Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that although Welcome to Me stars Kristen Wiig and has funny scenes/moments, it deals with serious subjects and is ultimately a somewhat disturbing dramedy about what untreated mental illness really looks like. In one scene, a woman parades stark naked (breasts, pubic area visible) through a Las Vegas casino. Other scenes show her having sex and administering oral sex (no sensitive body parts on view, though it's clear what she's doing). There's also plenty of swearing, including "f--k" and "c--t," some angry outbursts and fights, and scenes in which adult characters drink and smoke weed.
- Sexual Content
- A woman and a man have sex; no sensitive body parts are shown. A woman appears to be giving a man oral sex (no private parts shown). A woman strips naked and walks through a casino, fully naked (pubic hair and breasts shown).
- In fits of rage and frustration, Alice throws things, screams at people, and breaks things. Two brothers get into a fist fight and go after each other, physically and verbally.
- Frequent use of everything from "damn" and "s--t" to "f--k" and "c--t."
- Social Behavior
- Just because someone is suffering from mental illness doesn't mean they don't have hopes and dreams that can and should be addressed. That said, many of the laughs come at the expense of someone whose illness is left untreated and runs amok.
- Products/brands mentioned or seen include Apple, O Magazine, Abilify, Dodge, Sony, Toyota, and more.
- Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
- Adults are seen drinking and smoking pot. Prescription medicine (and Alice's refusal to take it) plays a role.
