QUICK TAKE:
Drama: Numerous teens and their parents have difficulties connecting with each other in the real world the more they become "connected" to each other on the Internet and in the virtual world.
PLOT:
In a Texas suburb, multiple characters and their teenage offspring have problems connecting with each other in the real world, the more they become connected to the virtual world via social media, the Internet, mobile phones, and so forth. Don (ADAM SANDLER), a married father of two, is addicted to Internet pornography and hires a hooker to satisfy his sexual cravings. His wife, Helen (ROSEMARIE DeWITT), craves intimacy and pursues an affair with a married man via a related website. Their teenage son, Chris (TRAVIS TROPE), has been surfing Internet porn since he was 10 and can't achieve an erection in real life with the cheerleader of his dreams, Hannah (OLIVIA CROCICCHIA).

Hannah, meanwhile, dreams of being a music or TV star. Her mother, Donna (JUDY GREER), dreams that, too, and has launched a website featuring provocative pictures of the girl in hopes that it will attract a modeling agency or Hollywood talent scout. She becomes involved with Kent (DEAN NORRIS), whose wife recently left him for another man and he has been having a hard time picking up the pieces with his teenage son, Tim (ANSEL ELGORT).

Tim has quit the football team and become obsessed with the virtual identity he has created in the online, role-playing video-gaming community. He has one connection in the real world, and that's with Brandy (KAITLYN DEVER) whose overly protective mom, Patricia (JENNIFER GARNER), monitors her every movement both online and offline. Their mutual friend, Allison (ELENA KAMPOURIS), has an eating disorder and goes on websites and chat rooms to connect with people who give her dangerous tips on how to stay thin -- all under the nose of her clueless father (J.K. SIMMONS).

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Teenagers will have some interest due to so much of the focus being on high school-age characters.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
For strong sexual content including graphic dialogue throughout - some involving teens, and for language.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
