Get Our Full Review


Will Hayes (Ryan Reynolds) is a dad with some tough questions to answer. In order to help his daughter Maya (Abigail Breslin) understand why he is getting a divorce, he definitely needs to tell the precocious ten-year-old all about his life and former loves (Elizabeth Banks, Isla Fisher and Rachel Weisz). And maybe her youthful, uncluttered vision can help him see some solutions to his adult problems.

Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in Definitely, Maybe...

With the divorce papers on his desk, Will Hays is about to end yet another unsuccessful relationship. Detailing the events of his former life to his daughter Maya, he confesses his past sexual relationships to the youngster, using derogatory slang, descriptive terms and frank discussion about sexual activity and single parenthood. Maya repeatedly uses anatomically correct terminology to describe intercourse. Newscasts detailing Bill Clinton’s sexual activities in office are also shown. Frequent drinking at home and social gatherings are depicted along with drunken behavior. Main characters, as well as others, regularly use cigarettes although some negative comments are made about the habit. Profanities, vulgar expressions and some scatological slang are also included in the script.
