Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in 17 Again...

Sexual content in this film will likely be the greatest concern for parents. However some positive messages are extolled after an adult, who is given the opportunity to be 17 again, recognizes and begins to teach about the role of sex and the importance of waiting until you are married. A teen girl decides to leave her boyfriend when he asks for sex. Frequent sexual innuendo and discussions about pregnancy are heard   often between teen characters. A man, who has been transformed into a teen boy, makes sexual advances toward his wife (she doesn’t recognize him as being her husband). A teen girl makes advances toward a teen boy, not recognizing he is her father. Men engage in a fight using swords and other medieval implements. A teen boy is slapped multiple times. Teens bully a boy and engage in fistfights. Men use a red light to imitate a police officer and drive through traffic. Crude anatomical terms are used, along with derogatory sexual language relating to older women. Infrequent mild profanities and terms of deity are used as expletives. Teen drinking depicted at a house party.

Actor Zac Efron will be familiar to teen audiences from his performances in High School Musical, High School Musical 2 and High School Musical 3:Senior Year.
