A young man is forced to wash a truck by a man stroking his belly. Sexual undertones are heavily implied.

A woman licks a man's face.

To impress a woman, a man inflates the crotch of his workout singlet.

Violence & Gore


Justin is called upon in cheerleader tryouts to try and lift a very large female cheerleader. He manages to get her in the air, but she then falls on him (landing in the "69" head to crotch position).

During the dodgeball training, Patches hits the guys several times with wrenches.

When White makes a pass at Kate, she slams his head into a wall and makes him bleed his own blood.

White tries to teach himself negative reinforcement by shocking himself with clamps on his nipples.

One of the main characters is crushed to death by a large sign.

Obviously there are lots of scenes of people getting hit by dodgeballs, in the face, crotch and other areas of the body.

Contains a scene where the foreign dodgeball player throws a dodgeball excessivley fast and it knocks some one out. Whilst unconcious, they fall to the floor and hit their head against a jukebox.

In the locker room, you see a group of men slapping another man in the stomach.



1 use of "fuck" (in the unrated, there are two more uses) and other mild language

A woman is referred to as "a dyke"


A 1950s style, dodgeball instructional film states that the sport started in Chinese opium dens (we see several men smoking from such pipes).

Several scenes of beer and alcohol drinking.

One of the girl scouts is accused of taking sterroids and a low grade beaver tranquilizer.


Overall: 15/50 - Recommended for ages 10 and up.
