Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this romantic comedy, which is far from the pre-packaged, predictable fare typical of the genre, has lots of heart, but does deal with mature themes like betrayal and deception, which are probably too weighty for kids. There's little swearing and nudity, though couples are shown in passionate embrace. There are also some arguments that may be a little bombastic for very young viewers (though hilarious for everyone else).
A woman sleeps with her fiance's brother. We see them kissing and hear them moaning; later she's seen ostensibly naked under a sheet, her silhouette outlined by moonlight. An elderly man is having an affair, and his wife suspects it. Another retiree gets frisky with his wife (no nudity). A womanizer kisses a married woman on the cheek after walking her home.
A woman slaps a man who, earlier, threatens to kill himself half-seriously.
Some, used sparingly: "s--t;" Italian word for prostitute.
Love can strike anytime, and especially when you're not looking, and it's good to give into it -- for the right person. The film, in fact, is infused with romance (a magical moon, a sense that lovers can't resist the pull of true love). Your past doesn't define have to define you. There's also a clear message about the importance of family and tradition, though one does not have to abide by both slavishly.
Some signage for the Metropolitan Opera's production of "La Boheme," as well as mom-and-pop stores (florists, hair salons, bakeries). Also, the odd Budweiser outside a bar.
Drugs / Tobacco /
Plenty of social drinking at restaurants, parties, the theatre; a family breaks open the champagne to celebrate a piece of good news; a woman drinks a glass of wine before a date.
