Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this upbeat but shallow romcom hews closely to traditional Hollywood formulas. While there isn't much in the way of age-inappropriate content for older tweens and teens -- who may find the banter between stars Amy Adams and Matthew Goode somewhat amusing -- the movie does tap into tired stereotypes about men, women, and romance. Adams' character is supposed to be seen as self-sufficient, but she ultimately comes off as yet another Hollywood female character who's just waiting for "the right one" to make everything right in her life. On the up side, language, sex, and violence are quite tame.
Three couples of various ages share stories about love and relationships; each tale ends with a kiss. A woman's naked silhouette is shown behind a shower curtain.
A guy gets into a fight with three bruisers who steal a woman's luggage.
"Hell," "damn," "idiot" and "jackass" are about as rough as it gets. A couple of uses of "for God's sake."
Although the movie makes the worthwhile point that women don't have to sit and wait for their boyfriends to propose -- that they're in command of their own destinies -- it still pretty much hews to Hollywood's standard boy-meets-girl, boy-gets-girl, boy-loses-girl, couple-is-reunited fairy-tale structure.
Anna is label conscious, and much is made of her Louis Vuitton luggage.

A woman gets tipsy at a wedding reception; also social drinking at a pub, where one regular keels over from inebriation (it's played for humor -- but, parents, remind kids that getting drunk isn't funny!).
