- The premise of the film is that a woman is trying to find out who her father is, but because her mother slept with three men in a short amount of time, she doesn't know for sure who it is. The girl reads from her mother's diaries from the time of the love affairs, but no details are revealed.

- A young man tries to seduce an older woman: she wraps a towel around his shoulders then moves down off screen and his face suggests that she might be doing something sexual, but we see that she had been tying a towel around his waist in the shape of a diaper.

- A man's bare buttocks is briefly revealed when the towel he wears around his waist does not cover them.

- Some suggestive lines, like a woman asking another another woman if she is "getting any."

- Some mildly revealing outfits, including tight clothes, low cut shirts, and shirts that reveal shoulders and backs. A female character spends time a scene on a boat in her one-piece bathing suit while the men on the boat are shirtless, but it is not sexual.

- A woman places a phalic looking object between her legs in a musical number.

Very mild for a PG-13.

"H--l" and "d--n" are said two or three times each. "A--" is said once along with a woman calling herself a "reckless little slut"

"Good lord" and "oh my God" show up once or twice each


Donna's friends offer her some prescription tablets to cure her blocked-up nose and runny eyes.

Some drinking, just mild.

We see an ugly looking fish in a basket with large piranha-like teeth, which may frighten young children.

A woman is seen hanging over a ledge briefly..

The "Slipping through my fingers" number is very emotional

Rated PG-13 for some sex-related comments
