What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this movie includes frequent sexual references and some images. While the latter tend to be brief and comic (a woman who works as a maid dresses up as an ooh-la-la French maid to entertain her boyfriend), the language is explicit, frequent, and usually witty, a means for the women characters to express their frustrations and desires (dialogue includes more than 20 f-words, usually used to describe sex). Some characters say cruel or gossipy things to others (a husband tells his wife she has a "fat ass," some friends say one woman's husband is "gay"). Characters drink wine, beer, and liquor in social situations; Olivia smokes pot in her bedroom and with her boyfriend. Olivia repeatedly calls her ex, a married man.
- Families can talk about the ways that money affects relationships: How does it create expectations, tensions, and insecurities? How does Olivia's resistance to making or having lots of money like her friends make her an object of pity or concern? How do the women provide support for each other even when they might be mad at each other? How do they cope with depression or disappointment?
