Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Walk of Shame is a raunchy, hard-R comedy about a woman (Elizabeth Banks) who has a very, very bad day after a drunken one-night stand. Stranded in central Los Angeles with no money, no phone, and no car, she endures a variety of misadventures as people mistake her for both a prostitute and drug dealer and refuse to offer help. Expect quite a lot of swearing ("f--k," "s--t," and more, plus plenty of sexual references), a night of very heavy drinking, some revealing outfits, a glimpse of a woman in her underwear, a few sequences with guns, drug references, and -- despite the fact that the movie is about the dangers of making assumptions about others -- some unfortunate stereotyping.
- Sexual Content
- A woman is briefly seen in her underwear and spends the night with a man she has just met. She's repeatedly assumed to be a prostitute because of her clothing and appearance. Several scenes include suggestive language ("d--k sucking," "c--k blocking") and references to sexual practices.
- One scene features full-on combat as rival drug gangs battle each other with automatic weapons. A couple also plays a game involving a large knife that leaves one participant scared but unhurt. A taxi driver threatens a passenger with a gun when she stiffs him on the fare.
- Strong, frequent profanity throughout, including "s--t," "f--k," "bitch," "ho," "c--k," "balls," and more. In one scene, two characters repeatedly say "suck d--k," and in another, two women talk about "c--k blocking" when they try to meet men in a nightclub.
- Social Behavior
- The movie explores the risks of judging and/or making incorrect assumptions about other people. That said, it also centers on a one-night stand.
- One character discusses her desire for a Quiznos sandwich. A woman loses her iPhone, leaving her unable to summon help. Some well-known people are mentioned by name, including Oprah and Marc Jacobs.
- Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
- A group of adult women gets very drunk at a nightclub, downing multiple shots and other beverages. One goes home with a guy, and they share more drinks at his place. The next day she gets involved with a group of drug dealers who give her a vial of crack. She doesn't use it but is still assumed to be a crack user by other people. One character smokes e-cigarettes.
