Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that there are a few sex jokes and some profanity, including "tramp" and "slut." The film also revives the antiquated notion that women must tear each other down to win the love of a man. It also proffers a version of love that's unrequited, dishonest, and manipulative.

Sexual Content

Michael kisses Kimmie passionately once and more chastely several times. Julianne and Michael kiss once, even though Michael is engaged. A bridesmaid gets her tongue stuck on an ice sculpture of David.


Not applicable


A few salty phrases and words, including "goddamn," "asshole," "bitch," "hell," "tramp," and "slut."

Social Behavior

Julianne lies and manipulates to break up an engagement, including writing a fake email that hurts Michael. Kimmie speeds, tailgates, and cuts people off in traffic. Julianne steals a truck. A gay man goes in the closet to pretend to be Julianne's fiancé.


One mention of the Embassy Suites.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Julianne smokes regularly. Many characters drink beer.
