What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that About Last Night is a hilarious remake of the 1986 classic, based on a David Mamet play, that trades in mature sexual themes: one-night stands, relationship woes, breakups, infidelity, friends with benefits, and more. Men and women freely discuss sex acts with friends; one character makes sexist jokes. Expect lots of swearing (from the fairly tame "moron" to various permutations of the F-word) and hard-core drinking and one scene with people getting stoned, plus sex scenes that don't show breasts, backsides, or genitals, but definitely imply specific acts.
- Families can talk about the film's take on hooking up, relationships, and breakups? Does it add anything new to the conversation?
- How does the movie portray friendship? What makes them great friendships (or not)? Do they trade on stereotypes of men and women?
