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.
