Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that The Meddler, though often funny, deals with serious matters -- including grief, the loss of a loved one, career dissatisfaction, and the like. There's some swearing, including a use of "f--k," as well as a scene in which a character panics and ingests someone else's bag of pot so that police won't find it. Other scenes have social drinking, allusions to sex (including a post-casual sex pregnancy scare), a very brief mention of abortion, and some pretty frank moments of self-reflection.

Sexual Content

Allusion to using an online website to find a quick hook-up; a woman thinks she's pregnant after having casual sex (the incident isn't shown).




Infrequent, but runs the gamut from "damn" to a use of "f--k."

Social Behavior

Healthy boundaries are important, but so is caring about the ones you love.


Apple products (especially iPhone) and brands/companies like Crate & Barrel and Cadillac make an appearance.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

A character panics and ingests a bag of pot that belongs to someone else so that the police won't find it. Social drinking.
