Way too much alcohol

Watched this with my 10 and 8 year old. They thought it was fine. But I thought there was WAAAAAY more alcohol than is appropriate for a family movie. We have beer in the house most days, and my husband and I will have one or two after dinner, so we’re not against drinking in general. But I feel like there was drinking in every other scene, blatant drunkenness in several. A good movie should only include details that add something to the story. So what was the point of adding so much alcohol? There is even a scene where the main character’s son is asked to help bartend. Inappropriate. There were several curse words, but none of them too terrible.
