Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this romantic comedy, while not brimming with sexual content, does address the fairly complex, mature topic of becoming a single mother by choice ... and the methods necessary to accomplish that goal. Expect references to what a sperm donor does to collect his specimen behind closed doors, discussions about the insemination process, and visuals of the substance in question (in a cup, of course). There's also some swearing and a fair amount of drinking (one character, in fact, makes a critical decision while sloshed).
- Sexual Content
- The film's premise revolves around a woman's decision to have a baby on her own via a sperm donor, and there's much discussion about the mechanical aspects of this choice, including what men do to "collect" their donation. Couples also flirt and kiss.
- Not applicable
- Characters use words like "lard ass" and, occasionally, "s--t." Also "hell," "damn," and "oh my God."
- Social Behavior
- The movie sends the message that while families don't always start traditionally, when love is the foundation, they have a great start. It also says that relationships take work and courage -- if you take a chance, you might just get what you want (although it does seem like one main character gets what he wants despite a big breach of trust).

- Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
- Drinking at parties and restaurants. A main character sabotages his friend's pregnancy while he's heavily under the influence. Another character fishes a cigarette out of her bag and is about to smoke it before someone else swats it away. One reference to popping pills.
