Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Ricki and the Flash doesn't shy away from showing mother-child (and ex-spouse) conflict. It talks quite openly about why the characters' relationships are a mess, though its ultimate message is that you can fix your mistakes if you really want to. Some of the issues at play are fairly heavy -- abandonment, parent-child estrangement, conflicting political viewpoints, accepting someone's sexual identity, etc. -- making it pretty intense for younger viewers. Other mature content includes strong language (including "s--t" and one "f--k"), sexual innuendo, kissing/starting to take clothes off (though nothing graphic shown), drinking (sometimes too much; hangovers are shown), and pot smoking.

Sexual Content

Many sexual references/innuendoes. A couple is shown kissing and starting to disrobe. Woman wrapped in a towel.

Violence

Some heated arguments. Reference to a character's recent suicide attempt (nothing shown).

Language

Language includes "s--t," "a--hole," and a use of "f--k."

Social Behavior

Many mistakes are made, but the ultimate message is that it's possible to fix your mistakes, even if they're major and even if they were long ago. You just have to really want to repair the damage.

Consumerism

Brands/products seen include Jet Blue, Sony, and Gibson guitars.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

One character drinks fairly heavily as a coping mechanism after her divorce and is shown hungover. References to people needing drinks during emotional moments. Two adults and their adult daughter smoke pot together and are shown giggling while high. Social drinking by adults.
