Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this is a review of the PG-13-rated version of the movie and not the unrated DVD. Expect to find even more adult content in the unrated DVD. This crude comedy about two lust-driven teen boys is full of boundary-pushing sex and language content. The main characters are surrounded by -- and happily ogle -- hundreds of girls clad in the shortest of shorts and tiniest of bikinis. Boys are shown naked from both the back and front (private parts are covered by towels, etc. in the latter case). Though actual physical contact is limited to kissing and a few scenes of "grab ass," the characters are constantly talking and thinking about "hooking up." Not surprisingly then, the language can get vulgar and sexist -- and it's also peppered with "s--t" and the like. Underage characters drink, and there's some same-sex kissing and fondling; many of the gay characters are played very stereotypically, though it's all meant to be funny rather than disrespectful.

Sexual Content

From the movie's opening moments to its final frames (including under the closing credits), raunchy teenage behavior is the focus of this film. There's enthusiastic kissing and passionate embracing throughout. Teen boys constantly ogle bikini-clad girls, girls in short shorts, and other girls of all shapes, sizes and ethnicity. There's no frontal nudity or bare breasts, but naked boys are seen from many angles on several occasions. Boys and girls grab each other's clothed butts. Same-sex female kissing in two scenes, and some gay and lesbian fondling. All of the above is played for comic effect and portrayed in a lighthearted manner.


Several punches to the face; football hits during a game; cheerleaders fall and hit the ground hard during practices -- no injuries.


Continuous bawdy language; every possible form of "s--t," plus "dick," "kicka--," "t--ty bar," "bang," "douche monsters," "bitch," "a--hole," "dog knockers," "boob," "goddamn," "suck bucket," and more. One character is defined by the extensive euphemisms he creates for all things female and sexual.

Social Behavior

Lecherous teen boys learn about caring and respect for the opposite sex -- but along the way their behavior is selfish, egotistical, and driven by their very randy urges. "Winning" is shown to be far less important than improving and doing the best you can.


Significant references to Staples Office Products are used to parody the concept of product placement in sports.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

One scene shows teen boys drinking, partying, getting drunk, and behaving ridiculously.
