Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Maggie's Plan is a quirky, talky comedy about relationships and self-discovery. The material is is too mature for younger teens -- one sex scene includes partial nudity (bare back, breasts), and there's a lot of talk about insemination (including scenes showing a man's "product" in a cup and a woman trying to inseminate herself with a syringe). There's also more talk of sex, social drinking (sometimes too much -- which in one case leads to an extramarital hook-up), as well as frequent strong language ("f--k," "s--t," and more). In any case, the movie's focus on marriage/relationships and parenthood may not be all that appealing to teens, anyway.

Sexual Content

During a sex scene, a woman's bare back and breast are seen. In another scene, a couple wrestles playfully on a bed, then twitching feet are seen and moans are heard. Also talk of sex, sperm, and insemination (a donor is asked to "produce" on demand -- his results are shown in a cup; a woman uses a syringe to try to inseminate herself).

Violence

A few loud arguments.

Language

Frequent use of strong language, including "f--k," "s--t," "hell," "bitch," "ass," "shut up," "screw you," "balls," "t-ts," "Jesus" (as an exclamation).

Social Behavior

There's a certain lack of commitment among the characters, but ultimately the idea is that even the messiest relationships can find resolution, and while you may not be able to undo your mistakes, you can remedy them. Explores the idea of falling in and out of love with your spouse during a marriage.

Consumerism

Characters use iPhones. Scribner (the publisher) and Airbnb are mentioned.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Social drinking (hot whiskey, wine, beer, etc.). A couple hooks up after having too much to drink; another woman drinks too much during a date night.
