What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that The Birder's Guide to Everything is a coming-of-age film with a little bit of sexuality and lots of strong and crude language. Though there's plenty of humor in the movie, the untimely death of the central teen boy's mother is a theme that runs throughout, adding some sadness and grief to the story. There's some very mild flirting and a quick peek at a woman's breast, plus a few drug references.
