Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this Uma Thurman dramedy offers a fairly unvarnished look at parenthood that will appeal much more to moms and dads (who will be able to relate to the subject matter) than to their kids. Teens who do opt in will find some humor in the movie's honesty about the challenges and hassles of having children, but younger kids may be put off by that same frankness. That said, the main characters clearly love their families ... even if they do sometimes yell at each other, swear (including "s--t" and one use of "f--k"), and make other mistakes.
Women disrobe to their underwear at a sample sale, where a pregnant woman also discusses pleasuring herself with one of her children's bath toys (she also mentions a sex toy). A married mother of two flirts with a much younger man. A couple has an honest conversation about sex -- or, rather, the lack thereof -- and marriage.
A woman gets into an argument in the middle of a street with a man who calls her a name. A few other yelling exchanges.
Fairly salty, though not constant. Words include "s--t," "goddamn," "wanker," "piss," "ass," "bloody," "dickhead," "crap," and a use of "f--k." Also, a character mouths the word "c--t."
Though both Eliza and her husband struggle with how to shape their identities in the face of enormous parenting responsibilities, it's clear that they value each other and the life they've made together. There's a pragmatic message in here, too: That you can find yourself somewhere completely unexpected, glamorous plans waylaid, and still be happy. But happiness is a squirmy thing, and it requires work.
