Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Will Smith + holidays usually equals blockbuster. But this drama's mysterious title and trailer may turn off younger fans who'd rather see a comedy or fantasy. And viewers in the mood for a feel-good story should look elsewhere: The movie tackles heavy themes like what it means to live a meaningful life, embracing death in the face of a terminal illness, and using grief as a motivation to act selflessly. The language and consumerism are mild, the violence is limited to (admittedly disturbing) scenes of two fatal incidents, and the sexuality is one love scene featuring a bare shoulders and backs. All of that said, the central message -- giving of yourself no matter what the cost -- may be too mature for young viewers to handle.

Sexual Content

A couple kisses/embraces, and another couple makes love -- thier bare backs and shoulders are visible.

Violence

Disturbing glimpses of a fatal, multi-car accident are shown. A battered woman has a black eye. One character almost dies, and another character does die in a bizarre way. Ben needs a cast after smashing up his house.

Language

On the milder side for a PG-13 film, but still a couple of uses of "s--t," "hell," "ass," "goddamn," etc.

Social Behavior

Helping others is an important message for children and teens to take seriously, but purposely endangering your life in the process isn't advisable.

Consumerism

Featured brands include Ford, Mercury Records, Kiehl's skincare products, and Travel Inn motel.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Ben and Emily drink wine at dinner.
