MPAA Rated PG-13 for coarse humor, sexual content and language

Sex & Nudity

  • Hannah wet by rain kisses Jacob in the pub.
  • An 13-year old boy is caught masturbating by his 17-year old female babysitter. The scene is played out to be awkward and nothing is directly shown to the audience, just the girl's reaction.
  • A 13-year old boy keeps pestering his cute 17-year old babysitter to give him nude photos of her. She finally relents and does. No nudity shown. She is shot from the shoulders up when she poses for her nude selfies.
  • The basis for this film is that Cal's wife, Emily, slept with another man and now wants a divorce.
  • The sexual content of this film is made up more in dialogue and implied instances than actual scenes. One-liners, double entendres, and crude humor fill the script. Male genitalia is referred to, Cal constantly talks about how his wife is "screwing" another man, and other references to pole dancing, oral sex (one joke talks about doing it for 45 minutes), and porno videos are made.
  • It's obviously implied that Robbie is masturbating when Jessica walks in on him unannounced (we don't see anything except Jessica's expression and the conversations that follow). Robbie, with a huge crush on Jessica, says that he has a picture of her he does it with, and also tells everyone at a graduation speech his habit.
  • Jessica, interested in Cal, asks a friend who sleeps with older men what she should do. The friend, making orgasmic looks and sounds, tells Jessica to take nude pictures of herself. We see her bare shoulders and legs as she does so, but when a giant fiasco occurs with her parents finding out and assaulting Cal, Jessica gives the pictures to Robbie, as she kisses him on the cheek.

Violence & Gore

  • Cal purposely rolls out of a moving vehicle, bruising and scratching himself.
  • Jacob and Cal slap each other's faces in manly man gestures of both camaraderie and superiority.
  • Jacob jokes about euthanasia.
  • Men half-jokingly says things like they'll shoot someone in the face or beat someone's brains out.
  • Robbie vows to kill anyone who hurts Jessica.
  • Men punch, tackle and otherwise attack one another. (The cops are called to break up the brawl.)


  • Some rather crude jokes are made.
  • Other language includes one or two uses each of "hell," "dick," "damn," and "son of a bitch."
  • God's name is abused at least 25 times; Jesus' around six or seven.
  • 10 uses of "shit".
  • 5 "assholes" are uttered by a 13-year-old Robbie. Several uses by others throughout.
  • 2 uses of "fuck". One use of the middle finger.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Hannah digs for Dutch courage by guzzling hard liquor whenever she's upset or nervous.
  • Cal tries to drown his sorrows in alcohol.
  • Jacob insists on buying women drinks even when they at first refuse.
  • Kate, who tells Cal she's a recovering alcoholic five years sober, apparently makes a habit of tempting herself by hanging out at bars.
  • Hannah and Jacob go to a liquor store.
  • Valium is joked about.
  • Multiple scenes occur in a bar, where we not only see folks drink and get drunk, but we also see the camera going out of its way to ogle the bottles of booze lined up around the room.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The main character is likely depressed through much of the film, which may be intense for some. It is not focused on outside of heavy drinking and is used as a tool to lead to action.
  • The subject of a teenager making nude photos for a much older man may be intense for some viewers.

Sex & Nudity

  • Cal hooks up with 9 different women after his divorce, although we only see one of the affairs, the one between him and Kate. We see them passionately kiss, caress, and writhe around Cal's apartment (in the dark), realistically, yet somewhat comically. Kate pushes Cal onto a sofa and stands on a table, shaking her backside and spreading her legs before she jumps on him and the scene cuts. No nudity.
