What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this movie is suited to older audiences as it draws on the musical comedy tradition of the past. It has the same cheerful air of innocence, but it deals with more the adult issues of relationships and sex, but these ideas are presented in a Allen's neurotic manner. There are a few very mild swear words for emphasis and one strong profanity in the context of a hip hop show. There is some onscreen drinking.
- Families can talk about the family featured in the film, a loving collection of eccentrics. How do individuals make their place in a large group? How can a family develop the same closeness and equality that the Berlin/Dundridge family has? Families can also discuss the relationship between Joe Berlin and Von Sidell. Is Joe right to use what he knows about Von to woo her? Does it make either of them happy?
