PLAYING IT COOL is a US comedy drama about a screenwriter who struggles to produce a romcom script because he's never truly been in love.

Language

There are multiple of uses of strong language ('f**k'). There is also word play on the name of a writer which sounds similar to very strong language ('c**t'). Milder bad language includes uses of 'shit'.

Sex

There are a couple of sex scenes including a woman dropping her head into a man's lap for oral sex which takes place below the edge of the screen. A man also imagines a couple in bed with a bare backed man thrusting on top of a woman.

There are strong verbal sex references including a reference to 'fingering' and a man speculating that some women might think that a cigarette is like an 'elephant's dick' and that men would be able to 'tear them apart'.

Other issues include scenes in which several characters smoke. In one a young boy is seen to light a cigarette but he is an imaginary representation of a character's broken heart rather than a real boy and the scene cuts away from him before he smokes the cigarette.
