Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Love, Rosie is all about long-distance, long-term, unrequited love. Several scenes feature teens talking about losing their virginity/having sex, and there's one quick scene in which two of them actually do the deed (a girl is shown in her bra, and an unintended pregnancy results). There's also a fair bit of drinking (including a teen drinking until she passes out) and some smoking, as well as plenty of swearing, notably "f--k" and "s--t." But this tale of recognizing love -- and acting on that realization -- will resonate with older teens and up.
- Sexual Content
- Some discussions about sex, especially how and when high school students lose their virginity. A brief sex scene shows a woman in her bra. Much of the film deals with the unplanned pregnancy that results (the condom came off) and how raising a child disrupts your life. A couple is caught in bed together (nothing graphic shown).
- A few arguments; one scene shows a woman punching her husband when she finds him with another woman.
- A fair amount of swearing, especially "f--k" and "s--t," as well as British slang like "wanker" and "bollocks."
- Social Behavior
- Ending up with the wrong person can make you miserable, but love is out there if you're able to recognize it when it appears.
- Not applicable
- Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
- Several scenes include people drinking -- at bars and nightclubs, at meals, and while hanging out with friends. In an early scene, a teen girl drinks to the point of passing out. Some characters smoke cigarettes.
