Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that some kids will want to see this movie thanks to star Will Ferrell, although they may be disappointed because it's not his usual silly comedy routine. Instead, the film explores some fairly heavy concepts about life and death. Novelist Karen Eiffel is a depressed chain-smoker, and Harold Crick (Ferrell's character) is a loner who suffers severe obsessive-compulsive disorder.

Sexual Content

Romantic tension between Harold and Ana. Harold studies her breasts. Brief nudity (a character's butt is shown).

Violence

Harold experiences some real peril dodging his imminent death (heavy equipment breaks through a wall, etc.). Ana throws things around her kitchen. Some images of animal violence in nature sequences.

Language

Some name calling. "Shut up, you stupid voices!"

Social Behavior

Harold learns that there's more to life than doing the same thing (alone) day after day.

Consumerism

A wristwatch figures prominently in the storyline. Also guitars.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

The novelist is a chain smoker. A psychiatrist advises Harold to use medication to quell the voices in his head.
