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.
