Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that like many of the Doris Day classics, this is a great movie with a misogynistic message: A housewife gets a job despite her husband's wishes but ultimately returns to her life at home. The problem lies not in her decision but in the way her husband manipulates her to make it. With its outdated gender roles, the film sets an even more inappropriate behavioral example for boys than it does for girls. There's also some very mild innuendo.

Sexual Content

Parents discuss having kids, some kissing between married people, and some innuendo. In one scene, a woman gives birth in a car, but there's nothing graphic or potentially disturbing to kids.
