Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that despite the PG-13 rating there's a lot of material they may consider inappropriate. Abuse of alcohol and drugs is portrayed as normal and funny. While on drugs, a character drives dangerously, has casual sex, and sets a building on fire, also intended to be comic. Some kissing, including a same-sex kiss. A character is accidentally given drugs. Another pretends to be asleep so he can watch a couple have sex. Horrendous parenting by main character Shaun's parents is played for laughs. One character blackmails a friend by threatening to expose her slutty behavior.
Sexual situations, kissing, voyeurism.
Comic peril and injury (including death in a surfing accident). One character accidentally burns down a building. Things fall on the head of a sick man.
Strong language for PG-13, including one "f--k."
Implicit message to work hard toward your goal rather than resort to crazy schemes to get your way.
Drugs / Tobacco /
Drug and alcohol humor throughout the movie.
