SEX/NUDITY 5 - Lots of sexual innuendo (including references to acting in
pornographic films) and lots of kissing, sometimes passionately (in one brief scene, we
see a couple kissing passionately while lying on top of a kitchen table). In a montage of
scenes and in several different scenes, a man and woman talk or kiss passionately in bed
(it's implied that they have intercourse, but we never see anything); in a couple of
scenes, they're obviously nude but covered by sheets (only bare shoulders and arms
are visible). We hear two people presumably having intercourse, giggling and sighing
behind a closed door. A woman pulls a man down on the floor with her (we only see them
disappear behind a book shelf). In a comical scene, a man embraces and talks to a stuffed
gorilla wearing a bra and panties. We briefly see a mild cover of a pornographic video
tape and a mild cover of a pornographic magazine (no nudity is visible on either one). We
see a couple dancing suggestively in the background of a scene, and in another scene men
watch (and the camera focuses on) a woman dancing suggestively in a nightclub. Several
women wear cleavage- and midriff-revealing tops.
VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - We see a wrecked car that has run into a tree; both the
passenger and driver (who had been drinking) have a few bloody cuts on their faces. A man
throws a lamp at a wall, two men briefly shove each other, a young girl is knocked down
when hit in the back with a basketball and a man is seen passed out on the floor and later
recovering in a hospital after drinking shampoo. We see a close-up of a man's nipple
ring and he screams in pain as a woman touches it.
PROFANITY 5 - One F-word, a profane finger gesture, a scatological
reference, several mild obscenities and a couple of insults. [profanity glossary]
DISCUSSION TOPICS - Falling in love, exploring one's sexuality, college
life, drinking, pregnancy scares, implied marijuana use, figuring out what you want to do
with your life.
MESSAGE - If two people truly love each other, they'll find a way to
make their relationship work.
