The content of this page was created directly by users and has not been screened or verified by IMDb staff.
Since the beliefs that parents want to instill in their children can vary greatly, we ask that, instead of adding your personal opinions about what is right or wrong in a film, you use this feature to help parents make informed viewing decisions by describing the facts of relevant scenes in the title for each one of the different categories: Sex and Nudity, Violence and Gore, Profanity, Alcohol/Drugs/Smoking, and Frightening/Intense Scenes.

Sex & Nudity

A man is in a hot tub. An elderly woman he knows drops her robe to enter the hot tub, revealing her breasts for about a second; the woman reaches under the water to touch the man while making a mildly suggestive remark. He recoils and gets out of the hot tub.

A man takes off his swim trunks and we can see his bare buttocks from a distance.

A man and a woman kiss; he touches her clothed breast.

A man kisses a woman and she pulls away, yelling at him.

We briefly see a drawing of two nude women.

A woman talks to a man about his daughter's sex life. Mostly in mild, non-explicit terms.

A woman once mentions that she breast-fed her son until he was five years old.

Violence & Gore

None, except for a comical argument in which Warren throws a pile of letters in someone's face and Warren is flailed at.

Profanity

Five F-words. Eight religious profanities/exclamations.

Friends and co-workers drink wine at Warren's retirement party. Wine and beer are consumed several other times. Warren and Roberta drink Manhattans. A character drinks expired Percodan, which makes him a bit loopy.

Themes that may be a little unsettling to younger audiences: fights, death, divorce, sex, child hunger.

The ending is quite emotional and inspirational.

Recommended for 14-15 and up.
