Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this entertaining 1990s comedy includes a fair bit of sexual content. There may not be any nudity (aside from some bare legs), but there is frank sex talk, kissing, groping, and post-sex snuggling between a married couple. The movie focuses on adult problems with marriage and time management -- not particularly teen-friendly topics. Duplicity is a running theme, and despite things being resolved positively in the end, the main character never comes completely clean about his deception. Expect a bit of language ("s--t" and "damn").
- Sexual Content
- Plenty of talk about sex, though nothing explicit. In one scene, the main character talks to his clones about having sex with his wife Laura and lays down "clone nooky rules." Later, clone #3 has sex with Laura, and then clone #2 does as well -- kissing, groping, and bare legs shown, plus some minor foreplay and post-coital scenes.
- Humorous threats and slapstick. A character is threatened with a drywall hammer. Another character is picked up out of a Port-a-Potty by a bulldozer. A wife slaps her husband and other characters have anger issues.
- Several curse words, including "s--t", "damn," and its cousin, "Goddamn." Plus a few uses of "doodyhead." A couple obscene gestures.
- Social Behavior
- Lying to one's spouse is portrayed humorously, and though there are some lessons learned throughout the film, the lying character never fully comes clean. Stereotypes of male and female behavior figure into the humor heavily.
