Sex And Nudity

This movie contains mild sexual content and nudity. You will encounter characters having sex, but there is little to no detail and no nudity in this scene.

On top of that there are characters using sexual language as well as some characters wearing tight and revealing clothes. But beside that there is really nothing in this film that can be considered extremely sexual.

Violence And Gore

Profane Language

There is mild profanity in this movie. Some of this bad language includes using God’s name in vain and several other words that are considered to be inappropriate for younger viewers. 

Substance Abuse

This movie contains several scenes where smoking and drinking occurs. For example the main character Sam drunks while he is on a plane. On top of that there are scenes at a local rehabilitation meeting that references drinking.

Aside from that there are scenes that involve drinking in a bar and some characters smoking weed. 

Frightening Or Intense Scenes

This movie is not really frightening but the undertone of the movie itself carries an intense subject matter which may be upsetting for some viewers. 

Our Opinion

This movie is very well-made. The story is intricately done and the way that it tackles such a heavy subject like death is really amazing.

It is a comedy drama, so there are meant to be funny moments with the undertone of death and restoring family work wonderfully together to create a really well put together movie.
