Violence & Gore

  • A young man pours beer over another young man's head before punching him in the face. He responds by tackling the former to the ground and punches him in the face a few times before the fight is broken up; one of them is then seen with a slightly bloody lip and a couple of facial bruises.

  • Some freshman girls get partly covered with various sauces and other substances, among a few other things.
  • Four kids in a car knock over a mailbox with a baseball bat, and a man runs after them with a gun. He then shoots at them as they drive away, but no one is hurt.
