Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this movie includes a number of poop jokes. Lots of silly slapstick: The heroine falls into art (a pile of mud), falls off a ladder, and the hero is hit by a cab. Several characters are ruthlessly selfish and snobbish, and they lie and cheat one another. Women wear close-fitting, sometimes ridiculous outfits. A gypsy fortune teller is troublingly stereotypical. Characters drink, sometimes to drunkenness.

Sexual Content

Kisses between primary couple; one character is revealed to be a professional escort (and Ashley is arrested for pimping); some soundtrack music includes sexual allusions (including "Goodies," by Ciara).


Assorted pratfalls and spills by "unlucky" characters; when Jake falls on her and his pants accidentally fall down, a woman kicks Jake in his crotch.


A couple of uses of "s--t out of luck" (abbreviated to "SOL"); "s--t," "kick-ass song," "damn it," "bullocks," plus obnoxious language ("sucking up," "crap, "that sucks"); joke horoscope ("Your mood is in Uranus").

Social Behavior

Frequent gross-out humor, especially poop jokes. Characters lie and cheat.


Entire film advertises real-life band McFly (here playing themselves); characters drop brand names, like Dolce (& Gabbana), Bergdorf's.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Drinks at party, reference to vodka, visible bar in upscale apartment provided to lucky boy.
