Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this movie from the director of The Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood is aimed more at mothers than kids. But some teens, especially girls who are fans of Queen Latifah or the celebrity circus that surrounds Katie Holmes, might be interested in checking this heist chick flick out. If you're considering a mother-daughter matinee, know that the main characters become unrepentant robbers motivated at first by necessity and later by greed. There are several conversations about sex (or the lack thereof) and a few scenes of passionate kisses, as well as some language (including "bitch") and social drinking.
A married couple kisses and discusses "doing it" in the car. The ladies tease Nina about not having sex for seven years, making jokes about how "sore" she'll be in the morning, how sex is like "riding a bicycle upside-down," etc. Nina and Barry make out in a closet. The three women strip to their undies to stuff their bras and panties with cash.
Cops point their guns before arresting people.
Language includes "bitch," "ass," "damn," "hell," etc.
