Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that G.B.F. is a brazen, campy high school comedy with a rapid-fire pace of sexually (and sometimes ethnically) laced insults, expressions, and discussions, as well as swear words like "s--t" and "bitch." There's a scene of underage drinking that leads to a hookup between two guys, as well as some casual smoking. Though it's ultimately a film about accepting people and not treating marginalized groups as trendy accessories, to do this, the film exploits stereotypes and mines them for every drop of irreverence and innuendo to be found. Best suited for mature teens.

Sexual Content

A teenage boy lifts the shirt of another teenage boy to snap a picture of his abs. A guy grabs another guy's hand and places it on his crotch. Both same-sex and opposite-sex couples kiss. A teenage boy and girl make out at a party, lying back on a bed. Two guys kiss, then wake up together the next morning, confused as to whether they had intercourse. Lots of innuendo, such as when a parent asks his gay son whether he likes his Popsicle "thick and fruity."


Not applicable


Lots of innuendo, explicit sexual or ethnic references, and sexually or ethnically charged insults, often via abbreviated slang. They range from expressions such as "that's so gay" or calling someone a "vagina enthusiast" or "hetero buzzkill," "homosexy," or "amazeballs" to much crasser insults and plays on words, such as calling someone a "vapid whore's sexless accessory," "fag-off," "faggot," "jizz bin," "half-assed handjob," "desperate psycho bitch," "mucho muncher supreme," "those bitches can suck it," as well as calling an Asian teenager "won ton" and "Gaysian," among other colorful expressions. Elsewhere, the film contains mild profanity such as "s--t," "what the hell," "bitch," and "eff that."

Social Behavior

G.B.F. offers positive messages about treating people like human beings -- not accessories -- and turns some stereotypes on their head.


There's some name dropping of labels such as Versace and Gucci, as well as some obviously branded or labeled clothing, such as Chanel gloves.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Casual underage smoking at school and a scene of drinking at a party without consequences. In one scene, multiple teenagers sip on orange Solo cups; in another, a canned beverage shared by many partygoers is said to have alcohol. In one scene at a party, girls are shown stumbling around drunk. An inebriated teenager offers another teenager who's also drunk a ride, but he declines. Two teenagers wake up together, confused about whether they've hooked up due to alcohol consumption. A teenager throws up after drinking too much. A teenager sneaks away from watching a movie with his mother to drink in the kitchen.
