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
