Pretty good watch.

This movie wasn't bad. I mainly watched for Rachel McAdams who did a wonderful job playing one of the soldiers on her way back home from Iraq. She meets two other men and together they share a van to all return to their destinations. Each character has issues of their own, they help each other solve them along the way which makes their friendships stronger in the end. A very laid back road trip movie with great characters played by a great cast. Language is strong with plenty of curse words including the f-word. Violence has arguing of a married couple with loud yelling, a close-up bullet wound, a fight scene at a bar, injured soldiers and lots of bickering and complaining. Sexual content has a character having sexual issues after getting shot in the thigh, lots of talk about sex stuff, guy looks for prostitutes to see if they can "cure" him, a married woman goes to bed with a man right after meeting (moaning sounds heard) her husband walks in, sexual remarks throughout. Plenty of drinking. Pretty safe for the 16+ crowd I think.
