Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that some teens will want to see it, but a lot of reprehensible behavior and irresponsibly is presented here. There are many sexual references, as well as a lot of profanity.

Sexual Content

Women are pursued solely for sexual gratification; teenage girls are scarily experienced, modeling lingerie and hinting at their bedroom talents. A jock wearing only a thong is tied up and blindfolded, then displayed to his classmates. Lots of groping, innuendo, porn references, and one sex-ed scene with a five-foot model of the male sex organ.


Some bone-crunching "touch" football; a gym coach repeatedly beans his baseball players.


Moderate bathroom and sexual profanity and phallic references.

Social Behavior

Girls are basically sex toys; virtually no students of color appear. Explicit bathroom humor.
