we took our 10 year old to see it. There is a scene where two of the characters are drinking (no one does anything stupid), one that alludes to sex (a jacket comes off and the roll on the bed clothed a bit) and some language. But we felt comfortable taking him to see it. We are big music and Beatles fans!!
We didn't take him to see Rocketman...that is too much for him.

Fun Little Movie with Great Music
I saw this movie with my sons, ages almost 12 and 14. It was a creative premise for a movie--definitely appealing to kids and a good way to introduce them to some classic music at the same time. There were interesting moral topics to discuss afterward --particularly regarding the emotional effects that "the big lie" had on the main character and also how the older couple/Beatles fans who knew about it had a different take on it, for the sake of preserving history. Overall, an enjoyable feel good movie.

GREAT movie but has LOTS of kissing at the end and BAD LANGUAGE such as s***, son of a b****, a**, and a cut off on mother f***. Includes one scary and violent scene when Jack is riding his bike and then gets hit by a huge bus. Also has a lot of drinking and a great movie for teenagers.
Very pronounced GD and long awkward moment discussing if they would sleep together. Of course the music is wonderful but definitely better hearing the Beatles. Parts of it dragged out but overall ok. We would have been fine to sit this one out or watch on demand later.
We watched this with my 12 year old and she enjoyed it, although I had to explain a few references to her. The movie itself is fine for that age but there is one deleted scene where they show the main character waking up in bed with a woman. He jumps up and runs into the bathroom and they show his bare butt. Oops! My daughter was super embarrassed but it was kind of funny. Anyway we learned our lesson to watch out for deleted scenes!
I love that ed sheeran was in this movie! and think its a perfectly fine movie for teens to watch there are some scenes that you might be worried about your teen/child seeing like drinking (no one does anything dumb) and in a different scene the characters briefly talking about if they would sleep together but I think that its appropriate for 13+ i would watch it before you let a young child see it just to approve. overall great movie romantic, very funny, cute, and I loved the music I will definitely watch it again!

Surprisingly good movie!
A fun movie with good music. Certainly a romantic (ultimately) movie with a nice mix of humor. Nicely put together and well acted. I thought Ed Sheehan was pretty much going to be a limited speaking cameo, but he played a larger role than expected. Thought he did well, and with a little more experience, he could probably be successful acting. The implausible plot seems reasonable. I didn’t even notice the mild swearing. And there was nothing I’d worry about the kids seeing. I’d recommend it for a fun family movie!
Really enjoyed this. A feel good movie. Obviously very surreal - I mean, how could the Beatles just disappear from history? But in our fame hungry age has a good message - that it's people and relationships that count, not fame and money. Kids should be OK with it as no real swearing or sex scenes. Just one point - it might be lost on kids who don't remember the Beatles. But for my generation it was nostalgia.
I took my two early 20s daughters to this film. It was so refreshing to see a non-super-hero movie. It was incredibly well done. Lots of emotions. Funny!!!!!!! Good taste. Nice to see a PG-13 comedy that isn’t crass. Thank you Working Title and Universal Pictures for funding this beautiful film. Long live The Beatles!!!!
