Since the beliefs that parents want to instill in their children can vary greatly, we ask that, instead of adding your personal opinions about what is right or wrong in a film, you use this feature to help parents make informed viewing decisions by describing the facts of relevant scenes in the title for each one of the different categories: Sex and Nudity, Violence and Gore, Profanity, Alcohol/Drugs/Smoking, and Frightening/Intense Scenes.
Visit our Parents Guide Help to learn more

Sex & Nudity

Nia pushes Craig onto a bed in one scene. They are interrupted before they go further, but Nia mentions how she'd like to "do it" in a hospital.

When Craig and Noelle finally develop a relationship, he talks about his ambition to sketch her naked. We see Craig drawing on a canvas, and Noelle peeking from behind (we see her bare shoulders).

The ward's shower doesn't have a lock, and a nurse walks in on Craig (we see his bare shoulders and her surprised face).

Craig pictures Nia in a bathtub, her toes and shoulders exposed.

Lots of sexual jokes throughout, and crude names for body parts. Example: a vagina is referenced as a beaver.

Violence & Gore

In a dream, Craig is about to jump off of a bridge to kill himself, but is interrupted by his family.

In a frustrated rage, Bobby screams and throws books around a room.

Craig is shown projectile vomiting at a restaurant with his family at the beginning of the movie after being asked how a class in school is going

Profanity

Three uses of "s**t", two uses of "d**k", and some mild language. One f-word.

Bobby and Craig briefly discuss a character who has a mental disorder because he took 100 pills of acid in one night.

Bobby and Craig pay off a janitor with some sort of pills to get into a gym.

Members of the ward are seen lining up for their medication.

The movie can be depressing at parts, being about a 16 year-old boy checking himself into a mental hospital because of suicidal thoughts. His fellow patients have disorders, one schizophrenic, one who cuts herself (never seen), and a man whose wife kicked him out and is afraid to reconnect with his daughter.

Suicide and mental stress is a main theme.

Ages 11 and up.
