Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that We Are Your Friends is a drama about DJ culture in Southern California's San Fernando Valley. Teens may be drawn in by the pulsing electronic dance music or stars Zac Efron and Emily Ratajkowski, but the material is definitely geared toward more mature viewers. Topless women are shown (and women are objectified in general), and there are sex scenes and kissing. Language is very strong, with frequent use of "f--k," "s--t," "c--t," and many others. Characters get in fights and drink a lot, as well as doing many different kinds of drugs, from cocaine to Ecstasy and pot. A key character is a drug dealer, and one character dies, apparently from consuming too much during a party.

Sexual Content

Three topless women shown. Quick sex scenes in a car and a bathroom; longer sex scene in a hotel bed. Kissing. Women are generally objectified. Partners cheat on one another.


Scenes of punching, fighting, with scrapes, bruises, and scratches on faces. A supporting character dies of substance abuse.


Strong, frequent language includes "f--k," "s--t," "motherf----r," "p---y," "a--hole," "t-ts," "c--t," "bitch," "d--k," "jerk off," "piss." Middle finger gestures.

Social Behavior

Most of the movie is all about partying and trying to get famous. The movie tries to encourage artists to make their work personal and to put their own feelings and experiences into what they create, but that message rings hollow in such an impersonal film.


Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

A supporting character is a drug dealer. Main character has a PCP trip (melting colors, etc.). Drugs are shown/used -- including cocaine, pot, Ecstasy, and a spliff (combination of tobacco and pot). Drinking/partying. Painful hangovers.
