Good teen movie, but most people might be offended, with the amount of teen drug and alcohol use, and the constant freshmen hazing.
This was the first movie on my bucket list to watch when I turn 16, and now that I've seen it, I thought it was a good movie. But, I was offended by a majority of the events that happen in the duration of the movie. Like the nonstop drug and alcohol use among teenagers, that is a very big problem, and it was the main reason why this movie was rated R. Every single scene, has high school students smoking cigarettes, bongs, and drinking beer. Also, one of the main plot points of the movie, was that incoming high school freshmen were constantly getting hazed by the seniors, and I have many problems with that. I mean it is understandable since the setting of the movie was 1976, where that type of stuff was ok, I guess, but that still doesn't mean that they should keep constantly doing it throughout the movie, and what makes it worse was that none of the adults did anything about it, well accept for that one scene where a freshman's mother wielded a shotgun on the bully. And there's one major fight scene in between two drunk teenagers that was just too brutal. But, if there is one thing that I really like about this movie, it is the soundtrack. And I also like how Pink stands up for the one freshman who was getting hazed by the seniors. I do think that this is a good teen movie, but there was just some subject matter that may leave people offended.
