Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Just Friends is crude, and there are frequent sexual allusions (to masturbation, genitals, and other sexual activities). It moves beyond satire to vulgar cruelty as it lampoons women, homosexuals, and just about everyone else. Characters smoke cigarettes and drink; one character appears "high" after she taking Vicodin. An Ashlee Simpson-styled pop singer wears revealing clothing (tight and midriff-revealing tops) and attempts to seduce a high school student. The film includes frequent "New Jersey" jokes along with a bit of mild cursing (including half a "f--k").
Frequent sexual jokes, slang, imagery; one girl is especially promiscuous.
Comedic, slapstick violence (one neighborhood hockey scene is especially brutal); brothers tussle and punch one another; romantic rivals fight.
One aborted f-word; frequent other mild cursing.
Rude and competitive boys compete over nice girl.
Christmas holiday overkill (especially lights on houses and shops).
Drugs / Tobacco /
Drinking and drunkenness, cigarette smoking.
