Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this cinematic interpretation of Oscar Wilde's delightful period novel is enjoyable, indeed, and contains little content of concern. There's plenty of deception and lying, all played for laughs, and some social drinking and smoking, but for the most part the film is fine for young teens and up.

Sexual Content

Courtship and flirting. Some tender kissing.

Violence

Not applicable

Language

Not applicable

Social Behavior

While true love conquers all, the characters in this witty period drama think that lying is an acceptable way to win their beloved's heart, or avoid their creditors. Some of the people seem more interested in a suitor's bank balance than his character.

Consumerism

Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Period-appropriate social drinking and smoking.
