parent's guide

February 02, 2007


Rating -- PG-13

What it's about -- A smothering mother tries to choose the right man for her daughter and meddles when the daughter can't seem to agree on Mr. Right.

The Kid Attractor Factor -- Mandy Moore, in a more adult role, pursued by Gabriel Macht and Tom Everett Scott.

Good lessons/bad lessons -- Sometimes, it takes a blowtorch to cut those apron strings.

Violence -- None.

Language -- Reasonably clean.

Sex -- More than you might expect, and somewhat explicit.

Drugs -- None, unless wine and the odd snifter of brandy count.

Parents advisory -- If they're old enough to date, they're old enough to see it. Good luck talking a teenage boy into seeing it, though.
