This movie is about a middle aged man who decides to go back to college after losing his job. He has few options and finds himself with not much to do on his free days. He soon finds other outcasts and others who have failed in their past. He finds a place to fit in among the misfits. This family movie review finds this to be an adult movie with adult themes.

They run around town on scooters. Larry develops a crush on a professor who is in a marriage who is going nowhere and feels bored with her teaching job. Both of them find a reason to live together. This movie is about family relationships that are falling apartäó_ and it makes it look like the right thing to do. This movie is about downtrodden adults and how they cope with life by sticking together.

In terms of child appropriateness, a comment about unbuttoning someoneäó»s clothes is not considered to be the best for little ones for preteens. There are some scenes of sexual content. The MPAA calls it a PG 13, but this family guide to the movies considers it on the verge of an R. There are drinking and cocktails being mixed. It makes light of the sexual content in the affair between the professor and the main character. It does not formally meet the criteria of the higher rankings, but due to these thematic elements that are persistent throughout the movie it is not recommended for children.

This parental guide to the movies has to consider this one to be an adult theme and an adult situation. Even though they do not technically cross a line for becoming an R, it is still not recommended for teens and definitely not for those younger than that. Like many movies that were geared towards adults, they probably would not understand it and would not like it anyway.
