Adolescent/ young adult themes

There are many references and sex jokes in this film. The main girl’s name sounds like “orally” and is harassed by a boy sexually. This movie features everything I hated about the 80s, the school bullying, the terrible fashion, scooter races in PE, school bus rides etc. it was pretty accurate.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
age 14+

Unbelieveably bad, lots of sexual references

We expected a king of Napoleon Dynamite type movie, not even close. The main character gets a bad hairdo and is referred to as 'Pubic' by her class mates for most of the film. Her real name is Aurelie so when she's not being called 'Pubic' she is referred to as 'oral-licky-lick' for the rest of the movie. She There also mentions throughout about how one of the boys in her class wants to 'stick his finger in her poontang'. This happens throughout, she's also offered 5 bucks for sex. Beyond all of this, the story itself is disjointed, poorly written and completely predictable. Even without the all of the inappropriate dialog, this movie is still terrible. How this is rated 3 stars and the sites review by Michael Ordona doesn't mention any of this, will think twice before I blindly trust a review from Common Sense media again.
