Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that The Longest Ride, while somewhat charming, is your standard-issue Nicholas Sparks romance. It tackles some pretty weighty subjects, including death, infertility, and traumatic injuries. The amount of romance/steamy stuff is fairly on par with The Notebook -- in particular, there's a scene featuring a couple having sex in the shower (bare backsides are shown, plus a quick glimpse of her breast from the side/front). Also passionate kissing, other scenes of implied sex, and some cleavage/underwear shots. Swearing includes "bulls--t" and "hell," and there's some social drinking. Since the story involves bull riding, expect some cringe-inducing scenes in which a rider is thrown and injured; there's also a car crash that leaves the driver hurt and bloodied.

Sexual Content

A woman undresses in the shower while a man watches. They're shown kissing and presumably have sex in the shower; viewers see their bare backs/butts and quick glimpses of her breast (from the side and front). Other scenes include women in their underwear/showing cleavage and shirtless men (plus another quick shot of backside). Innuendo and references to sex. Passionate kissing and more implied sex; one montage shows a woman on top of a man (moves, sounds, but no nudity). Abstract painting of a nude woman.


Cringe-inducing scenes that show a bull rider getting thrown and severely injured. A man is shown unconscious and bleeding behind the wheel of a crashed car.


Occasional swearing includes "damm," "hell." and "bulls--t."

Social Behavior

Love conquers all. You can't always plan your future, but if you commit to the things you love, it will work out. Serious themes/subjects addressed include death, infertility, and the impact of traumatic injury.


Brands seen include Sony, Ford, iPhone, Jack Daniel's, Wrangler, and Dickies.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Social drinking at bars. College students of legal drinking age are shown holding cups of beer.
