Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this film is too grown-up for the younger members of Tyler Perry's ultra-loyal fanbase. Though there's no explicit sex, and the language is fairly mild (occasional uses of "ass" is about as strong as it gets), the movie's themes -- infidelity, deception, and vulnerability within a marriage -- are definitely meant for adults. Also expect plenty of sexual innuendoes, some characterizations bordering on stereotype (the leech-like ex-wife, the shopping-crazy mistress, etc.), and social drinking.
- Sexual Content
- Couples kiss and cuddle (and try to figure out whether to have sex). Conversations are peppered with stories and innuendoes about venereal diseases, bedroom behavior, and more.
- A dinner table conversation ends up becoming a verbal free-for-all. A wife hits her husband with a wine bottle. Later, a husband hurls his wife's Blackberry at the wall.
- Not too much swearing, but numerous uses of the words "slut," "ho," "ass," and even "mortherf-" (the person stops before saying "f--ker").
- Social Behavior
- Overall, the relationships portrayed are fairly loving, though one couple bickers quite a bit. But two husbands cheat on their wives, and one is quite vicious and humiliating in the way he jokes about his wife's weight (he even makes her drive alone while he travels by plane so he can avoid paying for two seats for her).
- Fancy cars (Mercedes) and designer duds signify a comfortable lifestyle for many of the couples, but it doesn't feel like a commercial.
- Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
- No smoking, but some social drinking (wine at dinner and at a reception). One character admits to drinking way too much.
- Age appropriate
- Not an issue
- Depends on your kid and your family
- Not appropriate for kids of the age most likely to want to see it
