One of the struggles of having an almost teenage daughter is deciding on movies she can watch. Often she comes to me with a PG-13 movie in mind and I look it up on Common Sense Media, a website for parents by parents reviewing and evaluating the appropriateness of movies for kids. Most often when looking up the movie, I come across a variation of the synopsis below:
Parents need to know that this romantic comedy has many of the ingredients we've come to expect from Adam Sandler movies: crass, juvenile humor, including plenty of scatological humor and jokes at the expense of the overweight or physically imperfect. Swearing is pretty infrequent but does include "s--t," and there are plenty of sexist jokes and pratfalls. There’s also a fair amount sexual innuendo, at times around children, as well as drinking and references to a character’s over-reliance on prescription drugs.
