The content of this page was created directly by users and has not been screened or verified by IMDb staff.
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.

Sex & Nudity

The camera follows Jenn's bare legs from behind as she walks through a house at night. She enters a bedroom and the camera tilts up to show her, in silhouette from behind, taking off her top. The camera tilts down to her ankles, where we see her panties drop. She steps out of them and slides under the blankets with Steve to seduce him. Nothing can be seen until Kate comes into the room and stops it. Jenn's bare breasts can be seen throughout the scene as she and Kate argue . NOTE: Steve is supposed to appear as Jenn's father, but we find later in the film that he is not. Therefore, it is not considered a form of incest.

A man and woman kiss passionately (in a room full of people) and he grabs her but during the kiss.

Billy suggests that Kate's Tokio Toilet, Toto, satisfied him sexually. Later on, Summer goes to try out the toilet.

Jenn and an older man appear to be talking about the man's large penis size but it's later shown that he was referring to the size of his boat.

Jenn and her older lover can be heard moaning and it is strongly suggested they are having sex. The audio is played over a shot of the boat they are supposed to be in.Kate and Steve begin to kiss romantically, the next scene they are in bed and supposedly had just had sex.

Toward the end of the film when Steve is pulling the neighbor out of his pool, the neighbors' underwear is see through and you can see his genitals.

Some nudity. Sexual references and situations.

Violence & Gore

The only actual violent scene shown is when Tim punches Mick in the face several times, leaving him bloody and bruised. Because Mick tried to kiss Tim.

Naomi gets into a car accident as a result of drunk-driving. Nothing is really shown, but later on she is shown with bruises and scrapes on her face and her arm in a cast.

Profanity

The f-bomb is dropped a few times but it is fairly tame with the swearing. There is a good deal of crude and sexual humor or just talking.

Naomi and Mick smoke marijuana in a brief scene.

Steve and the men on the golf course smoke cigars.

Jenn's friends ask her if she has any more diet pills. Suggesting she has been providing them.

At all the parties, everyone has some sort of alcoholic beverage.

A party involving teens gets very wild and everyone is drinking. Naomi leaves by herself and gets into a car accident as a result of drinking.

Towards the end of the film, Summer and Steve find Larrys body in the bottom of the pool. He had tied himself to a tractor and driven in sometime before the scene.

The movie as a whole, should be taken fairly serious because it deals with serious issues that everyone struggles with today and can relate to. Such as, greed, money, intimacy, jealousy, sexuality, fitting in, and many other issues.
