Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that the comedy in this film is based on an exaggerated clash of cultures -- the relative innocence and wholesomeness of the 1960s vs. the disillusionment and jaded materialism of the 1990s. Casual swearing is prominent in the 1990s scenes, where there are also porn shops, sexy TV commercials, a prostitute in drag, and scenes in which characters appear to be high on marijuana or drugs. In the 1960s, almost everyone smokes. And there's lots of drinking in both decades.
Scenes set in the 1990s show some sexy TV commercials, girls in bikinis, and the exterior of an adult video porn shop. A prostitute in drag offers services to the innocent Adam -- he's oblivious. There are some gentle, romantic kisses between new lovers. Eve asks Adam, "Have you ever had sex before?"
A plane crashes into a house: no one is injured; the pilot escapes. A leading character suffers from what seems to be a heart attack, but he soon recovers. Cartoon action includes a brief fist fight, a fall, a car crash, and a chase.
Lots of swearing and off-color language during the scenes set in the 1990s: "hell," "s--t," "goddamn," "f--k," "d--khead," "get laid," "bitch," "crap," "hooker," "pimp," "butthead," "slut," "screw you," "ass," "pee in pants," "son-of-a-bitch," "slut," "penis."
The film consistently celebrates kindness, respect for others, education, and honesty. Even the most cynical characters come to find value in innocence and an open heart.

Drugs / Tobacco /
In the 1960s, most characters smoke cigarettes; one has a pipe. Social drinking; one character becomes a secret tippler; she's never portrayed as drunk and the scenes are played as comedy. In the 1990s, characters frequently consume alcohol -- there are scenes in a psychedelic bar, a saloon, and a restaurant. There's a brief discussion of Alcoholics Anonymous and some characters appear to be drugged or high during some humorous pseudo-religious scenes.
