I had read the NYT review, which said that apart from the language, the movie could be shown on broadcast TV. This made me think it would be like the TV version, with the addition of some curse words, and along the lines of The King's Speech, which was only rated R for occasional use of curse words. I couldn't have been more wrong. I normally don't let my children see PG-13 movies, but I let my guard down. In a complete lapse of judgement, I took my 9-year-old daughter and two of her friends, at the same time that my husband took our 10-year-old son. I totally regretted it. My husband is much more lax on these matters than I am, and he said he was shocked by how inappropriate it was. The beginning was tame and funny, but it quickly devolved into non-stop graphic cursing along sexual lines and graphic acting out of sexual scenarios, albeit in a horsing-around type of way. It also showed many scenes of teenagers making out, getting drunk and taking drugs. There is also violence, a teen death from a drug overdose, two deaths or more from gunshots and a graphic display of three-way sex, although the key body parts were covered up. This could never be shown on broadcast tv unless 30% of the scenes and dialog were deleted. The language alone was so profane, constant, and graphic that I feel that they have heard enough cursing and sex talk to last a lifetime. They shouldn't think that this type of language is common or permissible. If it had only been my husband and myself, I would have enjoyed the funny parts of the movie but still felt bombarded by the graphic nature and constant cursing. With my children there, I couldn't enjoy it at all, and my only hope is that most of it went above their heads. I discovered Common Sense Media after I came home from the movie and will definitely be checking this website before taking them to anything rated PG-13 or higher.
