Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that the movie includes some sad spots where the wannabe romantic partners can't meet for years, only exchange letters. A young man fights with his father, then the father dies, which makes the son cry. A bus accident kills a pedestrian (you hear crash and see prone body afterwards) and upsets a female doctor who's on the scene. Characters drink in bars and at parties. A woman kisses a man who's not her fiancé, who's upset when he catches them.

Sexual Content

"Long-distance" romance is mostly chaste (they live two years apart), but grants them two passionate kisses; Kate wears a nightie that shows cleavage.


A bus hits a car and leaves a pedestrian dead; when Kate tries to help, she's sad when the victim dies.


Several uses of "hell," one each of s-word, "For Christ's sake," "godamnit."

Social Behavior

Characters in love are loyal, characters looking for love sometimes hurt others, and a father-son relationship is tense (mutual anger).


Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Characters drink wine and beer a couple of times, liquor and champagne in social/party settings.
