What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this movie has stronger language than indicated by the previews. Nick manipulates the waitress into having sex with him by reading her thoughts. He's apalled to hear her thoughts in bed and find out what a poor lover he is. So he listens to her thoughts and is able to give her an extraordinary experience which leaves her deeply touched. He then forgets all about her until she confronts him a week later. He take the only out he can think of to explain why he had not called her -- he tells her that he's gay.
- Families can talk about whether it is hard for men and women to figure each other out, and how they can do better. They may also want to talk about the pressure Nick's 15-year-old daughter feels to have sex with her 18-year-old boyfriend and how she decides what to do about it. They should also talk about how a small act of kindness can be very important to someone who is coping with depression. (But make sure that children know that clinical depression is a serious illness that cannot be "cured" by a few kind words.)
