Spoilers

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

Sex & Nudity

  • Carolyn has an affair with Buddy. The two have sex in a hotel room, with no graphic nudity (we see his torso and her bare legs) but plenty of thrusting and sexual sounds, including explicit sex talk. The scene is played for laughs.
  • A man kisses a teenage girl and reveals her bare breasts but then stops and leaves her.
  • The colonel kisses Lester in a homoerotic way.
  • A main factor of the movie is a grown man having a crush on his daughter's underaged best friend. He has multiple fantasies about her. the minor child says multiple times that she would have sex with him if he was really buff. The man then exercises a lot to improve his sex appeal. Toward the end of the movie, the two start making out and almost have sex, but they stop, but not before the minor child exposes her breasts.

Violence & Gore

  • The colonel shoots Lester in the back of the head, blood splatters all over the wall in front of him, a lot of blood is seen on the killers shirt and face.
  • A man is shown with a ton of blood gashing out of his head at the end of the movie.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • A father (who seems to have some sort of PTSD) tells his son to get out of the house. The mother (who seems to have some sort of delusional mental disorder) and tells her son to wear a raincoat. The son tells his mom that he wished things could have been better before leaving.
  • The film's main storyline revolves around a middle aged man having a mid-life crisis, the crux of which is his efforts to have sex with his daughter's friend. The ending where he nearly has sex with the friend is very uncomfortable to watch, although it doesn't happen. Lester's death is a very emotionally effecting moment.
