Brief scene of a man attempting to hit on the school principal, calling her "hot".

Dewey makes a comment about how he's been (emotionally) touched by the kids and that he thinks he's "touched them", which the parents are implied interpret as him saying he's molested their children. Young children will not get this joke.

One girl, after being assigned "groupie" by Dewey, later confronts him about it, saying that, rather than being "cheerleaders", that "groupies" are sluts that sleep with the band.


A character takes a stage dive and lands on the floor, passing out


A few uses of "ass".

One use of "pissed off".

A couple of "damns" and "hells".

One mouthed "bitch"; it's impossible to hear, but it comes up in the subtitles (if watching on DVD and you have them on).

Maybe a few uses of "crap", and possibly one or two "shits".

One use of slut.


Two of the characters are seen drinking, one of them seen as drunk in a later scene.

One character mentions that he has a hangover to the class and another scene discusses how one character got drunk at a staff dinner.

Another scene, after being confronted with complaints from one teacher hearing music coming from another character's classroom, the other character states to the class that "Uh-oh. You know what that means? She must be doing crack."

Some adult characters are seen smoking, and a child thinks they are cool.

Rated PG-13 for some rude humor and drug references
