There's a scene where Nev reads a series of steamy, sexual text-messages between him and his online Internet love interest. They are somewhat graphic, but only a few allude to actual nudity and sexual content.


Three brief uses of "bulls**t", one use of "pissy", and one brief use of "damn" in text. Some use of God's Name in vain.

There is a somewhat moving scene towards the end of the film.

There is a scene where Nev and his two friends are driving around in a barn around 2:30 AM, which some people could find as creepy, due to the context of their motives.

Rated PG-13 for: Adult Content, Adult Language.(HBO advisory)

Rated PG-13 for some sexual references
