A character puts on a pornographic video, although only foreplay is actually shown onscreen.

There are several sex scenes, some of which are played for laughs: there's one on a bed with thrusting and breathing. Another one portrays oral sex; there is no nudity in the scene and the act is never spoken, but what's happening is clear.

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

A teenage girl leans over to another girl and sensually kisses her on the lips. Both are fully clothed.

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.

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.

Also, a main character's last name is "Flick", which is spelled out all over the movie, purposely written with the "L" and "I" close together to make it look like the F-word.

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. The film is generally edited for television, however, in a version that would likely be rated PG-13.


MPAA:
Rated R for strong sexuality, sex-related dialogue and language, and a scene of drug use
