Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this sweet (if not amazing) romantic comedy starring Reese Witherspoon, Paul Rudd, and Owen Wilson centers on characters in the grip of identity crises -- a topic that may be a little too thorny for young teens to enjoy or really identify with. Nevertheless, it has an appealing message about allowing yourself to be flawed and confused and being kind to yourself so that you can figure out a way out of your dilemmas. There's a bit of swearing (including "s--t" and "f--k"), some characters drink to excess, and there are a few fairly sexy scenes (implied sex, some moans and groans, discussion of playing the field, cleavage, etc.). The movie was initially rated R but received a PG-13 on appeal.

Sexual Content

A couple is seen after they've been intimate; the woman is in lingerie, and the man's chest is bare under the covers; they discuss the fact that they had sex and talk about how good (or not) it was. They sleep together another time, too (some sounds). Other cleavage/shirtless men shots. Some discussion of one character's propensity for sleeping around. A man and a woman discuss how powerful their sexual chemistry is. A man's hand on a woman's breast. Talk of condom use. Passionate kissing.


Not applicable


Relatively infrequent use of words like "f--k," "s--t," "prick," "damn," "oh my God," "hell," and "crap."

Social Behavior

The movie offers some reassuring messages about figuring your life out on your own schedule and the importance of knowing what you want and finding a way to get it. It also has a hopeful message about our ability to fashion the life we want with just "small adjustments."


Some logos are visible, including Adidas, Team USA, and Play-Doh, plus Cheerios and Life cereals.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

A man gets drunk after receiving some bad news. Some social drinking, sometimes to the point of drunkenness.
