Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that although this 1950s-set comedy starring Renee Zellweger is fairly light and frothy in tone, it takes on mature themes like adultery, single parenthood, and divorce's effects on children. In addition to plenty of irresponsible parenting, expect some swearing (including "f--k") and sexuality (including a scene in which a teen girl bares her breasts to a boy, though they're not shown). Still, in the end, the story proves uplifting, even moving, despite some strong life lessons.

Sexual Content

A woman is mistakenly arrested for prostitution; a wife catches her husband in bed with another woman (no nudity, though he does walk around in his boxers while he and his spouse bicker). A teenage girl bares her breasts to a boy her age (but they're not shown); he responds in a fairly gentlemanly fashion.


A man lunges after a woman, who protects herself and her son by brandishing a fireplace poker. A mother slaps her son. A man pulls a knife on a woman, and her son defends them both by firing a gun.


Swearing includes several uses of "s--t," plus "bitch," "goddamn," "hell," "damn," and one use of "f--k."

Social Behavior

Parents start out behaving badly, but they eventually learn to prioritize their children and get their act together (some do, anyway). Some teens appear derisive of their parents, especially their mother, but they end up appreciating her attempts to better herself and her family.
