My mom thinks differently

My mom lets me watch stuff that’s R, but she seemed to think it was really inappropriate. Honestly, it is. But even though I’m 13, I’ve heard all of this (and worse) before. Most teens have to. Let them watch this.

This title has:

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

Great movie! Good for pre-teens and teens!

I think that this movie is a great movie first and foremost . And I think that it has a lot of positive good things in it. Their are are some things that include drugs or swears or even just having a glass of wine. But I think as long as you watch the movie with your child or teenager it will be fine. To me completely honest my twins ( Anna and Mateo ) ( age: 12 ) are exposed to stuff like that allready like at school the kids are constantly talking about that stuff. I think that this movie is a really good example of what you want your life to look like and to give kids a glimpse of what your life could be or what is could also be. I think that you should definitely watch this with your kids. I think that maybe 12 and up is a good age. I think that it also has a lot of positive role models in it. And also for all the parents out their reading this review it is a really great movie.
