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.


Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

One peripheral figure is an alcoholic; another character chain-smokes and overdoses on sleeping pills; another one constantly asks for marijuana.
