A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this movie.

Positive Messages

Despite the graphic scenes and language, the film encourages teens to ignore their stupid friends and figure out when they want to have sex and with whom. The film also includes discussion of concepts like a "guilt-free weekend pass" for sex with others. Repeatedly mocks little people.


Cooz gets kneed or kicked in the balls several times. Adam gets jumped by a gang of little people and beaten up.


There's tons of raunchy talk about sex, lots of nudity (of girls and boys), and lots of talk about having sex and getting "p---y." Explicit discussion of sex, including two girls going down on each other, blow jobs, etc. Erik watches a porno in the first few minutes, complete with porn soundtrack and moans, and ejaculates on his parents as they catch him. Erik and his girlfriend attempt to have sex, but get caught and Erik runs down the street naked. A sorority girl uses a vibrator on Cooz and makes him participate in violent sex. Eventually, Erik and Tracy do sleep together, and the viewer sees shots of their faces during the act.


A lot of sex-related raunchy language, including "f--k me, baby," "a--hole," "p---y," "s--t," "motherf---er," "bitch," "hell," and "bastard."

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

Ryan and Cooz take erection pills. College students engage in binge drinking contests and the implication is that they have alcohol poisoning afterward. High school students drink beer, smoke pot, and take nitrous.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that lots of girls are naked in this film, and lots of boys are too (you don't see the boys from the waist down, but you do see the girls). Much of the language around sex is derogatory toward girls, calling them "pieces of ass" and simply "p---y." Both Erik and Tracy get pressure from their friends to have sex. There are scenes of naked people and girls in lingerie dancing. Erik and Tracy have sex, though it's portrayed as a beautiful thing, part of love. Cooz has kinky sex that he doesn't really want with an aggressive sorority girl.

Really bad my son's 15 and he can't watch it. Nudity is the main problem and sexual jokes.

What's the story?

Erik Stifler is a sweet guy with good friends, and he's even a little cool. But he's also the cousin of notorious womanizers Matt and Steve Stifler (Steve was played by Seann William Scott in the first several films of the American Pie franchise), and he feels pressure to live up to the Stifler name. Even his father says that when he was Erik's age "I was up to my neck in poontang." But Erik also has a girlfriend of two years, Tracy, who isn't ready to have sex. So far, Erik has been respectful of that, but as senior year winds to a close and his friends exert more pressure on him, he starts to pressure Tracy. Meanwhile, Tracy is getting pressure from her friends to "give him a reason to stick around or he'll find a girl with looser boundaries." So when Erik's friends encourage him to attend an annual college ritual called the Naked Mile, Tracy gives him a "guilt-free weekend pass" to have sex as much as he wants and come back to her. What will Erik do? How will it affect his relationship?

Is it any good?

It's very easy to overlook the real moral of this raunchy story -- that each teen needs to figure out for himself what he wants sexually, regardless of what parents or friends say. All the naked breasts, lingerie, sexist language, hard-on jokes, and gross-out humor can't help but get in the way. But strip away the raunchy dressing of THE NAKED MILE -- if you can -- and you have an oddly sweet love story of two teens in a committed relationship trying to figure out when and if they're ready to have sex. Though the extremely explicit presentation of the subject matter may make parents uncomfortable, it can give older teens a chance to talk about what messages they get from their friends about sex and how they can make smart decisions for themselves.

Parents may be alarmed by some of the things the girls say -- Tracy's friend advises her, "We're girls. Boys should know better than to trust us to be rational. It's not in our natures." -- and some of the things boys say -- when discussing Erik's "tragic" virginal status, a friend says, "I blame Tracy. If she would just give up a little ass maybe you wouldn't be killing your relatives with your money shot." All this bawdy banter and exposed flesh, in their own way, serve the plot, making Tracy and Erik work harder to reach the right decision for them. The fact that they choose love instead of promiscuity should provide some relief to parents.
