Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that director Judd Apatow's latest comedy is loaded with the strong language (from "f--k" to "p---y" and then some), adult behavior, and sexualized material (including lots of penis jokes and one scene with naked breasts) you'd expect from the man behind Knocked Up and The 40-Year-Old Virgin. But it's also an honest, sincere drama about the challenges of modern life. Look past the crude stuff, and you'll see that this is actually a serious, heartfelt film masquerading as a light comedy.

Sexual Content

Sex scenes involving nude breasts and blunt talk; love scenes; extensive discussion of sex, infidelity, and more. Lots of penis jokes.

Violence

One scene of inept (though enthusiastic) scuffling between two people who clearly don't know how to fight. It's played for comedic effect, but some of the slapping gets pretty serious.

Language

Constant strong language, including (but not limited to ) "f--k," "motherf--ker," "s--t," "balls," "prick," "dick," "c--k," "bitch," "titty," "p---y," "goddamn," "oh my God," and much more. One use of the "N" word, as a descriptive term rather than a racial epithet.

Social Behavior

Despite its crude humor, the movie's messages are actually moving and worthwhile -- about the importance of ethics, the nature and challenge of success, and the way that we often turn pain into laughter even though it doesn't complelety eliminate the underlying problem. This isn't a movie about people making jokes -- it's about people making art.

Consumerism

Multiple mentions of commerical brands, services, products, and entertainers as part of conversations or stand-up comedy acts. Specific brands mentioned include Apple, MySpace, Facebook, Yahoo, Craigslist, PayPal, Bud Light, Target, Best Buy, JDate.com, Diet Coke, Wii Fit, Panda Express, and more.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Characters drink beer, wine, and hard liquor and, in one scene, smoke marijuana. Stand-up performances take place in bars.
