Slighly Depressing for young ones, Really depressing for older ones. Was rated PG in the 80's, HA

Norman Thayer Jr. and his wife Ethyll have had a rocky relationship with their daughter Chelsea but agree to keep Chelsea's boyfriend's son, Billy for a month while Chelsea and her boyfriend go to Europe. This movie was made in the 1980's and was rated PG but has the content for a mild PG-13 movie. Talks about sex, skinny dipping and even the 13-year old use bulls--t repeatedly. Good message for dysfunctional families.

Moving and Well-Acted, but HEAVY on the Language...

ON GOLDEN POND really is a cute, charming story, and it is perfect for adult and teen entertainment. However, just because it has a moving, family-friendly story doesn't mean it has moving, family-friendly content. Aside from a brief, awkward conversation about whether a father-in-law wants his daughter and her beau to sleep together (the father plays dumb and makes the fiance uncomfortable), there isn't any sexual content. A cut on the head makes up the violence category. Doesn't sound that bad so far, does it? Well, besides those two mild areas, there is a constant stream of profanity in the film. Even if I had bothered to keep track (which would have been very difficult), I would have come up with 40+ instances each of "d**n", "a*s", "h*ll", and "s**t". Sure, there are no F-words, but profanity probably makes up 1/3 of the dialogue in this film. Don't say you weren't warned.
