Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this romantic comedy centers on acquaintances who hatch a scheme to get married just for the gifts and cash. Despite the movie's lighthearted spin on the scenario -- and the inevitable happy ending -- the premise sends some iffy messages about love, marriage, and the real-life repercussions of serious issues like gambling. Factor in some intermittent sexual allusions (phrases like "bang hot chicks," for example) and light-duty violence (thugs punch Vince and threaten him with a gun), and it's clear that this movie isn't meant for young kids.

Sexual Content

One brief make-out session (kissing and some fondling), and a few other instances of kissing. Adults sometimes mention sex in slang terms like "bang hot chicks" and "horizontal hokey pokey" or allude to performance in bed. A minor character's homosexuality is mentioned in passing.


In a few scenes, two thugs rough up Vince, point a gun at him, and threaten his life when he can't pay his debt to a loan shark. But the movie's light tone keeps the mood fairly friendly.


One use of "damn."

Social Behavior

Jennifer and Vince set out to knowingly deceive their family and friends and prey on their generosity by planning a fake wedding. Though the end result is rosy, their relationship definitely isn't a model of true love or good behavior. Vince is also a habitual gambler who's indebted to a loan shark.


Greed for presents and cash is the main motivation for Jennifer and Vince's deception.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Adults drink champagne, beer, and wine with dinner.
