ODE TO JOY is a US romantic comedy in which a man struggles with his happiness-induced seizures when he meets the woman of his dreams.

Language

There is infrequent use of strong language ('f**k', 'motherf**k'), as well as other terms such as 'God', 'hell', 'asshole', 'Jesus Christ', 'shit', 'fricking', 'bitch', 'titties', 'damn', 'crap', 'balls', 'booty' and 'dick'. Women jokingly refer to themselves and others as 'whore' and 'skank'.

Sex

There are references to 'hand jobs' and 'jerking it'. It is implied that a man gets an erection. Couples kiss, and roll about on beds, but there is no sex or nudity.

Drugs

A man recalls his sister making him smoke a joint when he was twelve.

A man, who suffers from happiness-induced seizures, puts drawing pins in his shoes to prevent them. There is mild threat and bloody images.
