A man tells another man to picture his grandmas vagina and a penis going into it to make him throw up.

A man says he was going to to drugs (see Alcohol and Drugs) and then masturbate.

A lot of teenage kissing. Especially during a high school party.

A man calls a woman "hot and slutty in a good way".

Two men act like they having sex with another man who is hand cuffed to the ground after an arrest.

A man asks if another man went into puberty at age 7.

Lots of sex talk.

Violence & Gore


A bloody shootout at the film's climax involves several cops, a teacher and multiple drug dealers. Blood spurts as people are shot and it evolves into a car chase, which ends with an explosion and a man getting shot in the groin (he tries to pick up his penis off the ground with his mouth.)

A fight at a party involves hard blows and a man getting stabbed in the back. He bites on a lemon as the knife is taken out and vodka is poured on the wound.

A couple of schoolyard fights.

A man on a motorcycle is shot in the back during a car chase and he falls off.

A motorcyclist crashes and a semi-truck runs over his legs.

A man is shot in the neck then several times in the chest.

A teenage boy gets hit in the nose with the back of a gun. It bleeds.



Over 120 f-bombs, 70 uses of 'sh*t' and at least 100 other obscenities and profanities.


The usage and sale of a fictional drug is shown in multiple scenes, with the effects depicted vividly (hallucinations, hyper activity, mania.)

Two cops procure booze and weed for a party with high school aged people, people are visibly drunk and joints are passed around. Drug dealers share a joint as two cops spot them.

Cocaine is found inside of a motorcycle.


The whole film is highly comedic and cartoonish...towards the end of the film, there is a bloody shootout which could frighten the squeamish, even though it stays within the film's comic realm.

65/100 (15 and up)
