CELESTE & JESSE FOREVER is a romantic comedy drama about a couple who have separated but are still close friends. The film focusses on the difficulties they face when they try to move on and form new relationships. It was rated 15 for strong language, sex references and drug use.

There is frequent strong language throughout the film, as well as some strong verbal sex references. These include including characters referring to a band called 'F*** Your Mom' and a song called 'Do It On My Face'. There are also some scenes showing characters building up to having sex with each other. In the strongest of these scenes, we see Celeste lying down and kissing a man, then realising to her horror that he is masturbating with his hand down the front of his jeans. There is, however, no nudity in this scene and the tone is comic rather than erotic.

There are some scenes in which characters use cannabis, either smoking joints or smoking from a bong. Although the drug use is not specifically condemned and is presented as a normal part of the characters' lives, the film as a whole does not promote drug use and there is no useful instructional detail. Drug use is not a major focus on the film.

No-one younger than 15 may see a 15 rated film in the cinema. No-one younger than 15 may rent or buy a 15 rated video or DVD.
