Dazed and confused is a great coming of age story set in the 1970s. Parents should know that there is some drug content. A couple of the characters are pot-heads. The only other thing is the language which is pretty mild but can be bad at times. This should be fine for 13-14+

Some fleeting glimpses of clothed kissing and caressing. A boy briefly touches a girl's clothed breast.

Several references.

A young man pours beer over another young man's head before punching him in the face. He responds by tackling the former to the ground and punches him in the face a few times before the fight is broken up; one of them is then seen with a slightly bloody lip and a couple of facial bruises.

A few freshmen boys are spanked with wooden paddles. We see the face of one of them as his bottom is hit 5 times onscreen.

Some freshman girls get partly covered with various sauces and other substances, among a few other things.

Four kids in a car knock over a mailbox with a baseball bat, and a man runs after them with a gun. He then shoots at them as they drive away, but no one is hurt.

An angry woman storms out of her house, shotgun in hand, and points it at a young man who is chasing and bullying her son.

Around 20-30 f words as well as some milder swear words. There are several insults and slang terms, as well as a couple of homophobic expletives.

The main drug used is Marijuana though it isn't really a concern until the end.

There is one instance of a teenage boy buying weed, and later the same person attempting to sell it at a party (no dialogue).

Some other drugs are discussed, but no others are used with the exception of LSD once or twice.

Semi-frequent use and consumption of cigarettes and alcohol. A freshman lies about his age to buy beer.

Rated R for pervasive, continuous teen drug and alcohol use and very strong language
