Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that they'll have to do some course correction after their teens see this movie -- which they'll all want to do. If your kids think this is how to relate to the opposite sex, they'll never find true love. The almost constant sexual references -- both visual (mostly girls in scant costumes) and verbal (slang for genitals and activities) -- are hormonally age appropriate but not recommended as healthy teen interaction. Sketchy behaviors revolve around a high school basketball star who dates multiple girls; the girls seek revenge by humiliating him in public. Their strategies involve crass gender stereotypes (girls get the boy to behave and dress like a "girl," assuming this is a bad thing). Characters drink alcohol.

Sexual Content

High school girls wear skimpy clothing; boys wear lacy thong underwear; some kissing and petting; references to STDs; discussion of effects of estrogen pills (jokes when boy starts crying and acting "girly"); use of phrase "uncork and pork" to refer to boy's dating strategy.


Basketball games get rough (body slams; hits in crotches); face slap.


Several uses of s--t and one damn; pejoratives like "slut," shallow bastard," "pansy-ass."

Social Behavior

Girls engage in ongoing lying and tricking to "get even" with cheating boyfriend.


Shots of junk food/logos in school food center (Coca Cola).

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
