This comedy makes light of sex, childbearing, paternity, and parental responsibility. The theme of the entire movie involves procreation. You might want to consider that if you see this one with the kids, you may have to be prepared to explain topics in the movie that you are not prepared to divulge at this time in your child's development. They are certain to have a few questions after this one. There is some drug material and adult language in the movie. There is a person getting punched too. However, it is the sexual content and theme of the movie that gained this one a Parental Guide to the Movies word of caution.
This movie is not meant to be a kids movie. Perhaps, older teens that are already aware of the topics in the movie may enjoy it, but this is definitely not for the younger ones. Every child and family is different in regards to what age is considered appropriate for topics about where babies come from, and you will have to decide what is right in your situation. This movie is a situation comedy that takes a look at the foibles of sperm banks and donors, but it might not be right for your entire family.
