Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this raunchy teen sex comedy (whose producers include some of the folks behind popular website Funny or Die) is about four high school friends who agree to smoke pot in a special bong each time one of them loses his virginity. The bulk of the movie follows the final member of the group as he tries and fails time and again (his friends document his failures on video and post the results to YouTube ... which leads to issues with viral videos and cyberbullying). The movie is full of crass sexual talk and content (including Internet images of a porn star having sex, other partial nudity, and implied oral sex), as well as plenty of strong language (with many uses of "f--k" and "s--t") and frequent teen drinking -- all without consequence. Much of the humor is cruel, and it sometimes objectifies women.
Almost constant crass sex talk/innuendo, and some nudity. Viewers see images from the Internet of the real-life porn star Sunny Leone having sex, though neither her male partner nor penetration are shown. One of Matt's potential partners e-mails a naked picture of herself. Matt practices cunnilingus on an inflatable dummy. The boys visit a strip club -- some nudity among the strippers. A frat boy clearly enjoys oral sex, though the girl (and the act) are out of view. Matt shaves his genitalia in preparation for sex. Occasional kissing, both male-female and female-female. Brief partial female nudity in a couple of scenes as Matt attempts to have sex. Girls in bikinis.
Some insults and mild brawling among the friends. There's a jokey mention of rape.
Lots of uses of "f--k" and "s--t," as well as "d--k," "slut," "hell," "t-ts," "boner," "bitch," "p---y," "jack off," "ass," and "oh my God."
There's some small attempt to convince viewers to "only have sex with someone you love," but the extremely iffy behavior that leads up to this message makes it not worth the effort. Characters play pranks on one another, steal, damage property, and treat women as objects. The obsession with sex as an activity or a rite of passage borders on unhealthy, and there are no consequences for any of this behavior. The characters' constant use of YouTube leads to some cyberbullying incidents; the movie doesn't address that issue within the context of digital safety/privacy.
YouTube is a constant presence in the characters' lives and is used throughout the course of the film. A Gatorade bottle is visible in one shot.
