Raunchy 80s Movie

Basically you should give all movies made in the 80s and 90s a quick rewatch before showing your children, but, this one is pretty tame for the period, and was actually advertised as a family film, some of the jokes don’t age very well. I wouldn’t say that there is too much sexual content in the movie, but, it is definitely present, the opening and closing scenes depict comical representations of sperm making its way to fertilize an egg. There are multiple scenes with implied sex, or heavy petting, there is no full nudity, but Julie us seen wearing only a bra a couple of times. The language is pretty coarse for a PG-13 rating, there isn’t swearing in every scene, but it is frequent enough to upset some viewers. As far as drinking and drugs go, this is a 90s movie, so many characters are seen smoking. There is also a scene towards the beginning of the film during the childbirth scene, the medication given to Julie appears to make Mikey high while still in the womb.
