Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this caper film isn't a tween-friendly romantic comedy. Although it's both romantic and comedic, it's also a cerebral spy thriller with so many twists that even some adults will be confused. And although the main characters are appealing and sympathetic, the truth is that they're ruthless corporate spies. They're often shown right before and after making love (bare-shouldered, and, in Clive Owen's case, bare-chested). They also discuss their sex life with innuendo and jokes about "legs in the air" and such. There isn't much violence aside from a humorous fight between two CEOs, but there's occasional strong language ("bulls--t," "goddamn," "d--k"), and drinking (all by adults).

Sexual Content

A lot of sexual chemistry and conversation between Ray and Claire. They make love off camera, but the audience does see them kissing in bed on several occasions, and usually both of them have bare shoulders, legs, and backs. Ray walks out of the bathroom in just a towel. Steamy conversation includes asides about "rug burn," "turned on," and "legs in the air."


Menacing but humorous confrontation between two titans of industry. Slightly disturbing scene of a character who has obviously been sedated and another who's temporarily gagged and blinded. Security team discusses how "to deal" with possible spies in the company.


Words like "bulls--t," "s--t," "cojones," and "a--hole" are used occasionally. Other potentially offensive expressions include "goddamn," "for Christ's sake," "oh my God," and "swinging d--k."

Social Behavior

Corporate epsionage is portrayed as a dirty business, with rival companies routinely undermining each other by using spies to try to steal new ideas.


Most of the products and companies featured are fictional, so there's no overt consumerism in the film.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Adults are shown enjoying champagne, wine, and cocktails at dinner, a celebration, a bar, and a hotel.
