Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that teens talk about having sex explicitly in this film. Girls and boys masturbate, as well as give and get oral sex. There's discussion and depiction of premature ejaculation and faking orgasm, and boys talk about lying to girls to get them to sleep with them. And mostly, teens try to find out about sex without talking to their parents. This is a case where it would be good to watch the film ahead of teens, all of whom know about the series and probably want to watch it.
- Sexual Content
- Lots of raunchy sexual discussion as well as sexual behavior, including viewing a porno, masturbation, boys and girls giving and getting oral sex, taping a girl (without her knowledge) who's changing and masturbating, and, of course, having sex with a pie. In the end, several couples have sex, including one mother and a teenage boy.
- Not applicable
- Lots of profane and explicit sexual language, including "f--k," "giving head," and "p---y," as well as "b---hes, "s--thead," and "damn."
- Social Behavior
- Guys lie to each other and to girls to get them to have sex. Jim secretly records a girl changing her clothes and then masturbating to pornography without her permission or knowledge and broadcasts it to everyone in school. Finch pays a girl to lie about how good he is in bed and give him a good reputation.
