Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that two of the three daughters in this film sleep with men they are not married to; one even continues a sexual relationship with a man who used to be her boyfriend and is now just a friend with "fringe benefits." Otherwise, the film is fairly innocuous and tame.

Sexual Content

There are several sexually suggestive scenes, including one in which a man and woman break a chair with enthusiastic lovemaking.
