Rated PG-13 for mature thematic material, language, some sexual content, and teen drinking

There is no nudity in this film. There are a couple of scenes depicting two teenagers kissing and embracing in the back seat of a car. In both scenes the girl is wearing a loose tank top. In one scene, the guy comes close to holding the girl's breast. In another scene, it is implied that the boy and girl have had sex. We do not see anything resembling sex happening, though. At one point some characters are talking about how having sex can really change relationships.

At one point we see her lying in bed as he stands outside. It is clear that she is not wearing a bra, but just a light shirt.

People are seen practicing martial arts fighting.


One use of "fuck".

Two uses of "shit".

One use each of "Jesus Christ", "Jesus", and "Christ" in a profane context.

One use of "goddamn".

Three or four uses of "dick".

Frequent use of God's name in vain.

Teenagers are depicted drinking alcohol at a party and getting drunk. The two main characters, however, are not shown getting drunk. The characters are shown to be very responsible about drunk driving. The lead male character is the designated key holder for one party, and decides to drive a partymember home, rather than let him drive himself home. He does drink one beer with the implication that one beer is not enough to get him drunk. There are no drugs in the film, nor is there any reference to illegal drug use.
