Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this romantic comedy focuses on family tensions emerging when grown children come home for the Christmas holidays. Characters argue and pout; brothers fight, causing black eyes and cut cheeks. Characters drink at a bar, to the point that one passes out and doesn't remember how she ends up in her fiancé's brother's bed. One character is accused of racism, homophobia, and general "uptightness." While it's mainly comedic, the movie also includes a plot thread where a character is dying of cancer (brief glimpse of her mastectomy scar).

Sexual Content

Sexual activity hinted at (woman wakes up in wrong brother's bed); gay couple kisses chastely; parents kiss and snuggle in bed, revealing very briefly the mother's mastectomy scar.

Violence

Some fighting between brothers, treated as comedy and leaving black eyes and cut faces.

Language

Minor language ("damn," "s--t").

Social Behavior

Holidays are stressful, but family members really love each other.

Consumerism

Brief shot of Santa/Norelco ad on TV; beer labels visible in bar; an NPR logo marks a character's "liberal" leanings.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Drinking in bar, to point of passing out and forgetting the evening; references to pot-smoking.
