Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Reach Me is a dramedy about the effects that a self-help book has on a group of people. One character is a trigger-happy cop who shoots and kills -- or beats up -- several characters. There's additional shouting and fighting, plus a car crash and a biting dog. The top of a female character's naked bottom is shown (another sports revealing lingerie), and a woman playing an actress is coerced into removing her bra (out of view) on a movie set (tops of shoulders shown); she's later touched against her will under the covers (also out of view). Language includes several uses of "s--t," "t-ts," "bitch," "ass," and more, and there's some smoking -- both cigarettes and a fake joint (it's oregano). The self-improvement aspect might spark discussion among teens and parents.

Sexual Content

A woman's naked bottom is shown (she drops her pants during a prison scene). A woman in lingerie. Kissing, flirting. While making a film, an actress removes her bra under the covers for a sex scene (tops of shoulders shown). The male actor touches her below (against her will), also under the covers. He's later seen with two women leaving his trailer. A man in underwear.


Guns, shooting, and killing, somewhat comical in tone. Women fight in prison; one is bashed with a chair. Violent stories are told with brief violent flashbacks. Thugs terrorize women. A car crash. A man bashed in the teeth. A dog bites a man's nose. Punching, fighting, and yelling. A woman is forced to remove her underwear on a movie set and is touched against her will.


Several uses of "s--t," "t-ts," "bitch," "ass," "damn," "hell," "bastard," "crap," and "scheisse (German for "s--t")." A man has Tourette's Syndrome. Racial slur (rap music is called "jungle jingles").

Social Behavior

The plot has a lot to do with a self-help book that aids people in dealing with adversity, changing for the better, and finding their true potential. One man helps another quit smoking.
