Clean Hollywood movie. Thank you Sandra, Channing and Brad!

Great old fashioned family movie with no huge agenda push. I see others commenting on that saying sex talk but I'm fairly conservative and they were more euphemisms then literal graphic discussions. Physicality read from romance novel is very sensual but I don't get as uncomfortable with that as to me it's positive touching talk and desire rather than body part crass casual sex talk. Further, in that scene she's applying stuff on his back and he's looking away not at her, not sexually I took my tweens to see it and had a great time. No swearing. Only implied violence- no gruesome deaths so common these days in other movies. The only thing I discussed with my kids was how rude hurtful the main character is towards a man who cares deeply for her. I pointed out that our family doesn’t normalize that even if the movies do. It was a really fun movie and I hadn’t seen something so clean and family friendly in forever!

Very funny and entertaining, but not in the “family friendly” category

Very funny film for older teens and adults! Intentionally cheesy and silly. Not “family-friendly”, though. Several sex jokes and male nudity. Some swearing (d*** is said several times). Very little alcohol consumption and violence. We would recommend for the 14+ crowd.
