|MPAA||Rated PG for thematic material, language and a mild suggestive moment|
Sex & Nudity
- John and Aileen engage in a late-night interlude. (We see Aileen loosening John's tie.) The next morning, a nurse walks into the Crowley house and discovers the partly clothed pair on the couch. Aileen, in a negligee, introduces John to the nurse as her husband as John hurriedly tries to pull on his pants. "Glad to hear it," the nurse says.
Violence & Gore
- A security guard points a gun at an intruder. Frustrated, Stonehill throws binders and piles of paper. John injures his hand on a window ledge. (He washes the bleeding wound in a sink.)
- 11 uses of "shit", 1 use of "bitch", 1 use of "bastard", 1 use of "goddamn", 4 uses of "ass", 1 use of "damn", 8 uses of "hell", 1 use of "piss", 1 use of "crap", 4 uses of "Oh my God", 2 uses of "My God", 2 uses of "Jesus", 2 uses of "Oh, Jesus", and 2 uses of "For Christ's Sake". The word "balls" is used once as a slang term for "testicles". This is a bit more language than most PG movies today.
- About a dozen s-words. Sporadically used, a collection of other curse words includes "Hell," "Damn," "Asshole" and "Bitch." God's name is misused eight or 10 times; it's paired with "Damn" once. Jesus' name is abused a half-dozen times.
Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking
- We see Stonehill with a lit cigarette in his hand and an open bottle of beer on a nearby table. He and John meet to talk in a bar. Glasses of wine are seen at a dinner get-together.
Frightening & Intense Scenes
- Dr. Robert Stonehill is very intense and yells a lot, very loudly. It might scare younger kids.
- The two Crowley kids, who are afflicted with Pompe disease, are seen in wheelchairs and hooked up to machines a lot of the time. The young daughter, Megan, is hospitalized early in the movie and nearly flatlines in one scene. The doctors call a frantic "code blue" and attempt to revive her. They succeed, but the parents are seen very upset and crying as they watch this unfold.
