Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that the considerable swearing, drinking, and political diatribes make this a more mature movie. Plus John has sexual fantasies about a news anchor and masturbates, and it's implied that John sleeps with Gloria. There's also some smoking, including pot. The subject matter is likely to be objectionable to families who aren't pretty left-leaning politically.
