One Fine DayClose
Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that One Fine Day touches on issues including divorce and absentee parents. One child wanders off continuously, scaring caregivers. There's some swearing ("s--t," "a--hole," "bastard," etc.), plus kissing, innuendo, and scenes of a woman in her bra. But overall this is light, romantic, escapist fare.
