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.

The two leading characters are shown having sex twice in the film. The first time is just after a party, when the boy (Matin Hewitt) sneaks back in after the girl's parents have gone to bed. The sexually unfulfilled mother (Shirley Knight) of the girl (Brooke Shields) gets up and starts to go downstairs when she sees the teenagers naked and having sex on the couch. But instead of reprimanding them, she watches them longingly, as if she were witnessing something she does not have.

Characters use terms damn and a**hole in different scenes.

There are a few scenes of the characters smoking. Keep in mind this was 1981 and smoking cigarettes was more common. There is also one scene of the father smoking pot.

The boy has a complete nervous breakdown late in the film. A house catches on fire. Somebody gets hit by a car.
