Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that I Give It a Year examines the realities of marriage, as newlyweds Nat (Rose Byrne) and Josh (Rafe Spall) discover all the little things about each other that drive them nuts. They bicker and then reconcile, but they're soon questioning whether they were too hasty in their rush to the altar -- a plotline that may not have that much built-in appeal for teens. Several scenes have flirting and sexual innuendo, and there's a series of explicit homemade sex photos (including one that's a close-up of a penis). Expect social drinking by adults, sometimes to excess, and some swearing ("f--k," "s--t," etc.).
Plenty of sexual innuendo, and one sequence of quite explicit photographs of a couple having sex, including a close-up of a penis. Women are sometimes seen in their underwear. A woman finds herself involved in a threesome, though the scene is more comical than erotic, and all the participants remain clothed. Some flirtatious banter between a married woman and a single man who's trying to seduce her.
Some bitter arguments.
Occasional profanity includes "f--k," "s--t," "crap" and a very unusual game of charades featuring a long stream of increasingly crass synonyms for "vagina."
Marriage is hard work, and couples need to be committed both to each other and to the reality that staying together is a choice. The film makes it clear that sticking together long after the honeymoon is over can be tough -- though it doesn't do much to show that there are also benefits from long-term relationships.
One character has a large Mac computer on her desk, visible in multiple scenes. Some people have iPhones.
Drugs / Tobacco /
Social drinking at parties, weddings, and meals. Adult characters sometimes get drunk and act silly.
