Along the way, they learn a thing or two about themselves, one another and life. Powerful performances drive home the themes of friendship and female solidarity, while the awe-inspiring landscapes of the American Southwest convey a true sense of carpe diem.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that although this road trip dramedy about three middle-aged women looking back on their lives doesn't have a lot of age-inappropriate content, it probably won't be of much interest to kids. The main characters discuss sex and desire via innuendoes, and they see a woman in a casino who is there "on business" (she's a prostitute). A brief fight features some punching, kicking, and rolling in the dust (one woman needs stitches after). Mild language includes "hell" and "damn," and there's a little social drinking.

Sexual Content

A couple of women (including a prostitute) wear cleavage-revealing tops. Sexual innuendo ("feel a man's big rig"). Margene flirts with Emmett, then returns to hotel claiming that she only took off her pantyhose to dance. Sweet kiss between Emmett and Margene.


Fight between the three central women and a man and woman who try to steal Carol's purse; Carol ends up with bloody forehead and stitches.


Words include "hell" and "damn."

Social Behavior

Francine is grumpy and possessive about her father's ashes; Arvilla tries to deceive her concerning the ashes.


Brands include iPod.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Conversation about drinking ("the occasional medicinal scotch"); wine at dinner; strict Mormon Carol drinks a vodka after she wins money at a slot machine.
