Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Endless Love is the second adaptation of Scott Spencer's 1979 novel -- the first is the campy 1981 melodrama starring Brooke Shields -- an intense drama about a smart, wealthy girl who desperately falls for a mechanic's son much to her father's horror. The remake is less trashy than the original, but there's definitely still sexual content, although it's not graphic. Language includes "s--t," "a--hole," and a single "f--k," and violence is limited to a couple of punches and a car accident that leads to a brief hospital stay. Ultimately this is not quite the story of obsession it was in the original, but a tamer and sentimental exploration of first love that lasts.

Sexual Content

Older teens (17 and 18) have sex soon after first meeting. There's no mention of using protection, but the guy is respectful, says he's willing to wait, and allows his girlfriend to take the lead (no full nudity, but they are shown topless from the side and on top of each other). David and Jade kiss passionately many times (some times barely dressed or in only a bikini/swim trunks) and it's implied they have sex other times, like when they're shown sharing a bubble bath, but it's not graphic.

Violence

Jade is in a car accident that leaves her injured and temporarily hospitalized. David punches a disrespectful restaurant patron and later -- after much verbal abuse and provocation -- punches Jade's hateful father.

Language

The most frequently said curse word is "s--t," but there are also a couple of uses of "a--hole," one "f--king," and a few exclamations with the word "God."

Social Behavior

The overwhelming message is that true love isn't concerned with class, education, or social status. The movie cautions parents from being overly restrictive when it comes to dictating every area of their teens' lives and encourages parents to give their teens some freedom in whom they choose to love and what they choose to study. On the down side, the story also makes it clear that it's quite possible to find a "forever love" at the age of 17, and that sometimes you have to fight for that love to persevere.

Consumerism

Mostly cars: Maserati, BMW, Ford. Mentioned brands include iPhone, Hulu, Uber.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

High-school graduates (who are still under 21) are shown drinking at a couple of parties and get-togethers and discuss getting high at a party.
