the young woman has her legs wrapped around the young man's waist. A young woman dances seductively for her boyfriend during a football
game (hoping to motivate him) and a young woman dances suggestively with a young man. A young woman flirts with her teacher (who is
obviously older) trying to convince him not to flunk her, and another young woman makes sexual overtures toward a man. A young woman
touches a young man's face and he leans in to kiss her but she stops him. A young woman touches a young man's knee, and a young woman
caresses a young man's face. Two young women sleep together with their arms around each other (it is suggested that there may be a sexual

and kick during cheerleading practice and again during football games. Young women in shorts and tube tops dance on a stage during a

backs and shoulders throughout the movie. A boy looks at a magazine with photos of women in bathing suits. There are several lines
delivered by a young French woman (who is still stumbling over some English terms) that can be construed as sexual in nature: she talks
about a young man having "big meat" (he's holding a large barbecue rib), she says about another young woman's dancing ability, "she really
knows how to spread her legs," and she says to a young man, "it must be nice to have a girl like that stuck on your body." A young woman
talks about someone being drug addicted and using prostitution to pay for her drugs.
VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - Two young women fight with ear pinching, face slapping, hair pulling and screaming. A young woman raises
her hand to hit another young woman, she is stopped and the other young woman slaps her in the face. A young woman slaps a young man in
the face. Young men slam into each other knocking each other through the air and to the ground during football games. A young woman
screams and attacks another young woman holding her by the throat and shaking her. A young woman screams and ransacks her room in
frustration. A young woman talks about her father having died and her lover having drowned. A young woman vomits on the floor (we see this
scene a couple of times and we hear a splat and gagging). A woman, covered from head-to-toe with slabs of beef, marches onto a stage where
she is slammed down by a man. A young man punches himself in the stomach after nearly choking on a piece of food (we see it fly from his
mouth). A little girl gets her tongue stuck to an ice sculpture of a cow (on the rump). A young woman swats a huge cockroach on the wall.
