First of all, this movie wasn't rated R. When we went to pick it up at the video store, the guy said it was 14A, and sure enough, when I checked the back of the box, it was. My mom, 11 year old sister and I got it because we thought it would be a funny rom-com type movie, which it didn't turn out to be, but it covered some important issues, especially divorce and infiedelity. There are some drugs, including characters smoking a joint, but nothing you don't see at my high school. My mom covered my sister's eyes at some points, but it was nothing I hadn't seen, nor heard. The ending was dissapointing and sad though . . .
