A teenage girl (Julie) masturbates, revealing her breasts.

A boy uses barbie dolls for self sex therapy. At one point he licks his hand and touches the doll's v*g*n* and the boy fantasies the doll replying and talking to him.

In another scene a boy shows a girl his p*n*s and even has her touch it and then suggest he sees her privates, she replies there isn't much to look at.

A lady sexually arouses her husband and he winds up masturbating his underwear and is really freaked out by it.

Some french kissing scenes; one takes place in bed and the lady asks her husband what he thinks about them having another baby.

No blood/no gore.

But a big bunch of domestic yelling and screaming.

In one scene a boy throws his sister's barbie doll and this lady says, "If you were my son, I'd kick you all the way to JC Penney's"

A dozen or so F-words (I'd say no more than 25) and surprisingly a very small handful of lighter/tamer language.

One flashback scene has drinking and driving.

Moderate smoking, but especially by teens.

Some rather heavy drinking is implied; mainly at bars.

Surprisingly no drug usage.

This film is rather tense. One of the main story lines is about this kid who is paralyzed from a car accident due to drinking and driving. Several people are upset at this.

There are several scenes of yelling and threatening.

Most of all, a mother kills her bed ridden son with a plastic bag (or at least the film once again heavily implies she does; otherwise she attempted to suffocate him)

Rated R for sexual content and language
