Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Old Fashioned is a faith-based romance about a character who, because of his troubled past, wishes to marry -- but he refuses to date, touch, or be in the same room with any woman beforehand. Audiences who buy into the character's beliefs may find it refreshing, but others will likely be baffled. And for all of the main character's purity, the movie does deal with sexual/sex-related themes (unexpected pregnancy, etc.) and has frequent sex talk, including a "shock jock" radio DJ who talks about women and sex. Viewers see images from a Girls Gone Wild-type DVD (i.e. bikini-clad young women flirting/vamping), as well as a stripper at a bachelor party. A bouncer threatens the main character, and a woman tells a story about how an ex-boyfriend broke her wrist. Language isn't an issue, and substance use is limited to adult characters drinking socially in bars.

Sexual Content

Sex and adult relationships are frequently discussed, including unexpected pregnancy, etc. A stripper begins undressing at a bachelor party. Images from a Girls Gone Wild-type DVD include young women wearing bikinis and flirting with the camera. A woman lets herself get picked up in a bar. A "shock jock" radio DJ talks about women and sex. Some innuendo.


A burly-looking bouncer threatens the main character. A woman wears a cast on her wrist; she explains that her previous boyfriend broke it. Some arguing.


One use of "shut up."

Social Behavior

Attempts to show how womanizing and partying are bad, but the other extreme (no dating/touching/kissing before marriage) isn't presented as the only appealing way, either, as many likable supporting characters' lives deviate from that ideal.


One scene lingers in a supermarket aisle, with Kellogg's cereals and Dentyne gum shown for a long while.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Some scenes take place in bars, with adult characters drinking socially.
