Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that while Behaving Badly -- a raunchy comedy with lots of shock humor -- centers on a high-school-aged protagonist, it's not appropriate for teens. There's tons of sexual content, including topless strippers, casual sex, relations between an adult woman and a teen boy, and references to masturbation, oral sex, orgasm, prostitution, and adultery. Constant strong language includes "f--k," "s--t," "a--hole," "bitch," and much more, and there's casual and excessive substance use and abuse, including an alcoholic mother who attempts suicide and teens and adults who use Ecstasy. Despite starring teen-friendly actors like Selena Gomez and Nat Wolff, this is definitely an adults-only comedy (assuming any are actually interested).
- Sexual Content
- Lots of nudity and sexual material, from extended scenes of topless dancers in a strip club to continued shots of a guy in boxers to discussions and scenes of high school-aged guys masturbating, references to erections, oral sex, anal sex, prison sex, and loss of virginity.
- There are dead bodies, a mother who attempts suicide, mafia goons who threaten and chase, a fist fight and more. A series of teachers die.
- Strong language is used in nearly every scene of the movie and includes "f--k," "s--t," "bitch," "a--hole," "d--k," "p---y," "douchebags," "Jesus F--king Christ," and "motherf--ker."
