Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that movie includes frequent car racing and crashing, including a car that flips over and explodes, killing the driver (with a disclaimer advising viewers not to try such tricks at home). High school-aged boys fight (a beatdown in the schoolyard), a Yakuza gangster threatens violence; gangsters show guns (inspiring the kids at risk to jump in their cars and drive fast again). High school-aged girls show much skin and dance provocatively in brief party scenes. High school kids smoke cigarettes and drink liquor; the adult villain smokes a cigar. Some language (s-word and suggestive soundtrack lyrics).
Girl takes off and waves her bra to start a race; high school age girls wear short skirts (schoolgirl outfits) and show cleavage; boys and men adorn their arms with pretty girls; two girls appear very briefly, kissing passionately (elicting comment by passing boy); sinuous dancing with focus on girls' bottoms.
Cars crash repeatedly, sometimes flipping over horribly, and in one instance, exploding and killing the driver; boys beat each other up, leading to bruised faces, crumpled bodies, bloody mouths.

High school kids race cars, smoke, and drink, Yakuza villains deal illegal merchandise and beat up rivals.
Cars galore (including Volkswagen, Mustang, Toyota, VeilSide autos and Toyo tires), Tabasco sauce, neon billboards in Tokyo (Sanyo, KFC, McDonald's, Citibank, Il Primo); iPod, Snickers.
