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."

Social Behavior

No perceivable positive messages except the reminder that unprotected sex can lead to sexually transmitted diseases.


Featured brands include cars like Mercedes Benz, Audi, and Aston Martin, plus Apple computers and Stoli Vodka.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Underage teens and adults drink to excess. Mrs. Stevens is an alcoholic and nearly overdoses on pills. Teens and adults take Ecstasy.
