Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that there are plenty of flinch-inducing situations including one where Al's father pressures his son to have sex without any regard to his son's emotional maturity or to the strength of the relationship his son might have. The most painful of these scenes involves Mr. Johnson demonstrating how to put a condom on a bottle with one hand while keeping the attention of an imaginary girlfriend. Young men are repeatedly told that they should be "players", not respecting their female counterparts as people but seeing them instead as objects. Finally, the movie seems to buy into a high school notion of merit, with a person's worth measured by who they are dating and which expensive labels they wear.
