Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Cake is a grim drama that deals with incredibly tragic issues, including chronic pain, a fatal car accident, and the suicide of a young mother. As such, it's likely too heavy for young teens and tweens. Expect some swearing, including "s--t" and "f--k," and many scenes showing star Jennifer Aniston's character popping pills that she has procured illegally. It's implied that characters are having sex (they're under the covers; there's no nudity)

Sexual Content

Couples are shown presumably having sex under the covers, but there's no nudity.

Violence

Frank talk about suicide, with some scenes depicting a person standing on a freeway ledge, about to jump, and lying on railroad tracks. One character kills herself; others are affected by the aftermath. A woman is disturbed by the sight of a man and rushes at him, pushing and kicking. A fatal car accident is discussed. A character suffers from chronic pain.

Language

Some swearing, including "s--t," "hell," and "f--k."

Social Behavior

No matter how despondent and isolated someone might feel, there's always a way back to the light.

Consumerism

An affluent woman clearly comes across as such because of the things she owns, including a Jeep and other high-end goods.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

A woman is addicted to prescription pills, which she obtains illegally. She's shown popping them constantly. Specific pill brands mentioned include Percocet and Oxycontin.
