Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Paradise follows a sheltered young woman, aptly named Lamb (Julianne Hough), who sets off for Las Vegas on a mission to discover everything she'd been kept away from by her strict religious upbringing. She's joined by a lounge singer and a bartender (Octavia Spencer and Russell Brand) for a wild night that includes plenty of drinking, a big cigar, sexual innuendo, some mild swearing, a very small tattoo, and some important moments of self discovery, in screenwriter Diablo Cody's directing debut.

Sexual Content

Some flirtation, a bit of innuendo, and a brief kiss. A group of women at a bachelorette party drink liquor from penis-shaped containers.


Not applicable


Occasional swearing, including "bitch," "ass," "d--k" and "s--t."

Social Behavior

Life can be fun and exciting, even activities that others might consider "bad." Lamb, who's led a very sheltered life, is out to see for herself whether the things she's been taught are as wrong and heinous as she's been told. It's a good idea, and even though she realizes her parents were right in some ways, it's still better that she can make that decision on her own, based on her own experiences.


The Las Vegas Palms casino plays an important role in the story. Many well-known brands are mentioned by name, including Google, Kroger, L.L. Bean, Twinkies, Disneyland, Red Lobster, and Fisher Price. One character has an iPod.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Several scenes take place at bars and nightclubs with people drinking heavily. The main character gets extremely drunk and then throws up a trash can, barely able to maintain her composure -- but it's a learning experience for her. Two people are briefly seen smoking a cigar.
