Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that though this comedy is rated PG, features kids, and has little to no cursing, it's fairly racy. A divorcee targets a married man and flashes her cleavage, a boss hits on his married employee, and Jack and his housewife friends see a male stripper show. There's plenty of smoking and drinking, though in a social context appropriate for the time period.
- Sexual Content
- No sex or nudity, but plenty of flirtation and risqué overtures. A divorcee wears low-cut blouses and hits on Jack, and later appears in lingerie during a dream sequence. Caroline's boss aggressively hits on her wearing a robe. A brief scene of Chippendales dancing at a strip club in leather underwear; a woman rushes the stage.
- Men lunge at their boss when they are laid off. Jack throws the phone in a fit of anger.
- Some mild swearing, including "crap" and "jerk."
- Social Behavior
- There are a few tricky situations when spouses flirt with others. But for the most part, the main characters' marriage is solid and they want to do right by their kids.
- Plenty of product placement, especially cleaning products such as Tide, Clorox, and Borax. Jack is partial to Miller Lite beer. Caroline works on an ad campaign for a fake tuna fish company, Schooner Tuna. Frequent viewings of The Young and the Restless.
- Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
- No drugs, but plenty of smoking in the boardroom. As he gets more bored with the situation, Jack begins to drink beer during the day, often while watching soap operas.
