Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Take This Waltz is a mature adult drama that explores the ways in which a long-term relationship might start to feel stale, and focuses on a woman (Michelle Williams) who loves her husband (Seth Rogen) but struggles to resist a handsome neighbor. There's some intense sexuality, both in bed (one extended montage includes threesomes and other graphic sequences, and there's some female full-frontal nudity) and in tension-laden scenes of the forbidden couple trying to tamp down their feelings. A few sequences feature social drinking, and one character is a recovering alcoholic who's tottering on the edge. There's also plenty of swearing ("f--k," "s--t," and more). Ultimately, it's unlikely that the grown-up nature of the material will appeal to younger viewers.
One long montage of several sexual encounters, including threesomes and other graphic sequences, and one long, explicit monologue as a man describes what he'd like to do to please a woman. One scene features several women, old and young, showering at the gym, with full frontal nudity.
Some intense arguments.
Plenty of swearing, including "s--t," "f--k," "ass," "d--k," and "fricking."
The excitement of the new will eventually wear away in a long-term relationship, but trading in the familiar for a fresh replacement isn't necessarily the best strategy. In fact, what seemed thrilling may soon become just as commonplace, possibly leading to remorse.
