Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Unexpected follows two women with very different backgrounds -- one's a high school teacher and the other is her student -- as they both deal with unexpected pregnancies and the impact that impending motherhood has on their plans and dreams. Expect frank discussions about the challenges faced by new mothers, no matter their situation, as well as moderately frequent swearing (including "s--t" and "f--k"), often by teens. Despite the subject matter, there's not much sexual content; a couple embraces and kisses while undressing each other (nothing graphic shown), and a woman is shown peeing on the toilet while taking a pregnancy test.
