What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that The Oranges hits some interesting notes about life, marriage, and more, but much of the material may be too heavy for younger teens. The plot centers around an adult who falls for his best friend's daughter, who happens to have been his own daughter's childhood pal. There isn't any nudity (though viewers do hear the sounds of a sex toy in use), but the situations between them are cringe-worthy. There's some swearing ("f--k," "s--t," etc.) and drinking, and a twentysomething woman is shown smoking pot.
