Teen, 14 years old Written byannie091 September 5, 2018

I enjoyed it!

I quite enjoyed My Friend Dahmer and I am 14 years old. However, I say the movie should be watched by teens 14 (or mature 13s) and up, as it does have some themes. There is quite a bit of swearing in the movie, but nothing major and continuous. There is underage drinking, specifically by Dahmer himself. There is a little bit of violence, but not too much as the movie is based on Dahmer in his high school years. There are some sexual scenes - 1. You see a magazine shown with a woman half naked (top half), 2. Dahmer is completely naked when he gets a physical from a doctor, however no frontal shot is shown. 3. He is shown masturbating from behind in one scene, again no frontal shot is shown. Men are also seen shirtless (mainly Dahmer) in a few scenes. Overall, I thought the movie was really good. Marc Meyers did a wonderful job of writing the movie of what isn't shown. Ross Lynch also did a great job portraying the role of Jeffery Dahmer.
