Parents need to know that this feel-good movie’s adherence to positive themes like honesty, communication, personal responsibility, and family unity makes it a great choice for families. The main characters deceive those around them for personal gain, but their uneasiness with their actions illustrates how detrimental dishonesty can be on relationships of all kinds. There are plenty of good role models to be found here, and their ability to work through their troubles (marital woes, the recent loss of a family member, etc.) has good messages for all ages. Since most of the movie’s humor relates to Mark and Annie’s efforts to keep up the ruse of their relationship, some laughs will go over young kids’ heads, but if you can get your tweens and teens to watch with you, it’s a good starting point for conversations about issues that face your own family.
