Sex & Nudity

  • Several-minute long scene where a woman is wearing an effectively see-through dress and no bra.
  • There is no full nudity. There is one bedroom scene. There is kissing. There are a number of scenes where sex is implied.

Violence & Gore


  • One "Son of a B****".

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • The characters smoke marijuana, which appears to make them funny, happy, and apt to spontaneously dance in gas station stores; marijuana is presented throughout the movie as something harmless and enjoyable.
  • There is alot of smoking. Practically every scene has a character with a cigarette in their hand. I felt like I could breathe the smoke throught the TV. There are also a few drug scenes. One in particular stands out. Alcohol is also present but the smoking and drugs completely override it.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Numerous scenes that depict the pain of widespread divorce. Could be intense for people who have divorced or suffered as a result of their parents' divorce.
  • There are emotionally intense scenes but none that are frightening.
