and a few sex scenes and encounters with strippers, though no actual nudity.
Plenty of flirting and banter and several graphic discussions about sexual activities. Former sweethearts reunite and end up fooling around, while two other women have casual hook-ups. No nudity, though one scene featuring a quickie in a bathroom is pretty suggestive. A male stripper entertains a crowd of women while a group of guys heads out to a strip club, but none of the entertainers gets fully undressed.
Several heated arguments, sometimes with name-calling.
Near-constant language includes "s--t," "f-k," "bitch," "ass," "d--k," "tw-t," and much more.
Bachelorette makes it clear that friendship is important, even though some friends aren't as supportive as they could or should be. The women in this film say they're all friends, but don't always act as if they have one another's back.
Plenty of signage in the background during exterior scenes in the streets of New York.
Drugs / Tobacco /
Some of the main characters spend a good portion of the film on cocaine, engaging in questionable activities due in part to being quite high. And almost everyone in the movie drinks at some point, whether they're having wine or champagne at a festive pre-wedding dinner or getting completely wasted later. Some people smoke cigarettes. A guy recommends that his friends give women Xanax to make them more willing to go to bed with them, and one woman later intentionally overdoses on the medication.
