Beware sex scene!

I put this on for my 13 year old daughter because generally I don't question it if it's got a PG-13 rating (or 12 as it is here in the UK. So I was pretty surprised when they showed a pretty full on sex scene between the main characters, the girls breasts are shown and it doesn't leave much to the imagination! I've never seen a scene like that in a 12 rated film before, and I think it's inappropriate. My daughter even said, they've only known each other 2 minutes!

This title has:

Too much sex
