Romantic and entertaining -- for older teens.

what parents need to know

Parents need to know that the movie's R rating comes from some very strong language, sexual references and sexual situations, including prostitutes and adultery, and humorous nudity. A character's history of sex, drugs, and rock and roll is played for humor. There are some tense and sad scenes. Some audience members may object to the portrayal of the American President (Billy Bob Thornton) as a crude bully. One of the movie's many strengths is its matter-of-fact portrayal of loving inter-racial friendship and romance.

An amazing ensemble pulls of a movie that if it were anyone else I prob would not like. I am a sucker for a good funny romantic movie and this one had everything. Incredible acting makes this a winner.

Watching Professor Snape falling for a young woman is something right? Speaking of reality, this is what life is. It reflects people's life so well. The starting was boring. I thought I just got another movie to inspire myself to die. But I was pleasantly wrong. This movie was absolutely heart touching. I've never thought or noticed what happens in the airport. There was some good laughs in it. And also eye watering moments. Life can be weird and complicated. So is love.
