Awkward, unfunny, and not meant for kids.

what parents need to know

Parents need to know that this film's premise has a young woman sleeping with a man whom she believes might be her father. Though he insists this is physically impossible, she worries about it more than once. Characters drink and smoke repeatedly (stereotypical signs of decadence).

what families can talk about

  • Families can talk about Sarah's consistently bad decisions concerning her fianc, her family, and her one-night stand. Though she says she's "scared," how does her "search for herself" end up hurting other people? How would Sarah's entire situation be different if only she had talked with her father first?
