Common Sense Note

Most of the movie's content is quite mild, but the focus on drinking -- including scenes that show how drinking too much can destroy lives and lead to anger and some violence (hitting, etc.) -- makes the movie best suited for teens and up. Also, one character talks about being a survivor of sexual abuse.
