Expected more from it.

The movie was good, but I was expecting more of a heartwarming drama. It was a bit bland and I was surprised by the amount of sexual stuff throughout..didn't realize it was rated R. It should have been 4 stars out of five for the sex, not two like Commonsense suggests. Lots of sexual remarks including more than one use of the word "va*ina", a weird couple appear highly sexual who explains their thoughts on how it's fine to sleep with your partner with kids in the room...etc, sexy dancing, an oral sex scene with a couple in bed, breast-feeding older children...etc. Language is a huge issue, LOTS of profanity and curse words including tons of f-words and sh*t along with other explicit words. Quite a bit of drinking socially. The film is funny and somewhat enjoyable, but also drags on in some scenes and becomes boring. Only a couple characters were pretty likable, but overall good acting and worth watching if you're over the age of the 15/16 mark.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
