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.
Visit our Parents Guide Help to learn more

Sex & Nudity

Early in the movie and in other scenes in the movie, Rosamund Pike's character Jessica appears in low cut clothes and shows a bit of clevage.

Later in the movie, there is a scene where Owen Wilson's character gets home and is kissing his wife with her straddling his lap, while it doesn't go beyond this it feels sexually charged.

Violence & Gore

In black and white historical footage, a hunter shoots a duck out of the air and we see him pick up several dead ducks by their tied-together necks.

Half a dozen scenes show people cutting up salmon on chopping blocks to use as bait to lure sea birds in for photography; we see fish sliced open, piles of fish skin, bloody water and fish bones as well as a bird pulling a bit of fish skin over some ice.

Profanity

At lest 1 use of God damn it, a$$hole, a$$, sh$@ 2 hells and some uses of bitch.

When a man tells a male friend that a very rare bird can be sighted nearby the second one responds by saying "What's he smokin'? I'd like to get me some of that."

Several New Year's Eve parties include men and women sipping champagne.

Two older people sleep in front of a TV with open beer bottles sitting on an end table near them.

We see a glass of beer in front of a computer keyboard.

Men and women drink from glasses filled with champagne at several holiday parties.

Three restaurant scenes show men and women sipping alcohol.

A bar scene shows two men drinking cocktails.

A bunkhouse scene shows men and women talking and drinking beer and liquor.

suggested rating PG-13 for language and some sensuality.
