Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that the titular partner in Darling Companion is a beloved dog who helps a woman (played by Diane Keaton) fill an emotional vacuum. When the dog gets lost in the woods, her family comes together to track it down, leading to a chance for reconnection. There's some swearing ("s--t," "ass," etc.), social drinking, sex talk, and a few suggestive scenes, but this is primarily a simple drama about rekindling love. While the movie's theme and older characters may not hold much appeal for younger viewers, the film's messages offer an important lesson for anyone who's ever been in a long-term relationship.

Sexual Content

Some suggestive discussions and a few scenes that cut away as couples head off for private moments.

Violence

Some heated arguments. Two men get into a wrestling match.

Language

Some swearing during tense moments, including "s--t," "ass,' "d--k," "bitch," and "crap."

Social Behavior

The movie's main message is that family is more important than work, even though some people take far too long to realize that. In the end, it's always family that will stick by you during a crisis.

Consumerism

A wealthy doctor drives a Mercedes.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Some adult characters drink wine with meals.
