What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Family Weekend delivers a simple and important message about parents who realize too late that ignoring their children can signficantly damage their family. That said, the takeaway is packaged in a comedy/drama that centers on teenage Emily, who drives it home with some pretty questionable methods: She drugs her mom and dad, ties them to chairs, and spends two days trying to teach them the error of their ways. There's some violence (the tying up, someone getting hit over the head), some sexual references (including a character who collects both gay and straight porn magazines), and moderate swearing (including "f--k" and "s--t"), a character smoking a joint in one scene, and a meal with some unusually potent wine.
