A boy shows his friend how to feel a date's breast during a movie. We see a boy and girl sitting in the back seat of a parked car, talking nervously. its family movie

A boy considers talking to an unpopular boy, and his friend warns him he can "kiss his chances of losing his virginity goodbye if he talks to him."

A man slaps and hits a boy; the boy's mouth gets bruised. A scuffle. A man cuts his eye in a mining accident; another dies in the mine (we see a sheet-covered body carried out of the mine on a stretcher). We see a man with a bandage on his head (his skull was apparently fractured in a coal-mining accident).

A couple anatomical and scatological references, lots of mild profanities and many insults

Rated PG for language, brief teen sensuality and alcohol use, and for some thematic elements
