A few songs contain sexual innuendo. During the song “We Gotta Make It Through The Winter,” the brothers sing about their affection and attraction to their brides.
DRUGS AND ALCOHOL
Alcohol is mentioned twice and chewing tobacco is referenced one time.
A lumberman gives Milly a hard time, and Adam fights him.
Several scenes contain physical skirmishes between the suitors and the Pontipee brothers, one of which involves guns
The show presents antiquated notions of marriage, given the fact that Adam is looking for a wife to take care of the chores his brothers don’t want to do. He believes he knows what a woman’s place is and how to keep her there. However, Milly shows him she’s her own boss.
The song “Sobbin’ Women” has sexist tones about how the Romans carried off women when they needed them for domestic purposes in their new territories.
The brothers’ misguided attempt to woo townswomen culminates with the carrying off of their brides in a silly, tongue-in-cheek manner. Ultimately, the brothers must earn back the respect of the women and atone for their actions.
