Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this movie has very mature material including a graphic and bloody suicide attempt, sexual references and situations (adultery and a possible romance between adopted siblings), and painful issues of betrayal and deception. There are references to a tragic death. An adopted child is made to feel like an outsider. A character has a serious drug abuse problem. Some people may find the light-hearted treatment of these issues offensive and kids will probably miss the dry humor completely.

Sexual Content

Sexual references, including adultery and technical incest (adopted siblings). A picture of a nude woman is shown. A woman grabs another woman's bare breast in a brief flashback scene showing Margot's past love affairs. Kissing.


Graphic and bloody attempted suicide. One character loses a finger. A dog gets hit by a car. One friend stabs another. The death of a spouse/mother in a plane crash is mentioned.


"F--k," "s--t," and everything in between.

Social Behavior

A portrait of a very dysfunctional extended family, but it shows they care about each other deeply as well. The three Tenenbaum children are pushed to succeed at an early age and suffer in adulthood because of it.
