Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this mature indie dramedy revolves around a tentative, troubled romance between adults and probably won't have too much appeal for kids, or even many teens. It's fairly explicit about sex, with one main character using Internet pornography and even prostitutes to satisfy his needs, even while he's seeing someone. He's not painted as an out-and-out "bad guy" for his behavior, either. There's also a scene with masturbation, as well as some strong language (including "f--k" and "s--t"), drinking, and references to drug use.

Sexual Content

A character peruses online pornography; a character masturbates (images aren't graphic); characters kiss and have sex; a character calls a sex-chat line and later avails himself of the services of a prostitute.


A character is hit by a car; another character scuffles with an angry bystander. The main characters wrestle with each other.


Some crude language, including "f--k," "ass," "s--t," "bitch," "retard," a--hole," "p---y," "nipples," "whore," "sluts," and references to "down there."

Social Behavior

The film suggests that one character's use of pornography and prostitutes has damaged the person's capacity to form real attachments. A supporting character passes away. City property is misused, with ramifications.


Some brands mentioned and shown on screen, including M&Ms, Subway, Carl's Junior, Corvette.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Alcohol -- champagne, wine, and cocktails -- is consumed; a character refers to years being lost to drug use.
