Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this movie features very mature material, including teen-adult sex and full-frontal nudity. There's drinking and swearing, and the characters are often abusive to one another. This film also deals with mature subjects, from liposuction to a loveless marriage.

Sexual Content

Discussions of threesomes, heavy petting, extended foreplay, extended full-female nudity, teenage sex with a middle-aged woman.


Off-screen dog attack.


A homophobic slur, sexually vulgar language, swearing from and at children, and a racist/anti-Semitic joke.

Social Behavior

The film does not include a single character who is not in some way disturbed. The main women (and child) all appear to be struggling with emotional issues. That struggle manifests itself in alternating hateful/selfish and caring behavior. The film also includes a slew of bad relationships.
