Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Get a Job is a comedic look at recent college graduates (including characters played by popular actors Miles Teller and Anna Kendrick) struggling to get their careers going in entry-level corporate positions. While there's a message about staying true to yourself/your vision, the situations aren't quite realistic, so it's not something that young people should look to for realistic advice -- plus there's lots of drinking, pot-smoking, and sexual references, as well as some nudity (a topless dancer at a strip club, naked male rear end, etc.). There's also plenty of innuendo and sex/masturbation talk, and you can expect tons of colorful language, including "sh-t," "f-ck," "c-ck," "bitch," "p-ssy" and more.
- Sexual Content
- An extended scene is set in a strip club, where a topless dancer offers one of the characters career advice while also giving him a lap dance. A couple kisses and embraces; the woman is sometimes seen in her underwear. A minor but important plot line centers on a pimp and the prostitutes who work for him. A man shows his rear end while urinating in a cup for a drug test. A fair amount of discussion about masturbation.
- A group of young men picks a fight with several security guards, leading to mayhem but no serious injuries.
- Extensive swearing, mainly variants of "f--k" and "s--t," as well as "c--k," "bitch," and "p---y." In an extended sequence, a man is hazed at work by being forced to drink a foul liquid referred to as "deer cum."
- Social Behavior
- Work hard, and you'll get ahead, but it's also important to stay true to your own vision of the best way to get things done; just because things have always been done a certain way isn't a reason to assume that's the best way.
- Brands/products mentioned/seen include LA Weekly newspaper and the video game Halo.
- Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
- Characters drink frequently when they're hanging out, at home, or at clubs. Also lots of pot: A big bong is a permanent fixture in the living room where several characters live, and a key plot point is how a straightlaced character starts to smoke weed. Another plotline has a character pulling a drug-fueled all-nighter at work to complete a project.
