I liked it

I think it was a pretty good movie besides the tons of swearing. It’s pretty violent and disturbing at times but it doesn’t go too far. There’s words like “sh*t” and “b*tch” and teens put in DivaCups and almost have sex. If you’re not scared easily, and you can handle some violence/swearing, you should watch it.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
