  • Four twelve-year-old boys are seen are in their underwear taking out leeches from there skin ( this is in a rude manner)
  • Some very brief rude dialogue, but on the most part it is innocent

  • As most of the mild sexual dialogue is used by kids and teens, it is not harmful and a lot less extreme than movies like The Shawshank Redemption
  • Four boys come out of a pond with leeches all over them. It is implied that one of the boys' has a leech stuck on his penis. He reaches into his underwear and faints briefly after that.
