What parents need to know

Parents need to know that this romantic dramedy about a marriage counselor trying to save her own relationship as well as that of her parents isn't too likely to appeal to tweens and young teens, despite the fact that Kellan Lutz (of the Twilight movies) and Mandy Moore star. The subject matter is a bit mature -- including discussions of affairs and allusions to strip clubs -- and the pacing is slow. There's also some drinking, light swearing, and loud arguing.
