Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that This Is Where I Leave You -- based on Jonathan Topper's novel and starring Jason Bateman, Tina Fey, and Jane Fonda -- is a hilarious, emotional dramedy about coming home and finding yourself, sometimes at a place where you didn't expect to do so. Though it's funny, it explores some serious themes, including miscarriage, infidelity, and death. Characters grapple, often inelegantly, with very complicated issues that may be over the head of tweens and younger teens. They also swear a lot, sometimes in front of children (including "s--t" and "f--k"), drink socially (sometimes getting wasted), and smoke weed without many real consequences. There's a fair bit of sex talk/jokes related to things like crude nicknames and boob jobs; a couple having an affair is caught in the act, and they're both seen naked from behind. Other pairs are shown in bed before/after sex, and one couple's amorous interlude is overheard via a baby monitor.

Sexual Content

A man has energetic sex with someone else's wife; they're caught (after being observed for a few seconds), and viewers see both of them naked from behind. Some sexual sounds are heard over a baby monitor by a big crowd of people. Some kissing and scenes of couples in bed before and after implied sex, under the covers with shoulders bared. A character's boob job is a subject of conversation/jokes throughout the movie. Jokes about a character whose childhood nickname was "Boner." Lots of talk about the sex life of a couple trying to conceive. References to masturbation, first-date sex in a car, and more.


A woman punches a man. Brothers tussle, and one ends up with a cut on his forehead. They also chase each other in anger.


Strong language isn't constant but includes "f--k," "s--t," "a--hole," "whore," and "bitch."

Social Behavior

Families come with all sorts of dysfunction and uncomfortable shared histories, but they don't have to destroy relationships.


Brands seen/mentioned include Toyota, iPhone, Adidas, VTech, TicTac, Jeep, and more.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Characters take shots of hard liquor and drink beer and wine at all hours of the day. Some drink to the point of inebriation. One character references Xanax; a group of guys smokes weed in a synagogue classroom -- it's presented as harmless fun.
