Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this mature comedy revisits complex themes that director Woody Allen often explores in his movies, including marriage, infidelity, and career ennui. There's frank talk about marital dissatisfaction and plenty of grass-is-greener yearning. Most of it will likely go over the head of tweens and younger teens (not that they're likely to be interested), though older ones inclined to philosophizing may find it interesting. Expect some swearing (including "f--k") and drinking and images of women in their underwear.

Sexual Content

A man massages a married woman's leg and is later seen making out with her. Characters are glimpsed undressing down to their underwear through an open window. A woman parades around in front of her husband in a negligee. Couples kiss.


Some yelling and screaming among family members. A character breaks into an apartment.


Words include "damn," "goddamn," "bloody," "ass," "hell," and (infrequently) f--k."

Social Behavior

The movie makes the point that life is filled with random swerves -- which we can either manage and embrace on our own, or we can turn to fortune-tellers, mentors, or other "gurus" for enlightenment (or at least company). Ultimately, we are the masters and mistresses of our own triumphs and disasters.


One shot of the label for Viagra and another of Corona. Some store shopping brands seen. A man wears Ralph Lauren-logoed sweaters.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

A woman often asks others for something to drink while she's visiting, usually sherry or whiskey. Later, her daughter calls her out on her fondness for liquor. A couple drinks beer while lounging on a picnic blanket at the park.
