Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that How to Be Single is a comedy about friendship and romance with fairly mature themes that are a better fit for older teens and up. Plus, there's tons of sex, swearing, and drinking. Expect a lot of innuendo, as well as many scenes that show men and women hooking up, though nudity is limited to a shot of a man's naked backside. Language is strong and frequent ("f--k," "s--t," and more), and characters drink to the point of blacking out and forgetting that they'd slept with someone the night before.

Sexual Content

Many scenes showing men and women in various states of undress (including a naked backside). Couples have simulated sex, though there's no graphic nudity. Lots of sexual innuendo.

Violence

Verbal arguments. A woman's meltdown about her love life leads to her having a tantrum and discussing mature relationship issues with kids.

Language

Frequent use of everything from "f--k" and "s--t" to "bitch," "a--hole," and "d--k."

Social Behavior

Amid the often-irresponsible behavior is the message that singlehood isn't just a phase that people must endure on the way to happily-ever-after; it's a moment to enjoy and treasure.

Consumerism

Labels/products seen include Stella Artois, Nike, Apple, Wesleyan, Columbia, and craigslist.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Scenes of characters (who are of age) getting black-out drunk, sometimes waking up the next day having forgotten they'd slept with someone the night before.
