SEX/NUDITY 5 - Lots of sexual innuendo, including jokes about and references
to masturbation, cyber sex, sodomy and oral sex. We see a married couple kissing
passionately in the kitchen; he takes off her shirt, we see her in her bra, and then we
see the man's bare backside as he walks away. In two quick flashback scenes, we see a
couple making love in bed and taking a bubble bath together, but in both scenes we see
only their bare shoulders.
VIOLENCE/GORE 2 - Many scenes of a couple yelling at each other. We see a
woman giving birth, and the newborn baby is covered in blood and fluids. A man hits a
woman with a ping-pong ball.
PROFANITY 7 - About 20 F-words, many anatomical references, some
scatological references and many mild obscenities. [profanity glossary]
DISCUSSION TOPICS - Love, marriage, divorce, sex, infidelity, parenting, loyalty,
MESSAGE - Marriage is difficult, but if the good times outweigh the bad,
then by all means stick together (especially if kids are involved).
