Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Obvious Child is a compassionate, unconventional, and very funny indie dramedy about a twentysomething woman who must make a complicated decision after a break up and subsequent hook-up brings her to a crossroads. The film uses humor to explore mature themes, including unexpected pregnancy, modern-day romantic entanglements, and unemployment. Characters swear constantly (including the "f--k," "s--t," and much more) and drink, sometimes to the point of inebriation. There's no outright nudity, but expect plenty of frank talk and jokes about sex.
Lots of raunchy talk about body parts and sex (mostly jokes), and some kissing and making out in underwear, but no nudity. The fall-out of an unexpected pregnancy (after unsafe sex) is at the heart of the movie.
Some yelling and screaming.
Very frequent use of every swear word in the book, including "f--k," "s--t," "bitch," "p---y," "c--t," and more.
When you find yourself in a bind, trust yourself to figure out what to do, and reach out to others when you need help. If you make a mistake, accept that there are consequences, and deal with them.
Some logos seen, mainly an Apple computer and iPhone. Some brands are also mentioned, including Kia, Eileen Fisher, and Tylenol PM.
Drugs / Tobacco /
Lots of drinking in bars, with one scene showing a woman, who's upset at having been dumped, downing shots and swigging liquor from an open bottle. A major plot point develops because the characters get so inebriated that they have unprotected sex.
