Sex & Nudity

  • Shelby's fiancee sneaks in through a window and enters the bathroom, where she's in a bubble bath. He sits on the side of the tub to talk to her, and she then gets out and puts on a robe, obviously not concerned that he's seeing her naked. She tells him that if her daddy catches him in there, he'll "cut off your thing".
  • Shelby says she and her fiancee went "parking" and then skinny dipping and "did things that frightened the fish".
  • Clairee interviews the football coach in the locker room after a game. Many players are naked, and their bare behinds are shown. Oiser uses a mirror to try to see behind herself to where the guys are changing.
  • One character says she lost her head for a while and was "drinking, smoking, and acting like a Jezebel" until a friend helped her straighten out.
  • The bride and groom's getaway car (from their reception), is covered in condoms.

Violence & Gore

  • Drum uses a gun (we later learn he's shooting blanks) to scare birds from the trees before his daughter's wedding. He and his sons later use a bow and arrows with fireworks attached for the same purpose.
  • Drum jokingly threatens to shoot an obnoxious neighbor.
  • The groom's aunt makes an armadillo cake for the wedding, and it's red velvet cake inside, so it looks graphic when cut into.


  • Many uses of "sh*t". One "G*dd*mmit" and several "Chr*st". One "son of a b****".

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Ouiser and Spud smoke cigarettes.
  • There are incidental uses of and references to champagne and wine, but no drunkenness.
  • One character becomes very religious and pours out her boyfriend's beer, saying she won't have it in the house.
  • One of the characters mentions that her estranged husband is on the run from the law, possibly because of drugs.

Frightening & Intense Scenes


The Parents Guide items below may give away important plot points.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • A character has diabetes and has a scary low-blood-sugar attack; it's intense while the others are trying to get candy and juice into her. Later, she needs a kidney transplant, and her mother donates a kidney. The scenes of the family waiting during the surgery are tense and suspenseful. Both recover, but the daughter later goes into a coma and dies, leaving her toddler son motherless.
