Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this subtly paced comedy is aimed at adults, although most older teens can handle the content, particularly when it comes to lessons about principles, fame and the creation of art. There's some unbleeped swearing that's often uttered in streams, with audible words like "f--k," "s--t," "bastard," and even "c--t." There's also some sexual innuendo and social drinking, in addition to an ongoing joke about a tween smoking cigarettes.

Sexual Content

Some implied sex, intramarital affairs, and references to "wanking" and extra-large male genetalia, with a woman occasionally shown in a bra, etc.


Not applicable


Unbleeped swearing of varying frequency, with audible words like "s--t," "f--k," "c--t," "c--ksucker," "bastard," "ass," and "twat."

Social Behavior

The overall feel is that of a black comedy; morals and principles are typically shucked in favor of schmoozing and making money, although those choices don't tend to pay off for everyone concerned. The entertainment world is alternately fabulous and ridiculous, and fame is portayed as fleeting.


Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Infrequent social drinking, plus references to one character's alcoholism. One of the tween actors smokes, but it's meant to be funny.
