A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this movie.
The main character learns that trust and open, honest communication are essential for any relationship. It's important to believe that you're good enough for someone else, and you can't expect people to be perfect but should instead accept them for who they are.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Lovesick is a romantic comedy about Charlie Darby (Matt LeBlanc), a man who doesn't know that when he falls in love, a psychotic reaction is triggered. Despite that, there isn't any violence to worry about, but adults do drink in social settings and there's a fair bit of swearing (including variations of "f--k," "s--t," "bitch," and "ass"). Characters aren't shown having sex -- except for a cartoon drawing at the beginning of the movie -- but they do kiss, and Charlie has an older neighbor who likes to discuss and watch porn in Charlie's apartment (nothing graphic is visible on screen, but moans can be heard). And one of Charlie's terrible rebound dates shoves her hands down her pants while sitting on his couch.

Is It Any Good?
Director Luke Matheny begins his quirky romantic comedy parody by defining "lovesick" as being "so deeply affected by love as to be unable to act normally." As his protagonist moves from a charming gentleman to a "crazy in love" stalker, viewers can't help but laugh as each of Charlie's imaginative scenarios become more elaborate than before -- bike rides with the bellhop turn into romantic Tuscan getaways with Dr. Oz. The dramatic soundtrack also adds to the slapstick humor, especially when other characters mistake Charlie's extremely jealous and paranoid behavior for grand romantic gestures.
Viewers might also think twice, or possibly recognize some of their own social media habits, after watching Charlie's obsessive lurking on Molly's online profile end up causing him to constantly doubt their relationship. While Lovesick doesn't tell us whether Charlie overcomes his psychosis, it does remind us that we can all get a little lovesick without trust and communication in our relationships.
