What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Girl Most Likely is a dramedy that's heavier on the comedy than the drama, though the plotlines are pretty heavy and include an attempted suicide (faked), a nervous breakdown, parental abandonment, and the like. Expect some colorful language (mostly "s--t" and "hell"), heavy drinking and drunkenness, and some scenes showing couples making out heavily, as well as plenty of innuendo. There's also some gun violence; it's mostly played for laughs, but shots are fired.
