Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Addicted to Fresno is a dark comedy that tries to mine laughs from sex addiction, murder, and stealing from children. The main character talks about sex all the time, and she'll sneak away for furtive encounters with almost anyone who'll have her -- though there's little actual nudity, and her encounters don't look especially sexy. Unsurprisingly, there are also tons of sexual references and lots of swearing (including "s--t," "f--k," and some graphic discussions about oral sex), as well as social drinking and a character who smokes cigarettes throughout the film. A scuffle leads to an accidental death and a dead body being schlepped around, and sex toys show up as unusual props in several scenes.
- Sexual Content
- The main character is a self-described sex addict who spends much of the movie talking about sex (sometimes very graphically, i.e. discussion of a desire to "suck d--k," etc.) and propositioning almost any man who crosses her path. A few brief sex scenes are anything but erotic; they feature noises, vigorous thrusting, and a long look at a man's naked butt. An extended scene includes tips on oral sex techniques. The characters visit a sex shop and end up with a cart filled to overflowing with sex toys that appear later, too.
- Two people get into a scuffle that takes a tragic turn when one slips and hits his head. The other spends much of the rest of the film saddled with a dead body as she tries to find a way to dispose of it. Much of this is played for laughs, and there's little sense of empathy or horror that she's accidentally killed someone.
- Frequent strong language, especially "ass," "d--k," "p---y," "jizz," "s--t," and plenty of variations of "f--k." One of the main characters is a sex addict who talks about her encounters at length at in graphic detail, including plenty of references to oral sex.
- Social Behavior
- Characters initially prioritize the wrong things, but eventually there's a bit of self awareness/actualization.
