Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this comedy -- which was produced by Knocked Up director Judd Apatow -- is actually a lot less crass than the other hit movies he's worked on ... despite the fact that it features full-frontal male nudity right off the bat. In fact, it's downright warm-and-fuzzy in parts, revealing the heartache of breakups and the complexities of relationships. All of that said, it can't avoid its Apatowian roots altogether; there's plenty of salty language (from "f--k" to "b-tch"), sexual content, social drinking, and references to drug use.
Lots of jokes about sex; the first major scene involves repeated male full-frontal nudity, as well as naked backside shots. The main character is later shown having tons of one-night stands. Simulated sex acts in various positions. Couples cuddle post-coitus under sheets. A man teaches another man -- who is inexperienced -- his sexual tricks by humping large chess pieces. A honeymooner laments his new bride's excessive sexual demands and complains about not being able to find part of a woman's anatomy. Pictures of bare breasts.
Some loud arguments between couples; a bar owner beats Peter up for trying to steal a picture; two guys shove each other at the beach.
Lots of cursing, including many uses of "s--t," "dick," "bitch," and "f--k."
Couples cheat on each other and cover up their misdeeds with lies. Still, friends back each other up and exes find a way to talk maturely about their failed relationships and what they appreciate about each other.
Some hotel signage; Sean John, Sesame Street, Elmo, and Fraggle Rock are all name-checked. Logo for O'Neill surfing gear is prominently displayed.
Drugs / Tobacco /
Lots of getting sloshed, especially post-breakup. Some references to buying, selling, and smoking weed.
