This movie depicts an altercation between young men after one youth makes crude sexual remarks about another’s adoptive mother and sister. During the scuffle, punches are thrown, people are pushed and a gun is pulled out and fired (no one is shot). In a later scene a character claims to be packing a gun and to be a “card carrying member of the NRA.” A car accident occurs and two of the passengers are seen with some blood and minor injuries. Infrequent mild and moderate profanities are heard, including a couple of crude anatomical terms and one use of an accurate male anatomical term. A married couple is seen talking in bed and when the man rolls on top of the woman she asks if he is still paying attention to what she is saying. A woman discusses her drug addictions. A character is briefly seen smoking a cigar. Men sip beer.
