Romantic Comedy: A number of twenty-somethings navigate sex, love, loss, and life in modern-day New York City.
Alice (DAKOTA JOHNSON) moved from her parents' house to a university dorm and then into an apartment with her boyfriend, Josh (NICHOLAS BRAUN). After four years together and having just graduated from college, Alice decides she wants to try being single in New York City just for the experience and convinces Josh to put their relationship on hiatus. She moves in with her career-driven older sister, Meg (LESLIE MANN); quickly makes friends with the promiscuous party girl, Robin (REBEL WILSON); has a one-night stand with bartender and confirmed bachelor, Tom (ANDERS HOLM); and gets into a nice, tender relationship with widower and young father, David (DAMON WAYANS Jr.)

Meanwhile, Meg has decided to get pregnant via a sperm donor. But then she meets her young dream guy, Ken (JAKE LACY), and keeps her condition from him. Tom, meanwhile, begins to develop real feelings for the first time in his life. Her name is Lucy (ALISON BRIE), a neurotic blogger who ends up getting into a committed relationship herself with stable, steady bookstore manager, George (JASON MANTZOUKAS).

It all comes to a head at Alice's rooftop birthday party, where Robin invites a now-engaged Josh along with both Tom and David. Lucy is also there and is now also engaged, to George. And Meg's water breaks and has to be rushed to the hospital by Alice and Robin.

Older teens may have some interest due to its young cast, Rebel Wilson of "Pitch Perfect," and its raunchy content.
For sexual content and strong language throughout.

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!!!
