Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this drama stars Tom Hanks as a recently downsized man adrift in life who decides to go to college. Julia Roberts co-stars as a bitter teacher stuck in a bad marriage who relishes her end-of-day drinks just a bit more than she should. The film's messages about finding unexpected joy in life are positive and uplifting, but unfortunately they're delivered in a superficial way. Expect some flirting and kissing, brief but strong swearing (including "f--k"), and ogling of online photos of bikini-clad women. One character drives drunk -- but there are consequences for that decision.

Sexual Content

Some flirting and one exuberant, drunken kiss. One character is briefly seen perusing women in bikinis on the Internet; he later discusses his habits and preferences.

Violence

A couple gets into a heated argument. A man delivers steely glares to another man whom he thinks may have a crush on his girlfriend, despite evidence to the contrary.

Language

One brief, intense argument between a married couple features "screw you" and the F-word. Also infrequent use of words like "c--k," "ass," "damn," "hell," and "oh my God."

Social Behavior

The movie's message is that while life can deliver plenty of bumps and bruises, there's happiness awaiting those who are willing to open their heart to the unexpected and embrace change. Getting laid off, breaking up, losing a home -- all of these can seem very negative, on the surface, but they can also lead to positive new experiences.

Consumerism

Motor scooters play an important role in Larry's social evolution. He rides a battered Yamaha, while some of his new friends ride classic Vespas.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

One character drinks regularly to wash away the frustrations from her job, though she later begins to temper her habits. Another gets behind the wheel after drinking and is later arrested for driving while intoxicated.
