Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this 1998 romantic comedy may seem old-fashioned to teen viewers, especially given the technology -- dial-up Internet access and AOL chat rooms -- at the heart of its plot. But they'll likely find it entertaining, too, and still relatable. There's a chain-stores-versus-independent-stores debate that may give young viewers pause (but would surely be informative). Plus, expect some discussions about infidelity and cybersex.

Sexual Content

Some references to a man dating women way younger than him; two characters email each other and chat online and acquainted without their respective partners knowing; and there's a passionate embrace and kiss in the end. Discussions of infidelity and cybersex.

Violence

Not applicable

Language

Infrequent use of "ass" and "hell."

Social Behavior

Romantic but confusing: Woman falls in love with the very man who helped destroy her family bookstore -- so perhaps the message is, love conquers all? Messages about corporate power over mom-and-pop business.

Consumerism

Prominent logos for Starbucks, Baby Gap, America Online (and the tell-tale sound of its dial-up service), Zabar's, VISA, etc.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Social drinking, primarily wine, at events and restaurants.
