What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this indie romantic dramedy set in New York -- which was written and directed by star Josh Radnor of TV's How I Met Your Mother -- focuses on three young couples, each of whom is having some kind of relationship trouble. Teens may or may not be interested in the love woes of older characters, but most of the content is age appropriate for mature teenagers: There are several uses of "f--k" (the main reason for the movie's R rating), plus some drinking, flirting, and kissing (anything more intimate is implied rather than shown).
- Families can talk about what the movie is saying about love and relationships. Are any of these couples in healthy relationships? Why or why not? What's important to you in a relationship?
- Do you consider these characters role models? Teens: What do you think your life will be like when you're the age of the characters in this movie?
