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.

Basically NOTHING for a R rated movie. Male buttocks few times. No female nudity. Some mild sex scenes without any nudity.

A man climbs a fence and falls to the ground hitting his head and knocking himself unconscious (we see him in the hospital later). A man confronts a young man working at an impound lot trying to convince him to let him have his car back. A woman yells at a man for being so self-absorbed. A brother and sister argue in several scenes. Several insulting remarks are made about people's intelligence. A man makes several remarks about his "adopted brother" in a negative context. A man questions his son about charges he made to a credit card. A woman rolls a man over in a hospital bed and injects him in the buttock (he moans in pain). A flyer reads, "Stem Cell Research Is The Wrong Choice."

6 F-words, 5 sexual references, 7 scatological terms, 7 anatomical terms, 5 mild obscenities, name-calling (litigious, narc, idiotic, misanthrope, scam artist, moron, retarded, stupid, arrogant, pompous windbag, monster), 3 religious exclamations.

A man and a 17-year-old girl smoke a marijuana cigarette. People are shown drinking alcohol in a nightclub and a 17-year-old girl is shown drunk, a man drinks alcohol from the bottle, a woman drinks wine with dinner, a man holds a half empty bottle of beer (we do not see him drink from it), and a man in a college dorm carries a bucket filled with empty beer cans to the garbage (he had apparently provided the beer to the dorm residents). A woman smokes a cigarette.

Rated R for language, brief teen drug and alcohol use, and for some sexuality
