This story about two aging men dying from cancer, is unlikely to have huge appeal to young audiences—even though it holds some thoughtful messages about life’s priorities. Content concerns include language (a sexual expletive, finger gesture, as well as infrequent mild and moderate profanities), sexual references and innuendos, the portrayal of woman who is likely a prostitute, and a couple of brief, non-explicit comments about sex outside of marriage. One scene shows a woman exiting a man’s bedroom (suggesting a sexual encounter between them), and another has a woman dressed in a sensual nightgown to catch the interest of her husband. The difficulties of chemotherapy are discussed, and a character is seen and heard vomiting. In two other medically related incidents some blood is shown. A character is briefly seen holding a cigarette (implying this is a contributing factor in his cancer diagnosis). Social drinking is also depicted.
