Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this imaginative romantic comedy, which represents a return to form for master filmmaker Woody Allen, includes some thematic material -- infidelity, professional boredom -- that may be too mature for younger teens. But given the movie's charming journey back to historic Paris and its lack of anything specifically risque, older teens may get a kick out of it. (Think of it as a witty history lesson.) There's smoking and drinking -- champagne, wine, and bourbon, especially in scenes depicting the roaring '20s.
Couples flirt and kiss. An engaged man declares his interest in a woman who's not his fiancee. A woman admits to infidelity. Discussion about how one character has slept with many men.
No violent scenes; some talk of bull fighting and war.
Infrequent use of words like "hell" "damn," and "oh my God."
True joy comes in finding something you love and actually doing it and through questioning it in the process. Also: Relationships that don't affirm your essence have an uphill climb. In short, pick someone who can share your bliss.
Some high-end labels, like Dior and Chopard, are seen on shopping bags and such, and they imply one family's wealth.

Some of the characters date back to the gin- and bourbon-soaked 1920s, and they're shown swilling their nights away. One character is so inebriated that she threatens to drown herself. Several characters smoke.
