Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this hard-R high school sex comedy -- which is squarely aimed at teens -- is "Judd Apatow lite," meaning that it has all the crassness of Apatow's comedies but not nearly as much heart or brilliance. It centers around a high school senior who's fixed on losing his virginity with the help of a girl he met on the Internet. The road trip to see her is pockmarked with one over-the-top sequence after the next, many of which feature nudity, graphic discussions of sex acts, sex toys, and more. There's also plenty of underage drinking and lots of swearing (including "f--k").
Characters listen in on others having sex; bare breasts are exposed, as well as a man's testes. Lots of talk about sex: how to have it, what makes it fun. The film opens with a teenager having a dream about someone performing a sex act on him (oral sex is implied). A sex toy features prominently in one scene. Online sex chats are shown onscreen. Characters hook up with strangers, some of whom are married.
A man in a truck tries to mow down a naked teenager he catches having sex with his wife. Lots of yelling. Two brothers can't seem to stop fighting; the older one likes to beat up on the younger. Gunshots are fired, and a gun is brandished.
Frequent and crude; includes everything from "bitch" and "goddamn" to "c--ksucker" and "f--k."
Teens have sex with complete strangers, though it's worth noting that they're also shown shopping for condoms. Friends are loyal to one another, even when their bonds are tested. Parents seem downright invisible. Some sexist and homophobic jokes.
Mentions of Trapper Keeper notebooks and other products, plus logos for Lifestyles condoms, Pontiac GTO, Vans shoes, and Senor Donut.
Drugs / Tobacco /
Loads of teenage drinking, often to excess. Little discussion of the consequences, including drinking and driving. Some allusions to drug use.
