The movie opens with a woman climaxing for about 30 seconds, as a man performs oral sex on her. No nudity is seen, but we see the man lift his head up from her legs and she says, "My mom was so right. Nice guys really do eat the best p*ssy."

When a character goes to the house he is baby sitting at, a woman answers the door and the camera zooms in on her breasts.

A girl calls the main character to invite him to a party, and adds in the possibility of having sex as an incentive to go to the party as well as babysitting.

Some gay stereotyping, and sexual references throughout.

Extended Version: The buttocks of multiple men are briefly seen as they shower.

Extended Version: A brief but graphic conversation about the way a man performs anal sex with women.

Extended Version: While searching for his 'girlfriend,' Noah stumbles upon a girl sitting atop a guy on a chair having sex in a room. A side profile of her breasts are seen underneath the shirt she's wearing, and her nipples are briefly exposed.


A man is punched the face.

A man is shot in the foot, with a brief blood spray visible.

A babysitter and three children are shot at multiple times and involved in a car chase with drug dealers.

A fight between 2 characters break out. One of them is flipped and tossed into different things. 3 of the other characters then attack the other character. One jumps on his back and chokes him, another hits him in the face with a skateboard, and the last one punched him in the crotch. (Comical, not meant to be taken seriously)

A fight starts between a man and a group of people. We see a few people get knocked down before other people involved jump in and attack. (This is brief and comical as well)

Extended Version: A man is fooled into thinking someone has been shot, and we see the bloody wound, but it is revealed it is a prank.


Both the theatrical and extended version have between 55 and 65 uses of "f*ck," and around as many uses of "sh*t".

Words like "a**hole", "d*ck", and "p*ssy" are used several times each, and words like "damn", "ass", "bitch", and "balls" are scattered throughout.

Some religious exclamations/profanities.


The main character's goal in this movie is to buy cocaine and bring it to his girlfriend, who is at a party.

There is a brief and non-graphic sight of a man snorting a bump of cocaine.

A boy breaks open an egg full of cocaine which explodes all over the interior of a car.

We see people drinking at a bar, and people drinking at a party. We also hear of incidents involving drinking brought up in conversation.

A character casually smokes cigarettes.


Nothing frightening in this movie.

The car chase and shootings may be a little intense for younger viewers.
