What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this film includes comedic references to a terminal illness and some nonexplicit but perhaps mildly worrisome scenes of medical examination (loud machines, doctor's bad news, lack of health insurance). Characters allude to sexual desire and appearances (references to "going down," "ass," "booty," and breasts; soundtrack songs include "Let's Get It On"); women wear swimsuits, towels, and cleavage-revealing clothing; some brief kissing. A couple of characters smoke (cigar and cigarette) and multiple characters drink, one to the point of despairing intoxication, whereupon he sits on a building ledge while others worry he will jump. Characters are deceitful and selfish. Sports activities (snowboarding, base jumping) involve some antic violence. Some profanity.
- Families can talk about Georgia's decision to pursue her dreams -- only after she believes she is about to die. How does she "teach" others who are focused on material success, greed, and reputations to reconsider priorities?
