Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that anti-Semitism is expressed by both adults and youngsters -- most older children will understand that the movie aims to communicate how wrong this behavior is, but parents may still want to discuss the topic further after the movie is over.

Sexual Content

Scattered adolescent boy stuff: The prep schoolers talk about someone's sister performing a sexual act, go looking for sexual adventures at a dance, and show their naked backsides in the shower.


David engages in fistfights, most notably in the opening back-alley brawl.


Moderate, including "Bastard" and "Jesus."

Social Behavior

Characters express anti-Semitism and cheat on a test, but the behavior is portrayed negatively and contributes to the movie's central themes.
