Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that I Melt with You is a very depressing drama about four fortysomething friends who get together for a party and try to drown their meaningless misery with tons of alcohol and drugs. It gets even more hopeless as the story goes on. Constant, destructive drinking, smoking, and drug use are the biggest issues; one character is a shady doctor (a quasi-drug dealer) who's probably an addict. Strong language is nearly constant, with many uses of "f--k." There's also some brief nudity (male and female) and implied sex, as well as strong sexual innuendo. There are three suicides and one murder, with dead bodies, as well as a violent, bloody bar fight. Overall, this combination makes the movie a very iffy choice for even the most mature teens.

Sexual Content

Constant, vulgar sexual innuendo. Some younger twentysomething women come to party with the fortysomething men. There's flirting and kissing. An implied three-way sex act is started between two men and a woman, though perhaps not completed. A woman (former porn star Sasha Grey) strips to her panties, and her breasts are shown. Four guys go skinny-dipping in the ocean, and their behinds are on view.

Violence

Startling, life-altering suicides -- one by hanging in the shower, another by drug overdose, and another by jumping from a cliff. Another man is suffocated with a pillow. There's also a bar fight with punching and pummeling. Some blood is shown. A man has a heart attack and is rescued by CPR.

Language

Almost-constant foul language, with many uses of "f--k" in all its forms and very strong sexual innuendo. Other words include "ass," "piss," and "bitch."

Social Behavior

The movie's relentlessly grim message is that when you hit your 40s, you'll have lost sight of everything that once made life great and promising -- and when that happens, there's no more hope. If nothing else, though, the movie makes partying, drinking, and taking drugs look depressing.

Consumerism

Not applicable.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Most of the movie consists of a week-long party among four fortysomething men. They constantly drink all kinds of hard liquor and beer, smoke cigarettes, and do all kinds of drugs, including cocaine and various mixed pills. Sometimes the pills are broken up and snorted or injected. One main character is a doctor who illegally prescribes drugs to wealthy housewives and is himself probably an addict.
