Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Some Kind of Beautiful is a romantic comedy staring Pierce Brosnan, Jessica Alba, and Salma Hayek in a complicated love triangle. While there isn't much violence or consumerism to worry about, you can expect plenty of sex and profanity. Several couples are shown having sex -- their bare backs and butts are visible -- and having affairs, and one character imitates orgasm noises while walking through an elementary school. Salty language includes several uses of "f--k," "s--t," "a--hole," and more. Adults drink and smoke (both cigarettes and pot) in social settings, and one character does receive a DUI and is sent to AA meetings. Although none of the characters are particularly admirable, the movie does offer messages about prioritizing honesty in relationships and following your dreams.
