Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this program mines laughs from strong, unbleeped language -- ranging from gay slurs like "faggot" and "lezzo" to "s--t" and "motherf--ker." There's also some light violence, including reenactments of violent incidents, and some sexually charged terms and gestures, along with blurred-out nudity.

Sexual Content

Sexually charged terms like "wanking," coupled with crude sexual gestures. One character downloads online porn (which we see as blurred-out photos), and another allows his mother to market him as a gay skateboarder.


Descriptions, stills, and reenactments of gang fighting, etc. One character gets shot in the testicles, and there's a graphic photo of the injury. There's also minor bullying and teasing, but characters don't usually get physical.


Most teen characters freely use unbleeped language, from "p---y," "ass," and "dickhead" to "s--t" and "motherf--ker." They also use slurs like "poofer," "faggot," "lezzo," and "gay" (used in a derogatory sense).

Social Behavior

Both teens and adults use racial slurs and derogatory terms (like "retarded" or "fag" or "darkie"), typically without any correction or consequence.


A few brand names are mentioned, including the iPhone.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Characters talk about drinking or spending time in bars, but nothing really happens on camera.
