The content of this page was created directly by users and has not been screened or verified by IMDb staff.
Since the beliefs that parents want to instill in their children can vary greatly, we ask that, instead of adding your personal opinions about what is right or wrong in a film, you use this feature to help parents make informed viewing decisions by describing the facts of relevant scenes in the title for each one of the different categories: Sex and Nudity, Violence and Gore, Profanity, Alcohol/Drugs/Smoking, and Frightening/Intense Scenes.
Visit our Parents Guide Help to learn more

Sex & Nudity


Several people go skinny dipping- no nudity. Both male and female nudity in one of the ending scenes where the group is in an LSD induced state. Critical areas aren't seen, however.

Violence & Gore


Characters are beaten with sticks and one has his neck slashed with a machete. Two established characters are killed by gunshots at the end of the movie.



Despite the film's R rating, the language is pretty mild.


Marijuana is smoked throughout the entire movie.

Cocaine is used in mostly the beginning scenes.

Alcohol is consumed in a few scenes.

The characters take LSD and the following sequence is a cinematic representation of an acid trip.

A good deal of the substance abuse is reported to have been unsimulated.


The acid freakout scene is probably disturbing. The ending scene could upset and shock some viewers

An idea of how accurate the TECE (below) is: 5-10 is little-kid suitable, G-rated type (i.e. Care Bears, Sleeping Beauty); 10-15 is going to be a little harsher, but not by much (i.e. The Incredibles); 15-20 could be pretty high up there (i.e. Indiana Jones), 20-25 can be less kid-suitable (i.e. The Dark Knight); 25-30 is going to be a film most likely not suitable for children (i.e. Psycho); 30-40 is going to be a film meant for adults and not for children (i.e. Saving Private Ryan), and films that go over 40 (i.e. Ichi The Killer) are high in explicit content and only for mature audiences.


I think a 14 year old can handle the contents of this film.
