Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this Lifetime movie focuses on a mean-spirited prank among teens that leads to an intense, but largely offscreen deadly encounter. There's a good bit of teen and adult drinking and one couple fools around at a rowdy high school party. Expect some mild swearing ("bitch," "crap") and a few intense fight scenes.

Sexual Content

Two teens make out at a drunken party. It starts to get hot and heavy, and the scene ends as the girls starts to unbutton his pants.


Teens decide to dole out punishment through a cruel prank that leads to a pushing match that suddenly becomes a deadly attack. It's intense to see, even though almost nothing is shown on-screen. There are also a few bitter arguments.


Some swearing, including "crap," "whore," "bitch," and "skank."

Social Behavior

The movie demonstrates that mean-spirited pranks and dishonesty are never good ideas, and that sometimes being honest means making tough choices. Also, peer pressure is bad.


Some visible car brands: Toyota Prius, Jaguar.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Lots of drinking at a rowdy teen party. Some of the adults drink wine or other drinks at home. One high schooler mentions that he smoked pot.
