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.

Sex & Nudity

A porno video is seen, although graphic details are not onscreen.

There are several sex scenes, some played for laughs: there's one on a bed with thrusting and breathing. There's also another one that portrays oral sex. There's no nudity in this scene and the act they're performing is never explicitly spoken, but it's clear what's happening.

One sequence shows a teacher having an affair with his student. There's one scene of making out, and another of implied sex.

Two high school teenaged girls are shown lying on a bed together (fully clothed) and one of the girls leans over to the other and sensually kisses her on the lips.

A teacher commits adultery with his former best friend's ex-wife. All that's seen is some making out and lying down to the floor, presumably to have sex.

A caveman exhibition at a museum features full-frontal male and female nudity, in close detail.

Violence & Gore

A girl gets some bloody cuts on her arms after she tears down some posters and a man's eye is very swollen after a bee stings him. We see two cups of urine and a man urinating (with the urine stream visible). Someone spits on a car and man throws a drink at a car.


About 15 F-words (some uttered as directives during intercourse), some anatomical references, a few scatological references, a few mild obscenities and several insults. This includes one use of c**t.

Some marijuana use is seen, as well as brief partying (and related alcohol use) by high school students.

None. Primarily a comedy.

Still, this film is mature, with lots of language and several sex scenes (some more realistic than others), and the scenes showing an affair between a teacher and a student are somewhat disturbing.

Recommended for 16 and up. However, the version that airs on TV sometimes would probably only be PG-13 if released as a movie.
