Your Place or Mine is a fun, light-hearted rom-com with a sensational cast and a sweet storyline. Wondering what the age recommendation is for Netflix’s Your Place or Mine? I’m breaking down all of the thematic elements, including its PG-13 rating, in my Your Place or Mine Parents Guide and Movie Review. Here’s what parents need to know to help YOU decide if it’s kid-friendly. As always, no spoilers!
Your Place or Mine Parents Guide + Review
What do you get when you combine Reese Witherspoon and Ashton Kutcher with a side of Jesse Williams? That’s simple…a deliciously fun romantic comedy arriving just in time for Valentine’s Day!
It’s the season of love, and I cannot think of a better way to celebrate than kicking it off with streaming Your Place or Mine on Netflix.
It’s no secret that rom-com’s are often thought of as a cliche genre, lacking substance and all telling the same story. However, I think that’s why we love rom-com’s so much! Who doesn’t like a feel-good story? Who doesn’t want to believe in happily ever after? Sometimes we need the light and airy theme that doesn’t require us to think too hard. Sometimes we just want something to make us smile and feel good! Your Place or Mine does exactly that, and that’s why it’s such a great watch.
Reese Witherspoon plays the character of “Debbie.” She’s a single mom, known for always playing it safe and being overprotective to the extreme of her son, Jack. Ashton Kutcher is Debbie’s best friend, Peter. Peter is a wild card. He’s single, rich, has a commitment phobia, and a recovering alcoholic.
It’s very evident that Debbie and Peter care for each other, however, neither of them seem to realize just how much. The two of them switch places for a week (Debbie travels to NYC for a class and Peter heads to LA to watch her son). During this time, they both discover so much about themselves, and how they feel for one another.
Of course there’s a twist somewhere in there, and I will say that it partly involves Jesse Williams’s character, Theo. You’ll just have to watch it yourself to find out!
Is Your Place or Mine Kid-Friendly? Here’s Your Parents Guide:
Netflix’s Your Place or Mine has an MPA rating of PG-13 for suggestive material and brief strong language. It has a runtime of 1 hour 53 minutes. While the movie starts off a bit slow, once it gets going you’ll be hooked right in!
Being a romantic comedy, Your Place or Mine will not appeal to children, however, I do see teenagers being interested. Here’s what parents need to know about Your Place or Mine.
The profanity is mostly kept to a few $hits, @sshole, d@mn, suck, and one use of butthole. They did manage to throw in the one F Bomb that are allowed in PG-13 films.
Your Place or Mine doesn’t have any violence.
There are a few sex scenes in Your Place or Mine, but they’re not too detailed. Debbie’s son, Jack, doesn’t have many friends and is ignored by his peers. There is brief mention of drugs and porn. Characters drink alcohol in the movie, and Peter is a recovering alcoholic. It’s mentioned that he has gone to rehab two times.
Your Place or Mine is not intended for children. I would feel comfortable allowing my 13 year old to watch this movie, but I don’t think he would enjoy it. I would say it’s safe for ages 13 and up…you know your children best! With that being said, Your Place or Mine is made for people like me…and I’m 1000% here for it!
Netflix hit the jackpot with Your Place or Mine. It’s the perfect movie to kick off Valentine’s Day weekend, or just if you want to watch something that will make you smile. It checks all the boxes of a successful rom-com. Reese Witherspoon is always a delight to watch onscreen, and I must say, she has some great chemistry with BOTH Ashton Kutcher and Jesse Williams. Lucky girl! Your Place or Mine will make you believe in second chances, not just in love, but in life. Streaming on Netflix February 10. 2023.
