If you're concerned about sexual topics..

These are the things you might want to have a heads up about:
Thong bathing suit and woman bends over wearing it
Multiple comments about "doing it"
Teenage boy looking at "dirty magazine" and makes a comment about tits
Male character talks about "phone sex" and says "I got horny"
Two characters kissing in bed unclothed (covered by sheets) and the female says "was it like this every time ?"

It was a little much for my 11 year old. Other than that it was language here and there and a funny movie.

There are a lot of sex in this movie

My mom thought that we would be okay watching this movie, until they are in bed. We all had to close our eyes. It was very disturbing. This movie is not for kids. Watch this movie with clear play.

I'm shocked it didn't get a five stars from everyone. I chose to record the movie from a t.v. channel that edits out foul language and inappropriate material. Even with bits and pieces removed, It's by far my favorite chick, and I've seen many. BTW, I saw a Good Morning America show where the women recited many of the best known lines in the movie! That says a lot!

A butt. Language. And other unpleasant things. Otherwise, it was a nice story.
