Sex & Nudity

  • Eric mentions something about being ready to "get his freak on" and one of the girls tells him to "put your freak away before you hurt somebody." We also see Dean make a sexual gesture toward one of the girls by putting his hands on either side of his clothed crotch and then doing a pelvic thrust. Eric then mentions that he's ready to get his "groove on" with Belinda (but she blows him off). PG/PG13
  • A photoshopped picture of Jaime circulates around the cafeteria. It is of a women in a bikini. However in the background on the flyers the other students are holding, the original picture (of a naked woman) can be seen faintly. PG/PG13
  • When Jamie and Landon are looking at the stars he pulls out a blanket and Jamie asks him if he is going to seduce her. Then he asks her if she is seducable. She answers no. It goes no further from there. PG
  • Eric thrusts on a bench implying two people having sex, he impersonates the guy and girl in the situation. PG/PG13

Violence & Gore

  • After seeing his friends making fun of Jamie, Landon pushes Dean, who then pushes him back. Landon then punches him in the face and Dean then pushes someone aside who tries to intervene. PG
  • A teenage boy jumps from a very high height in to a lake (as a form of hazing). When he resurfaces, he is not moving and is eventually dragged out of the water. He is conscious but bleeding. The character is later found out to be hospitalized. PG

Profanity

  • At least 11 "s" words, 5 hells, 3 asses, 1 damn and 1 incomplete "Jesus" used as exclamations, at least one jackass. PG/PG13
  • When Jamie closes the door in Landon's face a second time (the first porch scene at her house) he responds "Jamie" (barely audible), then a very loud "Dammit." PG
  • Note: With Jamie being the Preacher's daughter, there are several religious names used, both as exclamations and in the proper context. G/PG

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Landon shows up at an initiation get-together and asks if anyone has any beer. A friend comments that they drank it all back at school and someone jokingly mentions that Landon already had enough. PG/PG13
  • During a visit to the Principal's office, the Principal pulls out a few empty beer bottles and states that they were found on school property and that someone reportedly saw Landon and his friends drinking at the dance the previous night. PG

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • At the beginning of the picture a teen is pushed into shallow water from high scaffolding and is knocked out, and when he is picked up he is bleeding.
  • Jamie gets upset when seeing flyers featuring her face on a bikini clad woman's body, and begins to run off when she is stopped by Landon. He comforts her then confronts the boy who made them. They get in to a small fight, before he swears at Landon and Landon and Jamie leave.
  • Note: The flyers originally featured a naked woman but in order to maintain a PG rating a bikini was constructed on the image. This is only on the flyer shown close up. The flyers that the other students are holding have the original naked image, which can be seen but only from a distance.

Spoilers

The Parents Guide items below may give away important plot points.

Violence & Gore

  • Jaime reveals she has leukemia, and she passes out in one scene. We see her in the hospital hooked up to IVs and an oxygen tank. She looks frail afterwards, and it is revealed that she passes in the end, although we do not see the actual death. PG
  • Landon is very moody and gets into a lot of verbal and physical arguments. He also doesn't want to have anything to do with his father, and he is shown shunning him. There is an emotional apology later, which can make people cry. PG

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Scenes involving a person dying from leukemia (the person collapses and is then in the hospital, etc.) may be disturbing to some viewers.
  • Landon is very moody and gets into a lot of verbal and physical arguments. Some of them can be upsetting to sensitive viewers. He also doesn't want to have anything to do with his father, and he is shown shunning him. There is an emotional apology later, which can make people cry.
