Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this holiday drama starring Robert De Niro deals with some heavy themes that aren't age-appropriate for young children. Of the main character's four grown-up children, one (mostly unseen) is a jailed substance abuser, and the others are grappling with issues including sexuality, divorce, and single parenthood. There's quite a bit of swearing for a PG-13 movie, especially during a comical scene between a grandfather and grandson ("f--k," "s--t"). There's also a lot of lying, and one character dies (off screen), while another ends up in the hospital after being mugged. Still, in the end, the movie aims to send a positive message about acceptance and honesty between parents and their adult children.

Sexual Content

Amy flirts with a man who's not her husband. Rosie and Amy are shown with their significant others. A woman who is obviously a prostitute jokingly asks Frank if he wants to see "her leg." Rosie (shown as a young girl) says that she likes "girls."


Frank is mugged by a young homeless man. The man stomps on Frank's prescription medicine, and Frank ends up in the hospital. A character, unseen but spoken about often, dies off camera.


Fairly strong language, including "f--k," "s--t," exclamations of "oh my God," "Christ!" and "Jesus!," "damn," "hell," etc.

Social Behavior

The grown-up children all lie to their father about incredibly important aspects of their lives, including pregnancy, babies, divorce, and sexuality. But ultimately they make amends and start to relate to him better.


Brands featured include Audi, BMW, and McDonald's.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Robert smokes a cigarette, then says he's quitting, then smokes another cigarette. One character who's mostly unseen (but talked about often) is an imprisoned substance abuser.
