Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Kate lies to her boss, inventing a fiancé to give herself an air of stability. Much of the plot revolves around finessing farcical situations caused by the lie. Kate has an unrequited crush on the playboy Sam, but he only pursues her upon hearing news of her engagement, thinking she's unavailable. Kate wants to sustain the lie to keep him interested. They kiss in bed without clothes, but no body parts are shown. Characters say "s--t," "sucks," and "damn" and make sexual allusions. They also drink alcohol. There's not a lot here to interest kids, unless they're die-hard Jennifer Aniston fans.

Sexual Content

A couple is undressed but covered by sheets. A couple kisses heavily on a couch but remain clothed. Kate's mother asks if she's used contraception offscreen and she replies, "A diaphragm, a sponge, and a rubber." She also tells her mother, "We had sex, the really dirty kind."


Not applicable


"S--t," "s---ty," "crap," "sucks," and "damn."

Social Behavior

Although the nice guy seems to end up with the girl, at first he's part of a scheme in which he pretends to be Kate's fiancé to further her career. Lying and subterfuge play a big part in the plot.
