- Loads of sexual innuendo, sometimes graphic (including references to orgasm, masturbation and oral sex) and many kissing scenes. A boy performs oral sex on a girl and we see her spread legs with his head between them (we hear moaning and see her face as she climaxes). We see a couple making out and then see her move down his body and hear his zipper being unzipped; we hear him moaning, then we see his back as he presumably ejaculates into a cup of beer (which is later inadvertently swallowed by a male character). A blurry pornographic movie shows a bare breast and we also hear moaning and sex talk. A boy has sex with a pie (we see the bottom of his bare buttocks as he thrusts into the pastry). A couple are in bed and we see bare shoulders and sexual movement, a couple undress (his bare chest is visible) and he gets on top of her to have sex (nothing else shown), and a girl gets on top of a boy to have sex after he strips suggestively (we see his bare chest and boxers). A boy strips to his boxers in a sexual manner (with thrusting gestures, etc.), sits next to a girl wearing a robe and panties and attempts to touch her but has two orgasms (while still wearing boxers) before anything else happens. A young woman's bare breasts are shown as she looks at pornographic magazines and reaches into her panties; we then hear her moaning and see her face while a great deal of teenagers watch (these scenes are being shown over the Internet). A boy is about to begin masturbating but all we see is his sock-clad erection. A father shows pornographic magazines to his son and comments on what is shown in the photos (which we can't see). We see a condom in a boy's hand and a picture of a vibrator. A boy makes a sexual gesture (like riding a horse) while talking about a friend's prom date.
- A few pratfalls. We see semen in beer that gets inadvertently sipped. We see someone vomit into a toilet and on a girl's dress. A boy passes gas numerous times and has noisy diarrhea in the girl's bathroom. A boy urinates in his pants and we see the spreading stain.
- About 24 F-words and one obscene finger gesture, many scatological references, anatomical references and mild obscenities.
- Sex, masturbation, virginity, commitment, love, conformity, high school.
- Sex shouldn't be the most important thing to you while in high school, but it usually does take center stage anyway.
Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.
We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.
Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
