This is by no means a movie for 13 year olds?!

The movie sexualizes women, and potrey them as a group of prostitutes. The movie furthermore shows serveral women naked, and the actors use filthy language. Drinking is also a big part of the movie.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
