The Accidental HusbandClose
Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this by-the-book romantic comedy is entertaining enough, and may offer laughs to teens who adore the genre. The sexual situations are very mild for the PG-13 rating, the language is only occasionally spicy, and a character gets very drunk in a bar scene.
- Sexual Content
- A passionate embrace (kissing, groping) in an elevator, while security watches via camera; a woman takes her top off in front of a guy (she's wearing a camisole underneath). A quick soft-focus moment showing a couple in bed.
- Two men exchange sharp words over a girl.
- From "ass" to "crap" to "bulls--t," and one instance of "f--k."
- Social Behavior
- Uma Thurman's character dispenses sage advice about marriage -- for example, roughly 43 percent of nuptials end in divorce, so it's important to pick the right partner -- but, as is typical in rom-coms, the movie's premise contradicts this somewhat.
- One character totes a plastic bag with the logo for the pharmacy, Duane Reade, clearly visible. At a bar, name brands and logos for beer, including Heineken and Bass, are displayed.
- Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
- Friends, old and new, down shots at a bar, and one of them gets very drunk.
- Age appropriate
- Not an issue
- Depends on your kid and your family
- Not appropriate for kids of the age most likely to want to see it
