Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this lighthearted Alexis Bledel comedy is on the milder side for a PG-13 -- expect some swearing (including a few "s--t"s and one "f--k") and some social drinking, making out, and discussion of an STD. But otherwise it's sweet, if formulaic. The story attempts to address some "serious" topics -- identity, the transition between college and "the real world" -- but it doesn't get too deep. It has a feel-good message, though that message is ultimately a little muddled: Does the perfect boyfriend really trump real-life concerns like keeping a job you worked so hard to get?
Some making out, but nothing too explicit. Some discussion of herpes.
A character runs over his neighbor's cat, which, coincidentally, he despises. Some bickering.
Swearing includes one "f--k," plus several uses of "s--t," as well as "ass," "crap," "son of a bitch," "damn," "goddamn," "hell," "oh God," and more.
The movie's main message seems to be that love and family come first. That's admirable, but the ending somewhat undermines the idea of why it's important to do what you love, too, sort of suggesting that finally getting together with the right guy trumps everything else.
