Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this movie has strong sexuality for a PG-13, including descriptions of some sexually aggressive women, a strip basketball game, and a scene of Monica and Quincy having sex that has no nudity but is fairly explicit -- but refreshingly it includes the obvious use of a condom. A character gets drunk when she finds out that her husband has been unfaithful.
Fairly explicit sexual references and situations. Quincy's father is unfaithful; women fall all over Quincy and explicitly ask to sleep with him; as high schoolers, Quincy and Monica have sex -- a condom is prominent in that scene; a game of strip basketball in a dorm room shows underwear only.
Some scuffles, parent slaps adult child, plus Monica is often fouled on the basketball court for displays of temper.
Some strong language.
Monica faces sexist behavior and attitudes from those closest to her as she proves basketball is just as important to her as it is to male players. Quincy's dad is an abandoning, philandering father figure and Quincy works hard throughout the film not to turn out like him.
