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.

In the first scene, Paige tells Leo about a myth that having sex in a car will get you "preggers". They start kissing and are presumably about to have sex when the truck crashes into them.

Leo and Paige make out, then the scene cuts to them in bed, covered only by a sheet.

Paige is shown in her bra and panties a couple of times.

Paige and Leo jump in a lake wearing nothing but their underwear.

In one scene, Paige tells Leo that he's only getting to first base with her, and "maybe second base at the most".

Jeremy tells Leo that Leo's wife "threw herself at him". This is actually an exaggeration, but Paige really was seen kissing Jeremy earlier.

An older man is revealed to have had an affair with one of his daughter's friends.

Leo's butt is shown as he gets out of bed.

The car accident in the first scene is not gory, but disturbing to watch. See "Frightening/Intense Scenes" for more info.

Leo punches a man in the face and knocks him down. We see a little bit of blood coming out of his nose, but it's very minimal.

Some brief language, like !@#$%^&* and !@#$%^&*, but nothing over the top. Use of the Lord's name in vain.

Adult characters are seen drinking wine and beer at parties/weddings/bars.

In the first scene, there is a car accident scene where the two main characters are rear ended by a truck. She is not wearing her seat belt. We see the woman's head crash right through the windshield, and she is seen laying unconscious on the hood of the car; little blood is shown. Both characters are shown in the ER afterward.
