Not Suitable for Children

Comedy Romance


 

A young ladies' man learns his days are numbered to be a father.

This movie has heart, and lots of it. It knits a very serious situation with a bit of cheek, helped largely by the childlike innocence of the lead. Expert direction creates what could realistically have been a full-blown teenage sex romp into something much more subtle and controlled, and there is a beauty in its simplicity, with plenty of unexpected touching moments. No big gags are needed, because the charming story-telling looks after itself. Maybe not suitable for children, but for everyone else, it's a winner.
