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.
- Sexual Content
- 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."
- Social Behavior
- 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 / Alcohol
- Stolen cocaine figures into the story, though nobody is shown using it. A main character is briefly seen drunk.
