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.

Violence

A group of young men picks a fight with several security guards, leading to mayhem but no serious injuries.

Language

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.

Consumerism

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.
