Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that while this might seem like a run-of-the-mill romantic comedy, it's more about Gray's serious realization that she's gay. Bridget Moynahan, who plays the object of Gray's affection, spends most of the film clad in a lace bra and thong panties. The two women share a long, passionate, tequila-fueled kiss, but only Gray remembers it. Despite the film's lighthearted feel, there are plenty of adult themes -- pretending to be straight, coming to terms with homosexuality, making impulsive decisions to marry, etc. The movie is best for older teens who have some perspective on these subjects.
- Sexual Content
- Several on-screen kisses, including a prolonged scene of two drunk women kissing on a bed. Two women take a bath (no direct nudity, though it's obvious that Charlie isn't wearing anything). A woman clearly invites another woman to her place for sex. Charlie spends many of her scenes in a bra and thong. A woman's sexual identity and history are frequently discussed.
- Not applicable
- Occasional language like "screw," "ass," "s--t," and one "f--k."
- Social Behavior
- Protagonist discovers it's better for her to admit that she's gay than live a lonely, unhappy life pretending to be straight. Her friends and family accept her after she comes out. Some jealousy and competitiveness between adult siblings.
- Unless you consider obvious New York City and Las Vegas landmarks a "brand," no overt product placements.
- Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
- People drink socially at home, a dinner party, and a bar. Two characters drink so much that one can't remember anything about a significant night.
- Age appropriate
- Not an issue
- Depends on your kid and your family
- Not appropriate for kids of the age most likely to want to see it
