What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this surprisingly wise comedy, while hilarious (though not in a showy, Hangover-esque way), addresses some mature themes, including infidelity, incarceration, and job boundaries. Swearing abounds (including plenty of "f--k"s), and some scenes are quite sexually charged, including one that shows a character at the beginning of a threesome. Most of the nudity is somewhat indirect -- viewable from the side or the back, in brief slices -- but plenty of action is implied, and there's some frank talk as well. A couple of scenes involve marijuana.
- Families can talk about Ned and his sisters. How would you characterize their relationships? Do they seem authentic and believable? How do they compare to family members you've seen in other movies?
- What are the movie's messages about family and relationships?
- Parents, talk to your kids about how Ned approaches life. Does it work for him? Why?
