Rated R for language and some violent content.

While Dennis and Arnie are in the car, Dennis said to Arnie "Why don't you get laid this year", as to have sex with the hottest girl in school.

A boy sees the new girl (Leigh) and wants to have deep meaning-less sex with her, he gazes at her passionately as he is leaving that camera shot.

45:35 A boy and a girl are making out in the car and he reaches his hand inside her shirt and bra passionately rubbing her breasts, minimal cleavage is visible. At the same time she passionately rubs and grasps his crotch, outside his trousers. Later on she then interrupts this and apologizes (meaning she's a virgin).

50:31 A man has his hands on a woman's breasts, though apparently without realizing it.

A man's corpse falls out of a car, apparently having suffered from carbon monoxide poisoning.

A man pulls a knife on another student.

A man grasps hold on a mans crotch.

A boy is chased by "Christine", which backs him against an alley wall and kills him off screen. We soon hear by a detective that the boy was cut in half.

A man goes flying across a garage floor and he dies instantly.

One boy was killed in the explosion of a gas station.

A boy is run over by a burning car (we see his burning corpse lying in the middle of the road).

A man is crushed between the front seat of a car and the steering wheel.

A boy falls out of a car and is impaled with a large shard of glass in his stomach (blood is shown.) This is the most graphic scene in the movie

A car is violently smashed and destroyed.

The R rating is primarily for heavy profanity.

About 2 uses of the middle finger.

Most swear words e.g F**k, S**t and C**t and other foul mouthed language e.g. Bastard, Sl*t, S**tter and Chickens**t are commonly used throughout the movie.

Heavy sexualised dialogue is current (naming woman's private body parts).

Religious Words used e.g. I swear to God, Jesus etc.

Adult and teenage characters drink alcoholic beverages and smoke cigarettes in several scenes.

These scenes have strong use.

Alcoholic beverages are shown drinking while driving and at the dinner table.

Young Adults and Parents are shown smoking inside (we see a heavy fog of cigarette smoke in the wrecking yard warehouse)

Scene where bonnet of car slams on an employees hand, we hear a blood-curdling scream.

Few scenes where car's lights flash on, this means that the car hasn't got a driver but is taking revenge on the S***ters.

Will Darnell (owner of Wrecking Yard) opens the drivers seat door and realises that no one has been driving Christine.

Car threatening to run over a girl as she attempts to hide in an office booth, but there is a padlock refraining the girl to hide. Later on the car tries to run over the girl (the girl is sheltered by a bulldozer).

The only thing that keeps this from getting the PG-13 rating is the language. The violence is mild for an MA15+ rating.
