Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that -- in terms of swearing, sexuality, violence, and commercialism -- there's hardly any age-inappropriate content in this romantic (if cliched) drama based on a novel by Nicholas Sparks. That said, it may not interest a lot of young since since it deals with mature subjects like infidelity, divorce, and death (albeit with plenty of empathy). Adult characters drink heavily in one scene.
A couple falls into bed together; only their faces are shown. They're also seen lolling about under the covers, with shoulders bared.
A storm cuts a violent swath through the town of Rodanthe. Couples fight heatedly. A man kicks a car out of anger and lurks menacingly.
One use of "s--t"; otherwise, "son of a bitch," "hell," and "ass" are about as salty as it gets.
Friends are quite supportive of one another. Parents seem genuinely concerned about their children.
Not too many products, though the movie could serve as a tourism reel for the Outer Banks.
Drugs / Tobacco /
Two adults drink heavily in one scene; some additional social drinking.
