Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this amusing (if not particularly inventive) British romantic comedy includes a fair amount of swearing (though no words stronger than "s--t" and "pr--k") -- some in front of/directed at children. One kid even gives a grown-up the finger. There's also some random partial nudity -- one character likes to walk around naked below the waist, though viewers only see his backside -- and a fair amount of smoking and drinking (mostly in social situations). The lead character goes through a positive transformation, becoming more self reliant and turning himself into a better person.

Sexual Content

Some kissing; in a locker room scene, one man stands naked in front of another, who's uncomfortable with the proximity; a character likes to stand around without pants on (his backside is shown); some references to "jumping on the bed."

Violence

A fistfight between friends turns ugly when they start hitting each other with garbage can lids and kicking each other in the groin; a character trips up another on purpose, causing injury; another character, who's fond of gambling, is threatened by the people he owes money to (they nearly crush him with a piano).

Language

Language includes several uses of "s--t," as well as "pr--k," "hell," and "goddammit." A child uses the word "s--thead," and another kid gives a grown up the finger. An adult curses at a child in a moment of frustration.

Social Behavior

A man will stop at nothing to demean his girlfriend's former fiancé; he also swears at her child. Another character abandons his pregnant fiancée, though he regrets it later and appears to be a good father to their child. A gambler never seems to be able to pay his debts. Dennis, the lead character, undergoes a transformation, becoming less irresponsible and more self reliant/grown up in the end. All in all, most characters are warm and caring, despite some iffy decisions/actions.

Consumerism

The big marathon is sponsored by Nike, and on the day of the race, the swoosh logo is everywhere -- it almost feels like an ad. Some signage for bakeries and London cabs; a mention of Rolex and Channel 7.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Dennis smokes like a chimney (though he tries to quit while training); he also enjoys beer and is shown walking the streets of London drunk. Some social drinking, including parties and at bars.
