Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that They Came Together is a send-up of the tried-and-true romcom genre, starring Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler as the destined-to-be-together couple. Expect lots of swearing (including "f--k" and "s--t"), one all-out brawl that's played for laughs, moderate drinking, and a few raunchy, intentionally over-the-top sex scenes (no sensitive body parts shown, but there is partial nudity and lots of vigorous motions and sounds). The movie is from the same folks behind cult fave Wet Hot American Summer, so that might make some teens more interested.
Two sex scenes are both explicit and ludicrous, featuring couples engaged in over-the-top energetic, acrobatic bedroom antics. There's nudity, though none of the participants' genitals are visible, and there's plenty of vigorous motions and sounds, though the action mostly takes place either in shadow or in the background. Viewers can tell something is going on, but they don't get a good look at it. Also plenty of sexual references/talk.
A jilted suitor attacks his ex's new boyfriend with a sword; when disarmed, he resorts to his fists in an all-out, bare-knuckle brawl that's played mostly for laughs.
Frequent strong language, ranging from "f--k," and "s--t" to "damm" and "ass."
True love wins out (as usual in movie romances), even though Joel and Molly encounter a variety of roadblocks on the path to couplehood.
New York City gets a big plug, almost becoming a character itself.

Adults drink wine at meals, and some scenes feature characters having stronger drinks at a bar.
