Parents need to know that much of the humor in Holidate, which stars '90s romcom queen Julia Roberts' niece Emma Roberts, turns on sexual encounters and heavy drinking. The characters, including secondary, are ultimately decent people who care for one another. There's frank discussion of body parts ("vagina," "clitoris," "cock," "t-ts," "boobs," "ass") and reference to sexual positions and practices ("hand job," "cookie licking," "porn," "back door," oral sex, "cum in my mouth," sexting). The film plays on some gender stereotypes, including women trying to trap a man into marriage before he's ready, and discussion of a man's stamina and a woman's drive to procreate. The main characters drink, often heavily, on all of their holiday dates, resulting in one-night stands and memory fails, including one morning where they can't recall if they've had sex the night before. In another scene, men are drunkenly shooting off fireworks and one loses a finger. A group has trouble finding a sober driver in an emergency. Characters smoke pot in a car and a hospital ER room, and the female lead smokes occasional cigarettes. There's swearing and language throughout, including "f--k," "s--t," and "bitch." Despite scenes in a mall and of buying and returning presents, wealth and consumerism aren't a main theme.
