SEX/NUDITY 9 - Several instances of sexual innuendo, lots of kissing, often
passionately, and several passionate embraces. We see a man's bare backside and a woman's
bare breasts as they have intercourse with lots of thrusting. A man nuzzles a woman's neck
as he stands behind her, unzips her skirt, puts his hand down the front of her underwear
and caresses her breast underneath her shirt; they then move to the floor, he puts her
feet on his shoulders and removes her skirt and they have intercourse with little, then
lots of thrusting (by the end of the scene they're obviously naked but we only see their
bare shoulders). A boy and girl kiss passionately and lie on the ground, but the girl gets
up a few seconds later after the boy refuses to have intercourse with her. A man in boxers
and a woman in a slip kiss on a bed. We see a naked woman's full front and back sides and
a naked man's backside as they skinny dip. We see a woman's bare breast through her open
shirt. A woman removes her bra from underneath her shirt and briefly touches her clothed
breasts as she looks in a mirror. We see a woman's bra through her wet shirt and we see a
woman in her bra and panties. Many people in bathing suits (one woman is seen in a tiny
bikini) and several women in short shorts and cleavage- and midriff-revealing tops.
VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - A man is punched in the face and gets a bloody nose. A man
grabs a woman and forces her to kiss him; also, a man grabs a boy and girl and tries to
force them into a car. A girl is slapped twice and a girl slaps a woman. A girl pulls
another's hair and a girl playfully slaps another's head. A boy has several red boils on
his chest and face after being stung by wasps. For a split-second, we see menstruation
blood on a girl's panties. A man throws a milk carton at a wall.
