Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this uninspired romantic comedy with an action twist is a little more violent than most films of this genre. It has gunfights and knee-whackings, but no outright gore. There's a fair amount of swearing, including "ass" and "s--t," and an improbable reunion between a career woman and the ex-husband who can't seem to stop making fun of her, which sends some mixed messages about love and relationships. A scene set in a strip club includes some barely clad women (thongs, bras/pasties); there are plenty of references to sex as well.
A couple banters flirtatiously. There's talk of "getting laid" and many other references to sex. A seduction attempt includes someone being straddled. Very scantily clad (thongs, bras/pasties) women dance in a strip bar. A man and a woman kiss.
Loan sharks whack a guy's leg with a golf club. Two men have a fistfight at a parade. A formerly-married couple bicker; she throws things at him, he insults her. Guns are drawn and fired; two characters are injured. A street chase results in an SUV careening off the road and rolling over. A guy is Tasered.
Pretty pungent, indluding "ass," "hell," "s--t," "pr--k," "Goddamn," and "dick."
Aniston's character is supposedly independent and successful, and yet she's still painted as someone who's fragile and incomplete unless she's with a guy. And not just any guy, but one who -- what else? -- needs redeeming. Buried amid the rubble of unfunny jokes is an interesting, but hardly surprising message about how relationships crumble because of two people's shortcomings, not usually one.
Some logos for champagne (Moet); newspapers (Daily News); fast-food restaurants (Dunkin' Donuts and Baskin Robbins) and hotels (Trump Taj Mahal and Borgata).
Drugs / Tobacco /
Stolen cocaine figures into the story, though nobody is shown using it. A main character is briefly seen drunk.
