What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this movie, while primarily a comedy, has some scary and violent moments. The scalping scene is pretty grisly. The movie also has strong language and sexual situations.
- Families can talk about how Betty learned that she could solve her own problems and follow her real dream of becoming a nurse. Betty's husband describes the soap opera fans as "people with no lives watching each other's fake lives." Is that true of anyone who watches any television show or movie, including the people who watch this one? Is there a difference between watching for escape and watching for entertainment or insight? Why would Betty stay with such an awful husband for so long? Were any other characters chasing dreams? Who?
