What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this movie includes a number of poop jokes. Lots of silly slapstick: The heroine falls into art (a pile of mud), falls off a ladder, and the hero is hit by a cab. Several characters are ruthlessly selfish and snobbish, and they lie and cheat one another. Women wear close-fitting, sometimes ridiculous outfits. A gypsy fortune teller is troublingly stereotypical. Characters drink, sometimes to drunkenness.
- Families can talk about the concept of luck: Is it a function of chance or fate? How does it affect hope and ambition? How does the gypsy fortune teller both legitimize and make ridiculous the premise of luck (or fate, as these might be related)?
