Very charming movie with Relationship themes

The characters are all very charming in a way that only movies can created them. Kids watching this movie should be ready to hear about having sex with a condom (in passing) and the acknowledgment that sex is a goal of dating and marriage. My kids were shocked that the boy was home alone with a girl in his room with the door closed. Sweet movie, but kids should be mature enough to hear discussions of sex and relationships.

A Funny and Light-Hearted Comedy for the Family...

SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE is a light-hearted comedy for the family, not surprisingly trans-generational and exceptionally family-friendly. In fact, this is one of the best comedies you can watch with your kids, and it's a chick flick that will appeal to guys too. There are two curse words "d**n" and "s**t". There are also a couple of innuendos as well (Orgasms and condoms are briefly and nongraphically mentioned, and brief reference is made to "getting laid".) That's all I can think of that's objectionable in the film. The acting is great, and kids will appreciate the humor as much as adults. This is a sweet family movie that anyone can enjoy.

Sweet Romance, but Be Advised!

Meg Ryan and her boyfriend are shown to be Cohabitating. Implies that sex and living together before marriage is A-okay. Another draw back for child viewers and major talking point for teens. This in addition to Tom's reference to "getting laid" and brief bragging about how many women he's slept with.

NOT FOR KIDS! But fine for teenagers

A great film, but I would not recommend this to kids at all. It is totally not appropriate for anyone under the age of say..14?

For tender-hearted kids

Kids with the romantic side will enjoy this movie. Call it a 'chick flick' if you will, but it IS all about a guy and a girl that 'belong' together and his son trying to figure out how to hook them up. The conniving is fun, kind of on the lines of Parent Trap. Tom Hanks is in his element. A great movie that the whole family should enjoy.

Good clean fun

This is Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan at their easy going best. The movie is about finding your one true love, at a time when you need it to happen the most. The movie may be implausible, it may be too lighthearted, but the performances make up for all that. You know how it's going to end up, yet you don't care. The fun is watching to two great actors act and some very good dialoge. If you ever dreamed about what it's like to find true love, this is it.

Good movie but older kids will understand it better.

Younger kids may not understand this movie fully. It has a lot of stuff about divorce.

A little risqué for a PG rating.

I watched this movie with my mom and I was shocked at how much sexual innuendo and references were in it. The fact that it's PG really angers me because of the heavy sex-related dialogue. Definitely not for children strictly for teens and adults mostly 14+.
