What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that The Broken Hearts Gallery is a romantic comedy executive-produced by Selena Gomez. It's edgy but not explicit, and it's completely in step with the way real young adults speak, behave, and interact. That includes some strong language ("bitch," "s--t," etc.), sex-positive attitudes, and jokes about drugs, drinking, and sex (one including a sex toy). As far as actual sex scenes, there's only one, and it takes place mostly after the fact, with the couple in question talking while covered by sheets. Characters drink frequently in social situations (mostly whiskey and wine), and the plot kicks into gear when lead character Lucy (Geraldine Viswanathan) drinks too much at a work event after being warned by a co-worker to slow down. The film offers a wide range of diversity in its characters -- something that's too often been scarce in mainstream romcoms -- and focuses on taking a healthy approach to romance, promoting the value of communication and trust. It also emphasizes the value of strong, supportive friendships among women and models powerful self-acceptance.
