Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this movie has locker-room talk of erections, masturbation, tricking the French teacher into saying English naughty words, and other matters in school; lurid family melodrama out of school, eventually encompassing robbery, suicide, and mercy-killing.
- Sexual Content
- Frequent discussion of sex and lust. Tom's mother has a disconcerting habit of using the bathroom while her son's in the shower.
- One window broken.
- Some pretty strong stuff for PG-13.
- Social Behavior
- Though he gets points for being independent and resourceful in trying circumstances, the scamp of a young hero routinely lies to his mother, tricks teachers, and does both to take the heat off his wayward buddy. Oh and he...kills somebody.
