Highly Crass and Not For Children

I (a young adult) started watching this with my parents and it was extremely uncomfortable. There are some very explicit scenes between the main couple in bed... complete with screaming and onlookers. There are many sexualized conversations throughout the movie. Additionally, there is a scene in which the lead woman is sexually harassed and the situation laughed off. Somehow, this film pulled a PG rating but it absolutely should be rated PG-13. The film had a comical premise, but it with was paired with crass displays of relationships and lacked any positive moral message or developed storyline.
