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.

The film shows two men kissing (not passionately) many times throughout the movie.

The son meets a woman and there are sexual and implied sexual scenes between the two characters. No nudity is shown except for the side outline of a woman's breast as she dresses.

A scene of the father kissing the son's mother is repeated several times with the sense of the interaction being forced because the father is gay.

3 clear uses of the F word and 3 possible additional uses (where mumbled). 2 uses of "Christ" as an exclamation and 1 use of "Jesus Christ" as an exclamation.

The death of a parent to cancer is interlaced throughout the film through the use of flashbacks adding to the very somber sadness of the film.

Rated R for: Adult Content, Adult Language.(HBO advisory)

Rated R for language and some sexual content
