Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that I'll See You in My Dreams is a dramedy about a widow in her 70s (Blythe Danner) who learns to live life again. It will probably appeal most to older viewers, but teens who watch may gain an appreciation for the older people in their lives. Expect some salty language -- including one use of "f--k" -- and some comical sexual innuendo, as well as some kissing and a sex scene that shows a couple afterward, under the covers (no graphic nudity). The main character drinks pretty heavily, mostly wine, but also beer and a cocktail. She sometimes regrets decisions made while drunk. Characters smoke pot in one scene and get the munchies. A dog dies (on screen) in the vet's office, and a major character dies (off screen). There's also a story of a plane crash and a husband's death.
A couple has sex; viewers see them afterward, under the covers (no graphic nudity). Some kissing and strong/humor-based innuendo. Scene of "speed dating."
A beloved dog is taken to the vet's office and put to sleep. A woman is scared by a big, black rat. Story of a man dying in a plane crash. A character dies (off screen).

Women over 40 (and over 70!) are people, too, with feelings, fears, and desires. Shows that younger people can be friends with older people and that older people are plenty capable of romance. Could inspire teens to become more curious about the older people in their lives. Grief and loss are also themes.
