Sexual Content: The movie contains some mild sexual innuendo, along with scenes of kissing and embracing. Some back nudity is seen when a couple removes their shirts and embrace. Sexual activity is implied.

Language: The script includes one muffled used of a strong sexual expletive in a non-sexual context along with infrequent scatological slang and mild profanities.
