Some kissing and playful touching between an engaged couple, but no sex is seen.

A young boy tells a young girl he wants to marry her someday so he can kiss her anytime he wants. Later, when they are adults, she tells him the same thing.

Some homosexual references. A minor character is portrayed as being gay. At one point, someone tells him to just go to a gay bar, which makes him angry.

In the deleted scenes on the DVD a woman is seen from the rear wearing only panties.

Two kids are seen running around a beach during a thunderstorm. Lightning strikes toward the earth a few times, making them scream. There is one spot in the sand that is sizzling.

A woman is punched by another woman.

After drinking a lot, a woman gets sick in someone's truck. It's heard, not seen.

Uses of B*tch and Sh*t a couple of times, otherwise just mild language. Four uses of, in some manner, the Lord's name in vain.

One use of "hick"

There are a couple bar scenes where characters are drunk and behaving erratically. In one scene, Melanie gets very drunk, stumbles around, and makes embarrassing comments. Later, she throws up in a car, and her ex-husband has to carry her to bed.

At one point, a man drinks an entire can in one gulp. He gets mad when someone replaced his alcohol with light beer.

A woman makes a reference to her husband being drunk at their wedding reception, to the point where they couldn't even dance together.

A young mother brings her baby to a bar, which can be considered questionable.

Some arguing between married/divorced couples. A man grabs an intoxicated woman by the shoulder and pulls her out of a bar, yelling at her for her behavior.

A reference is made to a dog dying, although it is not shown. A character visits the dog's grave in one scene.

Some thunderstorm scenes might be considered slightly intense for younger viewers.

A dog jumps into a lake and doesn't emerge for a relatively long period. Melanie asks if the dog can swim, and Jake says "It doesn't look like it."

Rated PG-13 for some language/sexual references
